You can see from our Radan® web page data that we have all the software CAD/CAM tools we need to efficiently and accurately communicate with you when quoting for and working on your specific design. Unfolding an accurate developed sheet metal blank, CNC punch tooling and nest optimisation is only half the story. Where necessary, we also need to be able to calculate the most efficient CNC bend sequence to fold up your sheet metal components.
TruTops Bend software can take the developed sheet metal blank directly from Radan® and automatically calculate the best bending sequence and determine the right tool combination required to bend your component. The bending process is simulated within the software and 3D animations highlight possible areas of collision between the CNC press brake, its tooling and the sheet metal part itself. All these issues can be addressed before the design is allowed to reach production saving machine time and possible scrap product.
When there are a number of parts to create a sheet metal fabricated assembly TruTops can calculate the best series of tooling programs needed to produce all the parts with the least tooling changes. With large complex assemblies this can be left to run overnight if needed and the solution is then ready to be run in the morning.
All the CNC bending features that are available on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes is fully supported by our Trumpf TruTops CNC bending software and is linked directly to each machine on our company network.
For more information on some of our standard CNC press brake tooling used to produce the most common bend styles please take a look at our design data pages “CNC bend tooling”. We have included a dimensioned guide to the minimum bend sizes for our standard tooling. Special sizes of tooling can be sourced for your specific needs and we often have smaller sections of tooling not mentioned here so please call us for more details if your sheet metal design feature is not included.
