Edgecam and Radan to be showcased at WESTEC 2008

Southfield, MICHIGAN, February 6, 2008: Planit announced today that it will demonstrate the latest releases of Edgecam and Radan in booth 3076 at the WESTEC Advanced Productivity Exposition, taking place on March 31 – April 3, 2008, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California. This premier event presents manufacturing & metalworking technologies used in the production of world-class products. WESTEC is expected to attract manufacturing professionals ranging from company executives to production engineers.

Edgecam will demonstrate Version 12 of its market-leading CAM system for solids based manufacturing, which expands on its 5-axis machining capabilities and delivers improved CAD data management, faster toolpath generation and new options for hole cycle optimization. Edgecam Version 12 extends the range of 5-axis machine tool support to include head/table configurations for both simultaneous and positional work. This is supported by full machine simulation to aid visualization of the machining process and verify work setup. The complete machine can be displayed, including all table/head and tool movements, helping to ensure safe operation and process optimization.

Radan will demonstrate the newly released version of its industry leading CAD/CAM software for sheet metal applications. Radan 08 delivers improved processing times, enhanced 3D import capabilities and significant nesting improvements. Radan will also demonstrate advancements to RadbendCNC, its off-line press brake programming package.

Education and training are critical to production and cost efficiency. The WESTEC conference includes SME-sponsored technical programming addressing advanced manufacturing technologies and processes. WESTEC is co-sponsored by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT), and the American Machine Tool Distributors’ Association (AMTDA).
