Over 40 years Alma has built up a reputation as the leading specialist in automatic nesting of complex shapes for cutting. Alma is a leading developer of CAD/CAM software for sheet metal working, cutting and robotics. Alma is constantly growing, is present in 8 countries and is represented in many other countries via its distribution network.
We offer the most comprehensive range of CAD/CAM software for cutting in every form, sheet metal working and mechanical welding: cutting by fluid jet, punching, milling/routing, 5-axis cutting, robotized cutting, cutting of circular and oblong tubes, folding/unfolding, robotized arc welding, etc.
These applications are completed by a set of modules centered on production management and control (quotes, planning) and integration into the industrial company’s information system. Our software products are an essential link between CAD, ERP and workshops in the digital chain for sheet metal working and mechanical welding, responding to the challenges of Industry 4.0.
In parallel with the development of application software, we are commercializing our cutting optimization algorithms in the form of software components. These two activities mutually enrich each other with invaluable technical expertise, and ensure we are able to perfect our products, to achieve optimum satisfaction of our customers’ needs.
Almacam Weld allows you to optimize the utilization rate of your welding robots resulting in increased flexibility and improved productivity. Through a graphic interface, Almacam Weld allows you to program a robot from a virtual scene and simulate its movements. The assemblies to weld, together with the tooling, are imported from a 3D CAD system. Almacam Weld combines welder know-how together with programming and simulation tools that allow you to create programs in optimal conditions, and even to validate the design of a tooling or to study a cell set-up. Thanks to Almacam Weld you can generate programs that will require no further touch-ups in the workshop. A post-processor specifically adapted to the controller generates the programs prepared with Almacam Weld in all the robot languages. The cell calibration and customization of the post-processor make it possible to integrate all the robot self-correction functions (shifting of trajectories via sensing or joint follow-up, laser camera, etc.) Almacam Weld also manages multi-robot cells.
