When exporting production data from Steel Projects PLM, it is automatically converted into programs that can be executed by CNC machines. These programs can be for parts or nesting, but also for automatic conveyors to move parts from one machine to another.
Being Steel Projects’ main historic know-how, the creation of programs for CNC machines is a critical aspect for optimizing production in your company. It ensures to send data directly executables by post processors and then limits the manual operations by operators.
The programs created know the required tools for each operation and the post processors will execute accordingly.
The WinCN is the name of the post processors that we supply for Ficep CNC machines. They ensure a seamless execution of desired steel fabrication programs.
Those files are the ones created for post processors coming from all machine producers. Since most fabricators are equipped with machines acquired from different suppliers, we can integrate with them easily.
Barcode systems can be installed on machines to run the programs even more seamlessly.
The advanced integration that we have with CNC machines allows to collect production feedback automatically. Once processed, that information allow to track piece live in the shop floors, as well as track operations for
traceability purposes. Collecting production times will also allow to analyze productivity easily.
Our long experience in steel fabrication has allowed us to integrate with many different machines, whether they are
Ficep machines or not. In case we do not know yet some of your machines, we can develop the required
post-processors to automatically connect with them.
