Nesting

This system provides a perfect combination of automatic, semi-automatic, and manual nesting, which provides great flexibility and optimum performance. The combination of automatic nesting, along with manual nesting functions like copy, moving, and rotating, proves to be a very powerful tool.

Lantek Expert Cut automatic nesting optimizes part arrangement on the metal sheet or plate for maximum utilization of parts and remnants.

Lantek Expert Cut automatically detects remnants in the warehouse and prioritizes their use prior to using a new sheet.

Technology

Lantek Expert Cut allows tables to be configured via material/thickness to define separation between parts and lead-ins/lead-outs for different types of contours and dependent on material/thickness and cutting quality. It is possible to common cut between different parts or limit to pairs of parts with micro-joints and pre-cuts. The system detects any errors in the design and machining and is completely automated.

All Lantek Expert Cut options are included in a single program. Within the same program and environment, the user can: design or import a part, consult the sheet warehouse, execute cutting sequences, generate CNC programs, and calculate time and cost.

Nesting

Lantek Expert Punch offers automatic and manual nesting with great flexibility and optimum performance. The combination of automatic nesting, along with manual nesting functions such as grid copying, moving, and rotating, proves to be a very powerful tool.

Lantek Expert Punch automatic nesting optimizes part arrangement on the sheet, offering different options for common punching on regular and irregular parts.

Automatic Punching

The machining of geometry in Lantek Expert Punch is totally automatic in accordance with the parameters that are configured by the user and in consideration of the machine limitations.

Lantek Expert Punch stands out among competitors because of the functions it gives users for carrying out common punching on regular and irregular parts. This system manages the sheet reposition automatically, depending on different strategies chosen by the user. The modify option provided by Lantek allows the user to easily change machining order and sequence, micro-joints, punches, and more.

The user may personalize, in an easy way, the machining of specific parts by means of machining macros for specific geometry.

Component Removal

(Manual and Automatic)

Lantek Expert Punch controls all possible ways of removing parts from the sheet automatically. This includes: micro-joints, work chutes, machine stop, part picking systems, and integrated angle shear.

Technical Characteristics

Lantek Expert Punch options are fully integrated into one program. Lantek Expert is fully integrated with Lantek Integra, an ERP which offers different CAD/CAM/ERP solutions for the sheet metal and fabrication sector. Additionally, Lantek Expert is designed to connect to external ERP systems.

Added Technologies

(Shearing & Cutting)

Lantek Expert Punch supports both shearing and combination machines with a laser/plasma cutting head. Shearing and laser cutting are managed automatically and very easy to use.

Lantek Expert QUATTRO

Software system specially designed for shear machines and optimized for nesting rectangular parts.

Technical characteristics

  • This system allows high production levels to be achieved with substantial savings on materials.
  • It´s a highly useful tool for calculating the material that will be needed for the production run, and is thus of incalculable value for the supply departments.
  • Automatic optimization of fabrication orders in multiple sheets. Lantek Expert Quattro minimizes the required number of different sheet formats.
  • Final results are shown on the screen and printed out: printout of nests, parts list, used sheets list.
  • Results can be modified interacting with different configurable parameters according to the customer´s way of work.
  • Sheet stock management, control of actual sheet stocks and automatic update of the stock whenever sheets are used by the system.
  • Interface to import parts from other system (i.e. DXF) and even from MRP programs (optional).

Nesting

Maximum shearing length control, allows to configure the nesting system not to generate any cuts longer than the configured maximum shear length.

Lantek Expert Quattro allows to reuse remnants from previous nestings. Thus, substantial savings on scrap material costs can be achieved. Label list output, parts can be labelled as they are being cut in order to identify them.

Possibility to define or force parts nesting orientation for a correct layout according to the material laminate direction.

Technology

Lantek Expert Quattro works with a public parts data base. Thus, users can easily access and store parts data (part name up to 40 characters, plan number, customer, material, thickness, quantity, delivery time, etc.).

Lantek supplies all the information related to the data bases. Thus, any end user, there is in no need for a deep technical knowledge, can easily develop his own customized listings.
