February 4, 2013 - Radan, acknowledged as one of the world's leading PC based CAD/CAM solutions for the Sheet Metal industries, will be showing its latest release on stand P72 at the UK's Southern Manufacturing Exhibition on February 13 and 14, at FIVE, at Farnborough ( www.industrysouth.co.uk).
Part of the Vero Software Group, Radan offers a unique combination of applications for profiling, punching and bending, along with design and production management capabilities.
Visitors to the stand will be able to see its improved support for multi-tools, meaning they are much easier to use. Radan General Manager Chris Aston says the traditional way of setting up multi-tools in the machine system data file is cumbersome and time-consuming. “However, we take the principle that a multi-tool is a tool, not a turret, which has implications as to how multi-tools are deployed by Radan and configured and manipulated by users. 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.”
The combination of all enhancements in Radan 2013 provides greater automation while still giving the user manual options if required. It contains key enhancements to the navigational tools, increasing accessibility to functions; along with improved integration of Radband; and the addition of colour making it easier to identify parts, both pre and post production.
