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.
Supporting a wide range of machine and technology requirements at every step of programming – from part preparation to the NC code generation, including nesting and tool path definition – the CAD/CAM cutting software Almacam Cut can pilot any type of cutting machine. Providing unique nesting algorithms that fit any type of cutting needs, Almacam Cut significantly reduces material loss rates. The software functions automatically but lets Users manage specific situations while guiding them in order to guarantee optimum execution of the programming. Almacam Cut provides completely secure and traceable data management in a collaborative environment. Adopting the “Industry 4.0” approach, Almacam interfaces seamlessly with the company’s information system and can easily be connected to Production Management and ERP software amongst others. Almacam provides workshop management tools, and a production statistics module, for complete integration into the “ERP/Production Management/Workshop” digital sequence.
