Equipped with the latest state of the art CAD/CAM technology we are able to accept both SAT and IGES files for direct transfer to both the CNC punch and press brake thus eliminating the requirement for expensive drafting and manufacturing files.
Direct manufacture from SAT and IGES files also allows for rapid production of prototype components, design modifications on the fly and a streamlined manufacturing process. Other benefits include:
Based on LVD technology we use the CADMAN-B 3D suite of tools. The information below details the process and will hopefully help you understand how much time you can save.
When we receive a file the first thing we need to do is unfold the item for punching. This is a very straight forward process which is demonstrated below:
Once the flat form has been punched on the CNC punch press it is then moved to the CNC brake press. The CAM file is automatically generated at our CAD station and accessed by the brake press across the network:
A key aspect of this software is its ability to generate full working reports for a variety of purposes. Click here to see the production report for this job.
After the component is formed it is welded, cleaned, powder coated and silk screened.
