Plate Processing

In the early days of the CAMduct software, part of it was known as Profilemaster or PM2000. It included an environment called Opus for drawing new items and the ability to import dxf and NC files. All of these ‘older’ features still exist and can be leveraged for processing plate NC files from Advance Steel.

The processes tool inside Autodesk Fabrication CAMduct can be used to automate Plate Processing. Once configured for filters, machines, printers and materials the process of running nests, creating NC files, exporting fields for ERP and printing all sorts of reports/labels is executed with a single click.

The benefits of this automation are:

  • Time saving
  • Maximise material usage
  • Common line cutting
  • All of the jobs are done at once
  • The option of stock management of sheets and or standard items
