New CAD software “makes it easy” to fabricate

Share This Post

High performance software is fundamental to modern sheet metal processing.

BySoft 7 is a robust CAD/CAM software package that supports both 2D and 3D CAD and provides the user with an extensive array of process scheduling and monitoring functions. According to Bob St. Aubin, president of Bystronic Inc., “BySoft 7 is not simply an update. Rather, it is a completely new generation of design and manufacturing software generation, with a wide range of new functions that offer a host of possibilities. We market BySoft 7 with the slogan ‘Make it easy’, and users will find that it delivers fully on this promise.”

BySoft 7 incorporates the latest version of SolidWorks, one of the industry’s most popular and respected 2D and 3D CAD packages. Users can quickly and easily design custom parts, and input existing drawing and models for editing and processing.

On the CAM side, BySoft 7 introduces a variety of innovations that improve and simplify the manufacturing process. Operators have the ability to choose either spread or compressed nesting. Spread nesting increases the distance between nested parts for improved process reliability, while compressed nesting minimizes the safety distance to increase the number of parts per sheet and minimize wasted material. Among the extensive list of other innovative features are optimized common cut, pre-piercing of selected contours, and automatic scanning.

BySoft 7 lives up to its ‘Make it easy’ claim in two ways. First, BySoft 7 employs a highly intuitively structure that enables first-time users to begin working with the software quickly and easily. Secondly, BySoft 7 simplifies processes within the factory with advanced capabilities for nesting parts, creating cutting plans, generating bending programs, simulating bending sequences, and more. All operations take place automatically, on the basis of highly reliable data. Optimal cutting plans and bending programs can be generated at the push of a button, with the correct cutting technology automatically set and the bending process is automatically simulated and monitored.

BySoft 7 consists of four modules: Sheet Processing, Tube Processing, Bending, and Plant Manager. Plant Manager is a unique operational tool that both plans and monitors manufacturing processes, including all laser and waterjet cutting operations. Moreover, Plant Manager compiles all relevant machine and production data and makes it continuously available to the operator, providing maximum transparency for both sheet and tube processing.
