Cadman software v8.7Click image to enlarge

LVD has released Cadman v8.7, the latest update of its software suite.

The new update introduces several key features, including the ability to integrate foreign operations such as tapping, chamfering, and painting, as well as updates for Cadman-Job (Manufacturing Execution System), Cadman-SDI (Smart Drawing Importer), Cadman-P (punching), Cadman-L (laser cutting), Cadman-B (bending) and Touch-i4 (sort and validate).
The latest version of Cadman is able to integrate foreign operations—defined as non-core and secondary operations, including tapping, deburring, and grinding. This update helps enhance the sheet metal fabrication process flow by allowing Cadman to control, monitor and log an order from raw material to finished part. Foreign operations are now visible in the Cadman-Job overview screen, and can be tracked and traced in the production process for real-time transparency. Using a single system (Cadman) keeps the user interface consistent and helps improve process efficiency.

Cadman v8.7 also provides a real-time interface between ERP and sheet metal production. The ERP system transfers work orders to Cadman-Job for processing. In turn, Cadman-JOB provides ERP with a real-time order status. The order’s progress in the production journey can be tracked in both systems. The data gathered can be analyzed by the user to implement process improvements.

Cadman v8.7 can now manage the complete sheet metal production process without the need for an ERP system. Work orders can be created within Cadman-SDI for transfer to Cadman-Job.
