CADMAN-SIM

Robotic bending optimized

CADMAN-SIM makes automated bending easier, faster and more cost-effective. Offered as a plugin for CADMAN-B, the software elevates the efficiency of LVD’s bend CAM software to improve the efficiency of robot-based processing, providing fast collision-free robot path calculation and automatic calculation of the complete part handling for a more efficient “art to part” process.

  • CADMAN-B plugin
  • Makes smaller batch sizes viable for robotic bending
  • Provides virtual simulation of the complete part production
     

Highlights

No robot teaching

Programming for both the press brake and robot is fully automated, handled offline, with no need to teach the robot – so there’s no need for a highly skilled robot programmer.

Fast “art to part”

Prepare a part program in a maximum of 10 minutes and set up the robotic cell for production in a maximum of 10 minutes, including full 3D bending simulation. In a maximum of 20 minutes, the cell is ready to start bending. 

Intelligent programming

The software calculates the fastest path for the robot across the complete bending operation. It automatically accounts for all process parameters: determines the grip force to handle the part, calculates the robot speed, considers robot reachability, collision checks and path optimization. 

Advanced capability

CADMAN-SIM imports the bend solution from CADMAN-B and creates an optimized robot program based on the bend solution and part geometry.

3D simulation and process visualization

CAM 3D virtual production simulation provides a complete walk through of the robot and press brake functions to check and visually confirm the bending sequence before bending begins. Before a piece of metal is formed, the process is verified, avoiding costly mistakes and material waste.
