This includes communication with storage systems, parts logistic, calculation and parts separation.
Various WiCAM customers have been using the material warehouses and storage logistics by Remmert for years.
In 2019, Remmert and WiCAM decide on a strategic cooperation for the further development of solutions in this area. Especially the PPS connectivity and the closed IT-chain from raw material to delivery provide our joint customers with holistic next level automation solutions.
The storage logistics provider Remmert and the software manufacturer WiCAM seal a strategic cooperation at the Blechexpo 2019 to strengthen the development of holistic solutions for agile material logistics and fully automated part sorting for sheet metal processing productions. Goal is the standardization and simplification of interfaces, as well as the standardization of the information flow from ERP / PPS via CAD / CAM / Nesting to raw material and finished parts logistics.
Already successfully implemented customer solutions for communication and control of z. B. Remmert LaserFLEX, Lasersort with WiCAMs PN4000 form the basis for joint projects in the year 2020. Users benefit from increased process reliability, achieve measurable increases in productivity and can grow their systems modularly with increasing requirements in regards to hardware and software.
CADCAM/Nesting solution for ERP/PPS controlled CNC cutting, punching, shearing, milling and combined machining – manual to fully automatic.
Order management, detailed planning, production feedback and monitoring of deadlines and production.
Where standard trucks are already heavily overloaded, the fun of Broshuis trailers from the Netherlands, which specializes in heavy haulage, is just beginning. To manfacture the trailers, in 2018 Broshuis installed a high-tech production facility with a Remmert storage system and Mazak Optiplex fiber laser machines 6.0 and DDL 4.0 of the latest generation.
For bending, Broshuis uses LVD software and machinery. Production control and automatic CADCAM / nesting programming are handled by WiCAM’s PN4000 in combination with the Ridder IQ ERP system.
As the central component of the IT process chain, the PN4000 receives the production data before the actual production to provide the ERP system with the necessary information regarding required material and time capacities for the scheduling.
To do this, PN4000 communicates bidirectionally with the Remmert warehouse in real time. When initiating the order, PN4000 receives the developed sheet metal parts from LVD’s CADCAM B, nests the orders according to date, priority, material types and aditionally production criteria. The Remmert storage and transport system receives the production plan from PN4000 and manages together with the laser machines the complete logistics up to the point of delivery for the bending machines.
With each finished sheet, PN4000 reports the cutted parts to the Ridder IQ for further processing.
