almaCAM Punch, a CAD/CAM punching software

An extremely effective CAD/CAM software for on-demand production of numerous parts requiring punching-nibbling.

almaCAM Punch’s added value lies above all in the software’s powerful automation features at every stage of programming: tool allocation, machining sequence, nesting, part evacuation, etc.

The built-in nesting module reduces material consumption while adapting perfectly to punching constraints (tools, work areas, clamps, etc.) almaCAM Punch manages all the loading/unloading peripherals. The software combines perfectly with the other products in the almaCAM range to control combined laser/punching machines and cutting machines that follow profiles.

The almaCAM environment provides completely secure and traceable management of manufacturing data. Adopting the “Industry 4.0” approach, almaCAM interfaces seamlessly with the company’s information system and can be easily connected to Production Management and ERP software amongst others. almaCAM provides workshop management tools, and a production statistics module.

Main advantages and benefits of almaCAM Punch

Automatic machining: tool allocation, nesting, optimization of machining sequences by managing part evacuation and generation of the NC program.

Common cutting of identical or non-identical parts, using different tools.

Preparation of the part in automatic “micro-junction” mode.

Automatic part nesting under or around clamps.

Management of multi-tools, special and deformation tools.

Automatic or manual management of any type of evacuation system.

Part machining preparation based on a pre-defined turret model.

“We decided to opt for the Alma solution, which was perfectly aligned with our strategy consisting in systematically optimizing flows, reducing manufacturing cycles and maximizing material gains. For a recent project, thanks to Alma’s nesting, the material requirement was reduced from 63 sheets to 53 compared to the previous software, a net material gain of 11%.”
