March 9, 2012 - Radan, a leading CAM solutions provider, is demonstrating the benefits that it brings to the sheet metal fabrication industry at WESTEC 2012, taking place March 27 – 29, 2012, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, California.
Along with showcasing enhancements and additional functionality contained in the latest release - Radan 2012 R1, visitors to booth #3022 will see how Radan plays a vital role in helping manufacturers gain the most from their machine tool investment.
As a leading CAM software for sheet metal fabrication, Radan drives punching, profiling, nesting and bending functions for machines from a wide range of manufacturers. Radan can process entire assemblies or individual parts without file transfer, automate the programming of CNC press brakes, provide vital collision detection and design verification, and ensure peak machine efficiency. Radan assists customers in increasing their material utilization and reducing inventory, while providing a significant return on investment.
Radbend, which is Radan’s solution for offline press brake programming will also be on display in booth #3022. Generating accurate bend allowances means Radbend ensures that all bending is totally accurate and repeatable. The software gives manufacturers full, accurate 3D model simulation of the bending process, including advanced features such as automatic bend sequence calculation, automatic tool selection and automatic finger-stop placement, offering simple programming and high productivity.
As it programs and verifies bending operations offline it frees up valuable machine time and improves first-off reliability, reducing manufacturing costs. Many customers use it extensively to prove out prototypes. Costly mistakes are also eliminated with automatic detection of collisions both with the tooling and the machine tool itself.
