December 17, 2012 - Radan has appointed the newly-formed Camsoft company as a reseller in Denmark. Camsoft is run by Torsten Woldbye Cornett, who has five years experience in the sheet metal industry. “As the world’s most powerful sheet metal CAD/CAM software, Radan is our main business focus,” he says.
His sheet metal background includes working as a production engineer, applications engineer, programmer, trainer and sales engineer. Having recently undertaken an extensive market study of the industry in Denmark, Torsten Woldbye Cornett feels that Radan will be able to help many companies take their business to the next level.
Camsoft joins the Radan stable at exactly the right time – just as the latest release, Radan 2013, has become available. New developments provide considerably improved support for multi-tools, meaning they are much easier to use. “This will be prove to be extremely valuable to companies in Denmark.”
He says the traditional way of setting up multi-tools in the machine system data file is cumbersome and time-consuming. However, a major concept change in Radan 2013 provides considerable support for multi-tools.
“Radan takes the principle that a multi-tool is a tool, not a turret, which has implications as to how multi-tools are deployed in the software and configured and manipulated by users. In Radan 2013 multi-tool configurations are deployed by taking the ‘variable (to buy)’ for the machine tool in question.
“For example, a configuration for a Trumpf machine will have the definitions – the shape and number of stations – of all multi-tools the customer may purchase for their machine tool, without allocating it to a tool station at that time. This is less work-intensive and more flexible than the traditional system of always allocating a multi-tool to a station.”
