AP100US Value Proposition
AP100US utilizes a built-in 2D CAD system with sheet metal specific logic and direct integration with best-of-class 3D Solid Modeling packages. AP100US natively supports and interfaces with all industry-standard file formats, ensuring that you will be able to meet your client’s requirements.
AP100US is compatible across all makes and models of both punching and cutting machines, whether new or old. AP100US eliminates time-consuming programming processes with Automatic Tool selection, sheet layout and sequence optimization. Cutting attributes, conditions, lead-ins and lead-outs are also automatic. AP100US will generate programming code faster and more efficiently for all of your punching, cutting and combination machines. You can optimize material utilization with our optional IntelliNEST Nesting and Scheduling module. With the optional FabriBEND module, you can simulate the bending process, reducing the need for costly and time consuming prototypes.
- AP100US will streamline your design to manufacturing processes, maximizing the performance, productivity and profitability of your fabrication operations, and give you the maximum flexibility in hiring and minimum training of your personnel.
- Using machine specific direct drivers, AP100US produces NC-code for virtually all machines 30% faster and up to 200% shorter than other leading CAD/CAM solutions
- Compatible across all makes and models of both punching and cutting machines, AP100US shortens design and programming time, streamlining the design to manufacturing process.
- You can match software functionality and cost to a machine’s capability, maximizing your return on initial investment
- The Sheet Wizard module features true shape, single sheet nesting that will automatically nest, check for errors and create NC code and Reports.
- The Job Wizard is a powerful module that combines nesting, job scheduling and remnant tracking and eliminates the need to purchasing third-party nesting systems.
