PN4000 is the CAD / CAM / Nesting system for PPS / ERP-driven programming of CNC cutting, punching and portal milling machines of all kinds. The various modules and interfaces enable flexible job shop manufacturing, up to unmanned fully automated, industrial process chains.
Our specialists analyze together with you the requirements and put the needed modules together – and determine, if necessary, the individual development / adaptation effort.
From the finished assembly to the production-ready DXF file, the data sets must pass through several process steps. With our integrated bending simulation, we offer you a manufacturer-independent complete solution. This eliminates all interfaces between 3D and 2D. Our software solution generates the nesting, the unwinding and the finished bending programme from your parts in one interface – fully automatically ERP-controlled if required.
„In the past, it was new production methods that made our work easier. Today, digital imaging and optimization of manufacturing processes with integrated connectivity bring significant improvements and increases in efficiency. ‘The products and the philosophy of WiCAM fit perfectly to the dynamics of our company. Manufacturer-independent, interconnected, reliable and individually adaptable to innovations in the shortest possible time.“
Lasern automates the programming of laser systems. The application has material and sheet thickness-dependent databases. Complex geometry shapes, contour sizes, labeling and special machining of a component are automatically detected and processed optimally.
Special functions are available for oxyfuel and plasma systems. For example, bevel information can be interpreted in CAD and automatically converted into correct processing.
For waterjet systems the following functions are available.
Punching automates the programming of CNC punching machines, from rectangular parts to complex contours. The algorithms recognize and control special tools, common cut-outs, necessary loading and unloading cycles, and avoid deformations and dangerours areas.
PunchLaserCombi automates the programming of combined punch laser machines. The advantages of the respective technologies and the synergies of both are used fully. Especially complex programs can be created extreme fast and easy.
Shear automatically create the machining for all kinds of ‘right angle shear / punch’ (RAS) combination machines.
Router automates the creation of portal milling programs up to 2 ½D. Different units for portal milling, drilling and sawing are automatically detected and supported.
PNBend is the integrated bending simulation in the PN4000 for external programming of press brakes from various manufacturers. The automatic functions create the bending programmes for your machines quickly and easily from 3D data.
Extensive functions for creating and changing drawings, as well as the transfer from other CAD systems.
Parametric creates parameterized individual parts or assemblies in different sizes and designs.
Nesting automatically puzzles your parts with the best material utilization and the highest process safety.
The remnant management automatically creates remnants for further use in future nesting.
The creation of holistic automation solutions based on CAD and order data has always been one of WiCAM’s core competencies.
This includes communication with various solutions of warehouse systems, transport logistics, order systems, calculation programs, etc.
Especially the ERP / PPS connectivity provides our customers with holistic next level automation solutions – from raw materials through production and delivery to post-calculation and analysis.
Every modern production has its own philosophies, production methods and production steps. Since the first program line, we pay particular attention to these individual needs and ensure the integration into the automatic programming process. Together with our customers, we have proven over the last decades with thousands of solutions: not possible does not exist.
By linking PPS / ERP systems, CAD data and any data sources, our solutions enable the highest possible level of automation. Regardless of whether you want to control individual loading, unloading, storage or conveying systems, or integrate process-related techniques such as coil forming, bending, embossing, milling, chamfering, engraving, labeling, sorting, palletising, – or combine machines and options from different manufacturers – We look forward to partner with you to develop uniquely efficient solutions.
