Alma has developed specific expertise in 2.5 axis machining of wood and soft flat materials. Our almaCAM Routing software is a high added value solution for companies producing on a small or medium scale, who have major nesting needs. Moreover it supports the technical constraints of a large variety of CNC routing machines and can generate programs for any of these machines.
Among our customers we have not only manufacturers of furniture and sofas, manufacturers of yachts, caravans and recreational vehicles, but also manufacturers of outdoor games and kitchen units.
Industrial IT Director, Beneteau Group
“The Beneteau Group chose Alma as early as 1990 to optimize the cutting of the wood parts used for the partitions and inside arrangements of boats. In order to homogenize our production means, today we use act/cut to program the routing machines of 4 production sites in France and the United-States. The software manages a great diversity of machines and processes: one-sided or double-sided routing of nested parts, edge machining and specific operations on single parts, routing one panel after the other or routing of stacked panels, machining on both sides of the panel… In 2009 the introduction of the module that enables us to directly and automatically assign machining to 3D CAD parts has significantly simplified the preparation and assignment of the parts to the machines.”
