In today’s business world, it is no longer enough to develop new technologies and to convert them into industrial applications – companies will only benefit once these technologies have been successfully integrated into actual value chains. Even the best technology will only survive on the market on the strength of a practical, user-friendly implementation.
Therefore the Fraunhofer IPT is developing customized CAM modules for different laser material processing technologies. For this purpose, the in-house-developed »CAx Framework« is used, which utilizes several software modules to interlink different manufacturing processes and to integrate them into consistent, computer-supported process chains. With our work-flow-based programming strategy, users can design easy-to-operate process chains with maximum levels of flexibility.
These software modules can be seamlessly integrated into existing software systems, allowing operators to reduce their training expenses to a minimum. Since the software modules are linked to a process and technology database, their operation requires no specific skills or experience in laser technologies..
- Development of software solutions for the calculation of processing data and the design of complex tool path solutions in laser materials processing
- Support for the implementation of the software in the client’s operation environment
- Software training and workshops
