Use of software applications in SaaS mode is a fundamental trend and its advantages for users are now clear for all to see. While the SaaS market has been driven by management applications, today industrial software is catching up fast. Alma has been a pioneer with its optimizing software components and is constantly investing in a SaaS offering adapted to suit its different customers.
Programming of robots with an off-line programming software can be up to 10 times faster than programming by teaching pendant. However, this approach has repercussions for the entire design and manufacturing process. So what are the requirements for successful integration of off-line programming? Here are the keys to a successful off-line programming project.
Thanks to a development strategy based on both software applications and software components, and on the strength of our web tool expertise, we are able to meet different types of quotes needs for industrial sheet metal companies.
If a machine tool manufacturer or reseller has decided to include a CAD/CAM software in their offering, what kind of questions should they ask themselves before working with an independent software vendor? Plus, what are the specific characteristics of Alma’s partnership approach?
Specialist in production systems that use coil, DIMECO launched a few year ago an innovative system allowing continuous laser cutting. This solution is controlled using Alma nesting software and has been adopted by companies in different sectors in several countries.
If you are intending to invest in a robotized welding cell, you may be considering whether it’s worthwhile investing also in an off-line programming software to control your new robot. OLP is more than just an alternative to conventional programming by teaching pendant. This solution has many advantages which in fact make it irreplaceable.
In many industrial sectors it is necessary to cut parallelepipedic parts from large blocks of material. For applications where the groups of parts to produce are particularly large, it is necessary or even mandatory to use a cutting optimization software.
In partnership with robotics integrators, in particular Daihen Varstroj in Slovenia, Alma has adapted its off-line programming software to robotized cutting of tubes and profiles. This is a niche market which requires a highly sophisticated hardware + software solution.
The quality of DXF or DWG geometries is a recurring problem when it comes to exploiting CAD files for CAM programming. Alma applicative software and web applications include advanced functions for automatic cleaning of DXF or DWG geometries.
1982 is the starting point not only for our long-standing collaboration with the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard, but also for deployment of our Cutting CAD/CAM software for shipbuilding right around the world.
