Benefits of update
Economy of metal
True shape nesting with Vintech RCAM 11 significantly decreases and optimises the material expences.
For an enterprise that cuts, with true shape nesting, 100 tons of structural steel per month, every 1% better material utilisation leads to savings of at least 800 Euro/month.
Vintech RCAM 11 allows nesting on usable remnants.
The implementation of Vintech RCAM leads to economy of metal ranging from 5 to 30% and a minimisation of the usable remnants in the factory warehouse.
Economy of time for production-preparation
The increase in the productivity of the engineer allows the technical preparation of the true shape nesting production to be safely performed by less qualified experts.
Modern thermal cutting machines give rise to a very essential requirement for the productivity of the CAM system:
Each nesting layout should be generated for a period shorter than the time needed to produce it.
Otherwise, the machine will stand waiting for the NC program "to arrive".
VINTECH CADCAM constantly improves the various functions for special cutting methods such as common cuts, chain cutting, avoiding collisions, working with bridges. These methods decrease the length of the cutting moves, the number of piercings and time for lifting the torch away from the plate and then lowering it in piercing position.
- Using common cuts, wherever possible, leads to 15% reduction of the NC program time;
- The improved work with bridges and usable remnants can save up to 10% of the individual time, allowing quick removal of the parts and the remnant from the machine table.
- The functions for cutting tha scrap skeleton can save hours of hard work for separating thick parts from the scrap after produsing a nesting layout.
”Just in time” nesting
Vintech RCAM 11 can perform preliminary nesting for offering on orders, as well as production preparation.
Now the offering of true shape nesting is performed in minimum time and the production preparation can be shifted as close to the actual moment of production as possible.
In result it is possible to:
- merge parts from different orders in a single nesting layout (grouping by design and organisational features),
- nesting on plates and usable remnants available on stock.
