RADAN to be Featured at EASTEC 2015
RADAN, an innovative solution for the design and manufacturing of sheet-metal products from Vero, will be showcased May 12-14 at EASTEC 2015, hosted at the Eastern States Ex-position in West Springfield, Massachusetts.
Dedicated to helping northeastern manufacturers remain competitive, EASTEC is regarded as New England’s premier manufacturing-industry event. The 2015 edition offers over 500 exhibitors, as well as complimentary conference sessions, presentations from industry ex-perts, and much more.
Guests to EASTEC are welcome learn more about RADAN by visiting booth No. 2862, where demonstrations of the software’s capabilities features will be presented.
Among the 180 improvements available in RADAN 2015 are nesting upgrades that increase productivity while maximizing materials and maintaining ease of use.
RADAN now creates more compact nests than ever before by spreading parts more evenly throughout the sheet, and by better utilizing the middle of the sheet to fully utilize materi-als. Additional nesting upgrades include the automatic application of rectangular nesting when appropriate for nearly-rectangular parts, a time-saving enhancement that helps in maximizing the sheet.
RADAN 2015 also offers improved 3D translation procedures that ensure information is im-ported more consistently. RADAN’s ability to automatically calculate the thicknesses of im-ported parts has been redesigned to yield faster and more accurate results.
An upgrade to automatic face selection enables the feature to now be applied to unfolding. It also allows users to manually specify the top face much earlier in the programming pro-cess. This functionality is particularly important for Radbend, as it ensures that the visible face of a part remains scratch-free.
A number of important machine automation functions include significant enhancements to part removal. The amount of validation each Pick instruction requires has been increased. Key part suction cups can be defined on the picker and data introduced to the machine def-inition file, defining key part suction cups that must be turned on and be positioned over the metal when picking.
Acknowledged as one of the world’s leading PC-based CAD/CAM solutions for the sheet-metal industry, RADAN offers a unique combination of applications for punching, profiling, bending, nesting, designing, and production management.
As part of the Vero Software Group, RADAN is a well-established, market-leading provider of applications essential to the design and manufacture of sheet metal components and prod-ucts.
