SigmaTEK Announces SigmaBEND AP™

CINCINNATI, OH; JULY 20, 2012 — SigmaTEK Systems, LLC, the world’s leading CAD/CAM nesting authority, announces the release of SigmaBEND AP™. This latest software version incorporates the unfolding functionality of AutoPol™ (FCC Software AB) into SigmaTEK’s press brake solution SigmaBEND AP™.  

SigmaNEST® Product Manager, James Lindsey stated:

“Automation, flexibility and control are keys to SigmaBEND AP.  The software automatically recognizes bend information stored in both 2D and 3D CAD files.  SigmaBEND AP users have direct seamless access to SolidWorks and Inventor files while interfaces to NX, Pro/E, Catia and CAD neutral file formats including IGES, STEP, SAT, and Parasolid reduce file import, unfolding and nesting steps and errors.  Other features include real-time 3D simulation with collision detections along with the ability for users to determine levels of manual control and automation for bend sequencing, tool and setup selection, finger stop positioning, and simulation.”

Benefits: Speed, Quality, and Flexibility

Speed

  • Faster, more reliable programming away from machine tool
  • CAD integration and automation results in shorter programming time
  • Faster set-up time with quick access to manufacturing information
  • More effective re-use of NC programs

Quality

  • Fewer design errors
  • Centralized database
  • CAD/CAM system Integration
  • Check process via realistic bending simulation
  • Collision check eliminates costly programming errors

Flexibility

  • CAM system – direct switching between different press brakes
