Functional description of act/cut software for 2D cutting

Remote software operation

  • Support of all technological parameters and machine configurations
  • Launching order management : parts and formats are grouped according to material and thickness for nesting purposes
  • Manufacturing order and format stock management (Manager optional module)
  • Connection to production management and ERP systems (Manager optional module)

 

CAD import and 2D geometry creation

  • Import of sheet-metal parts from any CAD system, including neutral formats (DXF, IGES, DWG, DSTV, STEP) and native formats (Solid Edge®, SOLIDWORKS®, Catia V4/V5®, Inventor®, Creo/ProEngineer®, etc.)
  • 3D part import and unfolding (optional act/unfold module)
  • Advanced function for 2D geometry creation
  • Part measuring and listing

 

Allocation of machining attributes

  • Numerous functions linked to the cutting technology enabling an optimized planning of cutting operations
  • Allocation of cutting-technology specific features (bevel, lead-ins/outs, micro-junctions)
  • Automatic configuration of cutting conditions according to user-defined strategies

 

Automatic or interactive nesting  operations

  • Numerous nesting strategies either in full-automatic mode or in  full-intercative mode
  • Automatic anti-collision function
  • Automatic control of part positioning constraints (symmetry, rotation) and automatic management of nesting priorities
  • Nesting in multiple formats and sheets
  • Support of various technological requirements : multi-torch cutting (oxy-cutting) , common cut, positioning between (laser), etc.
  • Nesting in remnants or off-cuts

 

Tool path optimization 

  • Automatic calculation of tool paths respecting technological constraints (for example to avoid warping)
  • Interactive modification (lead-ins, cutting sequence, trajectory, etc.)
  • Simulation of tool path
  • Automatic calculation of off-sets in straight and beveled cut
  • Specific cutting functions: continuous cutting (to minimize lead-ins), common cut, skeleton cutting, programmable bevel management, control of marking etching and boring systems, speed control in water-jet cutting (accelerations or decelerations),  loop support, collision avoidance with parts already cut, etc.

 

ISO code generation

  • Advanced post-processor generator
  • Programming with or without sub-programs
  • Cycle time calculation
  • Printing of customizable workshop documents (PDF)

 

act/cut 2D optional modules

  • act/unfold: 3D import and unfolding of metal sheet parts
  • act/shape: library of shapes for boiler construction and ventilation
  • act/sign: letter and drawing transformation into cutting profiles
  • act/manager: cutting process management (manufacturing orders, stock, launching orders) and data import from/export to production management and ERP systems
