New from LVD Strippit (Akron, NY; www.lvdgroup.com) are CADMAN-L 3D and CADMAN-P 3D version 28, offline programming software for LVD laser cutting systems and CNC turret punch presses. The new software release provides enhanced functions for laser cutting and punching applications, including an up to 50 percent speed improvement on multi module applications.
New functionality includes advanced auto-nesting capabilities, import/export nesting; multiple machining functions on a single part;, 'job explorer' and full compatibility with Microsoft Vista. The 'job explorer' feature optimizes LVD's 'project tree' principle of storing processing data related to the piece part by allowing the simplified organization of 'job' data. Structured organization, searching, and moving of part related data within the technology database is all made easy by 'job explorer'.
CADMAN-L 3D incorporates fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual nesting and optimizes cutting and machine parameters to maximize sheet utilization for laser cutting systems.
