Open system for individual solutions
FINEST CAM module allows you to quickly and easily generate NC programs for your machine. Special and efficient algorithms allow you to optimize your cutting process in terms of materials and machine time.
Collision control in pull mode.
Integrated tech. functions
Integrated technological functions (chain cuts, bridges, joints, economy-cut systems, programmable rapid traverses)
Pieces & orders management
Management of pieces and orders (with automatic booking-off)
Aut./man. allocation of cutting conditions
Automatic or manual allocation of cutting conditions as well as setting of first-cut flags and cut-out flags (related to material, thickness and contour).
Variable flag generator
Variable flag generator which can be expanded by the use.
Setting of micro-joints on any contour element.
Marking texts (with integrated text generator)
Text fields can be defined on the cut pieces, in which either data from the order library or pieces library (drawing no.,customer etc) can be automatically inserted, or even free texts can be entered.
All truetype characters installed on the computer can be vectorised with this function, then optimised with the integrated element reduction and finally cut or engraved. Single letters or complete characters or logos can be produced in this way.
The labels can be freely defined in shape and content, either with a drawing, texts from library fields, free texts or barcodes.
Reliability-oriented travel path definition
This function is used for the automatic laying of first-cut flags in order to prevent Z-axis lift, and it generates automatic by-passing for increasing the process reliability.
Circular blank optimisation
The function permits the automatic nesting of parts with a circular shaped outer contour on a prescribed right angle in line with different strategies.
Cutting bevels control of tilting burners (2 ½ D cutting)
Many components have to be provided with bevels for further machining. The bevel module in FINEST provides for powerful tools which are easy to learn and which can produce all the usual types of bevels on components. A high level of consideration is given to machine parameters and degrees of latitude of the cutting head, so that an optimum cutting result is created.
Universal programming system for machines from different manufacturers
FINEST AutoNest can be used efficiently starting just with one hour a day of manual nesting, in order to rationalise the nesting operations and thereby to reduce costs. A further additional automation can be achieved through FINEST AutoFin.
Various strategies for the automatic allocation of components
Single piece nesting
This function calculates sensible angle positions and offsets for single pieces, in order to achieve a parquet-type layout. If the multiple layout of one single component on a metal sheet is required, this function opens up to the user the additional opportunity of creating a nesting result with minimised cutting waste.
Save time through professional data management
FINEST CUT contains convenient libraries for secure organisation and management of all important data. Depending on the expansion stage of your system, the following are available to you:
The relevant machine parameters and the desired cutting process are stored in the machine file and in the technology library.
The technical cutting information is saved on every available cutting machine and for every type of material and thickness. The linking of the technology between pieces, plates and the cutting plans ensures from the start that with FINEST there is quick and efficient working
Central capture and management of parameters for machine types and individual technologies
Automated assignment of the parameters for the machine type and individual technology when creating parts and diagrams
Order management with quantity control and monitoring of pre-set parameters (permitted angles and mirror imaging)
Management of material and sheet offcuts
Traceability of orders and components
Monitoring of drawing version
Plausibility checks with defined pre-set values
A system for the complete solution
Modules developed from practice
Modules developed from practice, designed for practical application
A lean system but with an extensive range of functions
Ease of integration in ERP environments
A generalised post-processor is used in FINEST CUT, which generates NC codes for different machines by means of parameter files. Completely optimised post-processors are available for the cutting machines listed below.
Laser and water jet cutting machines
Gas and plasma cutting machines
New post-processors can of course be produced on presentation of the NC files and the programming handbooks.
