Missler Software, developer of TopSolid'Wood, the integrated CAD/CAM software for the woodworking industry, has recently announced the generation of post-processors for the machines Biesse, the leader manufacturer of CNC machinery for the furniture and carpentry industry.
TopSolid'Wood is an integrated design, manufacturing and management (CAD/CAM/PDM) software specialized for wood processing. TopSolid'Wood outputs to the CNC plant floor through TopSolid'WoodCam, an integrated CAM solution which automatically produces the ISO code, via a post processor, to manufacture parts on CNC machinery. TopSolid'Wood offers unique and complete simulation of the machine tool which is vital to verify complex 5 axis tool paths.
TopSolid'WoodCam outputs to the Biesse Rover series CNC machines and can manage all machining operations from 2 ½ D, 3D, 4 and 5 axis. Many software functions exist to optimise machining operations with Biesse machines: automatic positioning of parts, assemblies and nested parts; topological analysis which permits the choice of the optimum machining operation; automatic creation of tool paths in profiling, grooving, surfacing from 2 ½ D to 5 axes and customization of machining strategies by the generation of re-usable processes for greater automation of operations.
According to Dominique Laffret, Vice-President of Strategic Relationships at Missler Software: "We are very happy to collaborate with Biesse. Missler Software's strategy is to work closely with machine tool manufacturers to ensure that our post-processor development is in line with machine developments. TopSolid'Wood is a completely integrated CAD/CAM solution so we need to keep abreast of all machine innovations to ensure that our software is up to date. Biesse is a leading manufacturer of machines for the wood industry on a worldwide scale and we have many customers using Biesse machines."
On one level Missler Software provides an interface to Biesse's shop floor CAM solution BiesseWorks. For more complex machining TopSolid'Wood can directly drive Biesse machines. With top-class Biesse machines, Missler Software will provide to customers a CAD/CAM solution to drive these machines.
Missler Software and its European resellers work closely with Biesse in Europe. TopSolid'Wood was on demonstration at the Biesse booth at Ligna in May '07 and displayed at the BiesseInside in Biesse S.p.A Headquarter in October (Biesseinside, 10-13 October, Pesaro). Close collaboration also exists between Missler Software and Biesse America - TopSolid'Wood was demonstrated on the various One2One Biesse open days and on the Biesse booth at the AWFS wood trade fair which took place in Las Vegas in July 2007.
