RADAN 2021 takes an important step for manufacturers operating punching machines, and who want to optimise batches of nests. It is now possible to use Radnest Ultimate on punch.
Product Manager Olaf Körner says optimising nests with the module can reduce the number of raw material sheets by eight per cent in a year. “Manufacturers spending hundreds of thousands of pounds a year will find that gives them massive savings.” He says many manufacturers would notice the material saving, but also, having more parts on a sheet takes less time to produce the batch. “Another welcome additional saving.”
Set-up sheets can now be automatically generated and sent to each machine, saving around 50 minutes in an average day of producing up to 80 nests. The NC code for the job goes to the machine, and the set-up sheet to the operator. “Now it’s done through a simple tick box, and the sheet is always up to date, with no chance of omissions or errors.”
