We have several methods of ensuring your part corners cut cleanly. Depending on what works best with your particular laser, we can add dwells to corners, or even automatically segment the toolpath as we approach and exit a corner and change the cut conditions as needed to ensure the corner cuts as cleanly as possible. It is also possible to automatically add small radii (fillets) to corners.
The Automatic Fillet Insertion feature allows you to specify the fillet radius, required angle change, and whether or not to insert the fillets on concave and/or convex corners. Furthermore, you can control these settings on a per-material basis.
Our Cross-Hair Destruction feature can automatically add extra cuts inside cutouts to ensure all scrap pieces are below a particular dimension.
We can automatically make vertical and/or horizontal cuts in the skeleton at set increments. Furthermore, we can make the cuts before, during, or after the parts are cut.
Our Irregular Material Nesting feature allows you to import irregular-shaped materials that can be nested on. AxiomVE™ will nest inside the irregular shape and even nest around existing holes.
Turret Punch and Routing
Our "Duplicate Router Path Generation" feature will automatically generate the duplicate paths. Per material, you can specify the offset distance for the extra pass and whether or not to add duplicate paths to internal paths, external paths, or both.
Yes we can! AxiomVE has the ability to common punch same-side, equal-length, or completely included sides of parts automatically. You can set VE to common punch the way you want it to globally for all parts or on a part-by-part basis.
You can set up Preferred Tool Lists which are subsets of your standard tool list. When we program your parts automatically, we will use your Preferred Tool List wherever possible. Additional tools will only be used if absolutely necessary. We have a proprietary way to minimize the number of tool changes which greatly reduces setup cost and increases production time.
Yes we do! We have an Auto-Edge Start feature that can greatly reduce the number of pierces by edge-starting external toolpaths on the sheet edge and in the kerf of previously cut parts. We also have advanced automatic part bridging.
You can put a "grain line" on your plies that will be automatically recognized by Optimation®. We will orient these plies such that the grain line will always run along the long dimension of your material. Furthermore, you can specify "required quantities". When you order your parts, you can order by part number and we will automatically find all the plies associated with a particular part name and then multiply your part order quantity by the "required quantity" of plies to insure you get the needed quantity of each ply required for each part.
We provide a large variety of information about the nests that have been processed, including order status, material utilization and efficiency, and part areas. Custom reports can be returned to your systems for inventory management, part costing, and labor reporting to name a few.
AxiomVE can automatically consider all available sheet sizes and choose the best size based on the parts on order.
You can use the software to automatically nest large quantities of your parts on different sheet sizes and provide you with statistical information to help you decide which sheet size is the most economical for your particular mix of parts.
Our Sub-Assembly Nest feature allows you to interactively place parts you want nested together and save them as a Sub-Assembly Nest (SAN). From then on, AxiomVE will automatically recognize when those same parts are on order and will nest the SAN of those parts automatically. This feature gives you the benefits of "static nests" in a dynamic nesting environment without the typical drawbacks of static nesting.
