AutoPOL Bend Simulator is a modern 3D software solution for off-line programming of press brakes.
Programming a press brake off-line gives many advantages regarding productivity and economy. The main areas where you benefit are:
-Drastic reduction of machine down time.
Instead of occupying the machine when programming on the controller, you produce parts while new programs are created on a PC.
-Reduced programming time.
Programming off-line does not only help you avoid down time, it is also faster.
-Quicker machine set-up.
With well documented and clear production reports, machine preparation and tool rigging is more efficent.
With extremely accurate flat pattern calculation, due to AutoPOLs unique methods, initial scrap parts are heavily reduced. Get the first piece right!!!
Thanks to off-line programming you can discover and avoid potential manufacturing problems before the part is taken into production. Finding out in “mid-production” costs a lot of money…
With smart and highly visual interface it is easy to create more efficent programs. More helpful back gauging, smart auto-sequencing and optimized set-ups are examples where AutoPOL can help you create programs with shorter cycle times
All of the above benefits are achieved through the use of advanced, but still easy to use, functionality built into the software. Throughout the whole process the user can get help selecting tools, calculating an optimal bend sequence, positioning back gauges, making efficent tool set-ups etc.
