CAMMAN is an easy-to-use data management system for the administration of NC programs, fixture plates and CAD data including SAP and ERP interfaces. The CAMMAN NC program management gives you easy access to existing data files and allows the input of extensive additional information, e.g. drawing number, order number, project number, version number, client, comment, date, programmer, machine as well as security confirmations for DNC Systems. The file selection is supported by an integrated 3D graphic viewer. By using the NC program, fixture plate and drawing management, the designer, the programmer and the machine operator share the same database, thus avoiding confusion and mistakes.
Individual adaptations and the connection to already existing databases are possible with CAMMAN.
From version 6.0 onwards, the CAD and NC program management CAMMAN will offer an update check of CAD data. To make sure that the generated NC programs are based on current CAD data, they will be checked for their up-to-dateness every time a PEPS file is opened. If the data have been modified in the meantime, a message will appear. PEPS visually displays the changes in the relevant part. Thanks to the fully automatic Feature Recognition WIRE-Expert, possible changes can be transferred quickly and correctly to the current program.
The Gear Module is used to calculate involute gears. The involute can be manipulated by entering a profile shift, the roller distance, testing mass across teeth, tip and root diameter as well as tip and root radii. Additionally, the Gear Module provides all the data and dimensions for machining and inspecting the gear.
Measurement cycles enable the exact calculation of the position of a workpiece before the part is machined. The control of measurement cycles via the NC program increases the accuracy of the parts and is fundamentally important in conjunction with handling systems.
The SolidElectrode module is used for the creation of electrodes as well as for machining simulations with collision check. In conjunction with the corresponding postprocessor, it enables the creation of NC programs for vertical eroding machines.
Job Manager in connection with automatic Nesting
The JOBMAN Job Manager creates nesting orders fully automatically. Parts of the same material and thickness are selected by JOBMAN and transferred to the Random Shape Nesting module. The parts to be machined are automatically selected from various orders and then nested on the sheet. With the JOBMAN Job Manager it is guaranteed that all parts of an order are made out of the correct material at the right time.
Safe data transfer between the server and the machine, including recharging.
Interfaces to all ERP/PPS systems, e.g. SAP, 3R Sigma, Zwicker, Schubert etc., are optionally available for CAMMAN and JOBMAN.
