New Fab. Software Balances Automation with Manual Input

Monday, October 1, 2018

Radan sheet metal fabrication software from Vero SoftwareThe latest release of Radan sheet-metal-fabrication software from Vero Software includes new functionality to give users a greater degree of manual control where flexibility is required for certain aspects of individual production processes. While Radan 2018 R2 continues to provide important automation tools for improving productivity, according to company officials, users’ knowledge and experience of a company’s components can address certain specifics often unique to their own manufacturing procedures.

One such new tool is Grid Nesting, which gives additional flexibility for users wanting to create or manipulate a nest manually. For example, if a sheet isn’t completely full, users can let the automatic nester take over, or, if they have a clear idea of what they want to do, this new function provides a simple way of filling a space with a particular part. Users even can stipulate the direction in which they want individual parts nested.

Reverse Cutting Direction is another example of providing additional user control. This new functionality is particularly important for CNC plasma-cutting tools, where working thicker material often generates considerable heat, which can cause the metal to distort. With this feature, the challenge can be resolved with a single mouse click to simply reverse the cutting direction on certain areas of the material where there might be an issue.
