CADMAN is enhanced for smart manufacturingBanbury-based LVD Pullmax Ltd (www.lvdgroup.com) has released a new version of its CADMAN programming and shop management software.

The v8.5 release includes enhancements for every CADMAN module, such as an improved dashboard for more-intuitive use; it also extends the software’s integration capabilities to include the next generation of LVD’s Touch-P punch-press control, as well as non-LVD cutting and punching equipment.

In addition to its new look and feel, there are major updates such as improved bend solution identification in CADMAN-B bend CAM software, including tool pre-selection based on ‘active catalogue(s)’.

Furthermore, CADMAN-B is now available for use with LVD’s Synchro-Form press brakes — the next generation of adaptive bending system.

The company’s Touch-B control software, which can be used in combination with CADMAN-B, is also improved, resulting in a significantly higher press brake speed.

Furthermore, CADMAN-L and CADMAN-P CAD/CAM software modules have been upgraded with advanced nesting capabilities for laser cutting and punching.

New functions such as ‘minimal heat impact’ when finishing parts one by one, as well as material-thickness-defined parameters, ensure more smooth and automatic preparation for laser cutting.

For punching, smart features such as ‘avoid hits with form tools’ and ‘punch with form tools last’ ensure reliable punching preparation.

Further enhancements see CADMAN-JOB connect to the latest Touch-P control for LVD punch presses, as well as integrate to other non-LVD fabrication cutting equipment, while the company’s Touch-i4 tablet, which works as a ‘companion’ to CADMAN-JOB and helps sort parts after cutting, now has the ability to assign parts to a certain location.

Finally, CADMAN-SDI (Smart Drawing Importer) makes generating accurate cost estimates from imported CAD files easier
and more accurate, with a greater number of built-in cost drivers that help fabricators identify their indirect manufacturing costs.

Be seen in all the right places!
