Tuscaloosa, AL, February 5, 2007: Radan 07, the latest version of Radan’s industry leading CAD/CAM software for sheet metal applications is now shipping to customers in the USA.
The key focus for the latest release is Material Utilization, helping our users combat the ever rising cost of raw materials. “True Shape” nesting capabilities allow the user to nest components around clamps, provide angular orientation of parts within the nest and accurately compensate for individual tool shapes. Also in Radan 07 is an improved remnant handling method – with automatic recording of material for re-use in our “Remnant Nesting/Remnant Tracking” tool.
Also included is the latest release of Radbend CNC for offline programming of press brake machines with full 3D model simulation of the bending process. Combining high productivity with ease of use, the software includes features such as automatic bend sequence calculation, automatic tool selection and automatic finger stop placement, as well as powerful collision detection of components with the machine and its tooling. By programming and verifying bending operations offline, Radbend CNC frees up valuable machine time and reduces manufacturing costs. With the 07 release, the software supports an even wider range of machine tools, including Amada, Beyeler, Accurpress, LVD, Finnpower, Pullmax/Ursviken and Trumpf.
