Without interrupting production, almaCAM Bend enables remote off-line programming of a wide variety of CNC press brakes.
Using powerful, realistic and full 3D simulation tools, the application defines bend sequence, tool setup, and gauge positioning automatically, rapidly and reliably while maintaining safe operation.
By automating the manufacturing process, almaCAM Bend reduces production cycle time and improves productivity.
Combining advanced and customizable features, almaCAM Bend automates the complete bending process including bending sequence, tool selection and positioining, back-gauge position, and program generation.
From the model of the part designed in Unfold, the complete 3D simulation of the bending process allows to define every step of the press brake cycle during which the software verifies target accessibility and collision risk.
almaCAM Bend includes options such as crushed folds, folding aid, angle measurement function and provides a 3D-display on the CNC when the machine allows it.
From the 3D model unfolded in Unfold, the complete 3D simulation of the press-brake production cycle allows defining the entire folding sequence and checking step by step the precision of the instruction programs in terms of collision, accessibility and manipulation.
Thanks to the combination of automatic and manual functions that allow interactively modifying all the programming parameters, almaCAM Bend is an intuitive and easy-to-use tool.
The final purpose of almaCAM Bend is the CNC program generation using the embedded post-processors. All the data generated by almaCAM Bend can be collected to generate customized and detailed production reports.
