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.
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, etc. – or combine machines and options from different manufacturers – We look forward to partner with you to develop uniquely efficient solutions.
Communication with the PPS system handles the data exchange for capacity scheduling, material orders and production dates in real time. Over the years, various functions have been refined further in regards to process security and material usage.
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.
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.
