Major new enhancements have been made to these functionalities within RADAN 2022.1:
- 3D file import
- Radm-ax / Radtube
3D file import
Nest Projects changes
The Nest Projects environment has been further enhanced to give the user more visibility and control over the nesting process.
New ways of importing files into nesting include DESIGNER files, RADAN .sym files and .CSV files to improve processes and communication with logistics systems.
The user has now more visibility and control over the nesting process, which allows further optimization of material usage.
Part identification has been improved by adding standard report functionality to produce labels. Labels can be defined freely and can contain order specific information for improved material flow within the organization.
Automatic nesting now allows parts to be categorized for ‘pre-cut’ blank nesting and ‘single-part’ nesting so that the logistical flow of the parts is further optimized without compromizing automation.
New functionality for punching machines makes it easier to make fine adjustments to the tooling application on a part and adds security features to highlight potentially hazardous situations.
Radm-ax / Radtube
New strategies for cutting structural steel make sure the machine tool and the material are used to their full potential.
Enhancements in nesting allow more orientations for parts to be attempted to improve the material utilization. Additional functionality for managing assemblies improves tracking of parts in the production process.
More automation features allow Radbend to be successfully used in an automatic way, reducing the time needed by the software user.
DESIGNER now automatically warns users about flanges that are too short to be produced – any parts with errors can easily be singled out for inspection, significantly reducing the time spent by the user.
Sheet metal features
New functionality allows hems and etching to be added and managed on a part.
Tenons and mortices
To make it easier to assemble tubular structures, tenons can be used. This eliminates costly errors and greatly improved speed of assembly.
