Lantek,a strategic partner providing software solutions for the shipbuilding industry

The multinational leader in CAD/CAM/MES/ERP solutions has incorporated specific functions for sheet metal design, nesting and machining in the shipbuilding industry.

22 Jul 2014 ---- The ability to adapt to the specific needs of any metal company is one of Lantek’s competitive differences. The multinational has consolidated its global presence in metal-related sectors, such as automotive, construction, iron and steel, the production of large metal structures, railroads and the naval sector, with a total of more than 14,000 customers in more than 100 countries.

It is in the latter, the shipbuilding industry, where Lantek has investedyears in theresearch and development of specific software solutions to optimize the processes of sheet metal design, nesting and machining, making these processesmore cost-effective for the construction of ships and other vessels. Not surprisingly, leading companies such as Hyundai, Navantia,Astilleros de Murueta and Ravestein BV, among others, have used Lantek technology for years.

In this vein, Lantek provides naval companies with geometry importers that are compatible with the top ship design systems on the market. Additionally, the multinational offers technology options for machining management, like loops and chamfers that help program the cutting machines and rotating triple torch, and clamps that allow very long pieces to be cut, for results that are 100% faithful to the generated design.

Specific options for the naval industry include the ability to manage cutting with multiple torches to increase the production of each machine, continuous cutting to eliminate drilling times and increase the wear life of the cutting nozzles or the ability to manage any marking, engraving or puncturing process available on the machine.

Saving time and materials with nesting solutions

Lantek solutions also include nesting software for cutting applications, offering automatic and semiautomatic nesting algorithms or nesting for multiple torches that, among other benefits, allow us to optimize the material and reduce the machining time.

In addition, Lantek technology enables nesting and automatic machining of double and symmetrical sheets, a comprehensive control of the remnants and pre-nesting to select the sheet format with the best performance.

Other functionalities that Lantek has adapted to the naval sector include time and cost calculation, machine loads preview, traceability or integration with any existing management system.

These competitive advantages have positioned Lantek as one of the key suppliers in the metal industry, specializing in specific activities, such as those related to the navalsector, which require agility, precision andcomplete adaptationof technology solutions to their production processes.
