Already in the 90s WiCAM developed the first postprocessors for these machines.
Today hundreds of Salvagnini machines produce and communicate with WiCAM’s PN software.
Especially the PPS-connectivity, the common cuts and the combination with any production process of other manufacturers enable our customers with Salvagnini machines already today holistic ‘next level’ automation solutions.
“To begin programming, the parametric module generates the bending information for each individual component by drawing on the orders stored in the Navision ERP system. Depending on the size, it determines whether parts are to be bent manually or automatically by the Salvagnini P4 bending cell. The next step involves coil-optimised nesting. The length of each plate is individually optimised and sheared at the six-head decoiler in the required sequence.”
The manufacturer-independent CAD/CAM/Nesting system for all well-known machines – and all PPS/ERP and CAD systems. Control your machinery IT-integrated, fully automatic – and, if desired, decentralized. The powerful solutions of WiCAM ensure maximum productivity today and create the flexibility for the challenges of tomorrow.
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.
PNBend is the bending simulation for external programming of press brakes by different manufacturers. The automatic functions create the bending programs for your machines from 3D data quick and easy.
Process data for the bend zone is imported directly. All bending information of the component (opening angle, radius, punch, die and special bending techniques) can be viewed and changed in PNBend.
The necessary data such as CAD files, revisions, dates, variants and runtimes are checked and calculated far before the actual production in a simulation run of PN4000. The PPS / ERP system uses this information for planning, precalculation and material ordering. On the production day, the data is transferred to PN4000, which automatically creates the necessary control files for storage systems and CNC machines.
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.
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.
