Automation: creation of programs and post processors for CNC machines
When exporting 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.
AUTOMATIC CREATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF PROGRAMS
FOR CNC MACHINES
Those programs take into account all the potential adjustments that have been made on pieces and the actual capacities of the machines available. It is a dramatic added value compared to importing the DSTV exported from the detailing software as it guarantees a seamless launching of production on CNC machines. Operators can then benefit from that time saving to work on other jobs in masked times.
WINCN (POST-PROCESSEURS POUR LES MACHINES FICEP)
The WinCN is the name of the post processors that we supply for Ficep CNC machines. They ensure a
seamless execution of desired programs.
DSTV+ EXPORT (FILES EXECUTABLE BY POST-PROCESSORS
OF MACHINES FROM OTHER SUPPLIERS).
Those files are the ones created for post processors from other suppliers than Ficep. Since most fabricators are
equipped with machines acquired from different suppliers, we can integrate with them easily.
USE OF BARCODES AVAILABLE TO RUN PROGRAMS
Barcode systems can be installed on machines to run the programs even more seamlessly.
CREATION OF PROGRAMS FOR
Steel Projects PLM takes into account the workflows for each piece. If
you are equipped with automatic conveyors, that information can then
be included in the programs created to route them automatically from
one machine to the next one.
ON-DEMAND DEVELOPMENT OF POST-PROCESSORS FOR MACHINES NOT
KNOWN YET BY STEEL PROJECTS PLM
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.
