Automatic programming for press-brakes
Working from 3D models designed with Metacam’s 3D modeler, or imported from other packages, Metabend can automatically assign punches and dies, position back-gauges, and compute an optimal bend sequence.
The interactive graphical tools allow you to customize bend setups, drag and drop back-gauges to different locations and re-sequence the bend operations.
The powerful bend overview window shows you the status of the entire press-brake operation at a single glance, and allows centralized control over tooling, gauging and sequencing. You can generate custom setup sheets from the bend module, showing step-by-step thumbnails of bend operation, tool lists and mount diagrams.
- The bend modules simulation system provides detailed, precise and configurable simulation of the entire press-brake operation. Back gauge movement, ram stroke, part insertion and retraction are all animated.
- A real-time collision detection system warns you of all potential collisions, while controls allow you to turn various parts of the machine display on or off.
