ABOUT THE SOFTWARE
COMPUTES/CUT is a system designed for operation with sheet metal forming machines. It can be used with laser, plasma and water jet cutting machines. The software is very intuitive. The interface is very similar to popular office suites, which makes it easy to learn and quickly implement during everyday work.
It’s delivers fast and efficient cutting through in few click.
One click to:
- autowork files CAD: you get time&cost for estimation
- automatic nesting: improve efficiency and reduce scrap
- sorting and NC programming: intelligent
COMPUTES/CUT is developed in Poland and Italy. Users who purchase COMPUTES/CUT may, at an extra fee, also buy our innovative cutting-edge nesting engine, which makes the preparation of nesting designs much easier.
The software is available in 6 languages:
BENEFITS AND FEATURES
- Simple user interface, quick and easy use:
We emphasise speed and easy access to all functions. Quick configuration shortens the time required to adjust the programme to a specific machine. With the intuitive user interface, which resembles the latest office suites, any user can quickly learn how to operate the programme.
The cutting technology can be applied automatically according to user-defined rules and diversified for each material and thickness. This allows a drastic reduction of programming times. The command for scraps destroying for the holes to avoid collisions with the laser head is very useful and indispensable if you do not want to apply microjoints even on internal contours.
The skeleton cut, the side cut or the “T” cut instead allow the user to manage the scrap of the sheet in the best way.
- Automatic code marking on part:
During the import of the geometries to be produced, COMPUTES / CUT LASER is able to automatically report the code on the part which will then be marked by the machine.
- Common cut:
The system enables common cuts between multiple parts or restriction of common cuts to a single pair of parts (with micro-joints or special notches) Benefits: Reduction of machine operation time, savings on gas, optimum use of the material.
- Automatic nesting:
The advanced algorithm enables maximum use of sheet area and quick nesting of parts on any number of sheets. In the automatic mode, COMPUTES/CUT positions the parts on a single sheet or all available sheets without the user’s involvement, based on size, shape, thickness of the materials, piercing points and exit points. It is also possible to nest parts on scraps saved in a graphic format.
- The software enables automatic, manual or mixed operation.
- Automatic: The programme uses automatic nesting of selected parts (or parts sent from the database), sorts the cutting path and creates the NC code on that basis.
- Manual: The user positions the parts on the sheets and selects the cutting order, and the programme generates the NC code.
- Mixed mode: Combination of the two previous modes – the user can make any changes at each stage and then the programme does the rest.
- Link to any CAD:
It connects to any CAD software installed and integrates within it an environment of CAD commands useful for fixing imported geometries. It imports geometric files in the following DXF, DWG, WKF, GEO and PAR formats. It is also possible to use various automatic corrections of drawing errors (removal of double entities, closing of open profiles, …)
- Material and scrap library:
The user can use sheets prepared earlier with a specific material thickness and size. The programme adapts the cutting parameters accordingly. All information about the parts is saved in a database organized in such a way that the users can easily find the information they need.
- Link to the ERP production management system:
In addition to the ability to manage production orders within the software, COMPUTES / CUT LASER can interface with other ERP management systems by direct connection or by the import/export of Excel files.
- Report printout:
Report prints are no longer a problem. COMPUTES/CUT has an integrated system for managing all reports. You can edit all types of COMPUTES/CUT reports or create new ones according to your needs. Different types of reports can be generated, including the parts list in the database. Sheets nested with the list of details present in each individual sheet, the list of sheets provided for the production of a worktop and much more
