Shipbuilding & pleasure boats manufacturing

Alma has been active in the shipbuilding market for more than 30 years. Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique (now STX France) actively contributed to the development of Alma’s first nesting and programming software -  a software they have been using since the early 1980s. Since then, Alma has developed a unique and unmatched expertise in that sector and has already provided dozens of shipyards and off-shore platforms construction yards worldwide with its software products.

Alma act/cut software's key features for shipbuilding and marine industry:

  • A complete, craft-oriented solution for cutting machine programming (plasma, oxy-cutting, etc.).
  • Integration of all shipbuilding specific functions: bevel cutting management, symmetrical dual sheet cutting, management of the various marking and sanding processes, marking of alphanumerical texts, etc.
  • Integrated powerful optimization tools (nesting, tool path calculation).
  • A peerless, highly capable, nesting module (flexible, fast, efficient).
  • Full management of off-cut and remnant sheets.
  • Full automation capabilities.
  • Integration with CAD-PLM systems and more specifically with shipyard-dedicated solutions (Catia, SmartMarine, Tribon M3). It fully manages geometrical file extraction and part preparation before machining: removal of lower face markings, automatic marking of the bevels along the edges, automatic marking of part reference, repositioning of misplaced texts, etc.
  • Integration with ERP: management of parts to produce, sheet and remnant sheet management, automatic creation of launching orders according to the machines' characteristics, forwarding of management data regarding cutting operations.
  • Software organization similar to yard organization (working block by block, management of identical ships, naming conventions of NC files, etc.).
  • Pre-nesting option to optimize sheet purchase according to nesting results.
  • An open and customizable system (data import/export, workshop documents, etc.).
  • Possible integration of other cutting or machining processes (bar cutting, robot welding, etc.).
