Radcam Technologies offers Radan—a leading and powerful software developed by Vero software, UK that assists a programmer in transforming data from CAD to NC codes. It does sheet metal design, automatic high performance nesting, tooling and programming, costing, bending calculations and simulation, multi-axis laser and tube cutting laser programming. The tools in the software are customised exclusively for sheet metal with a very easy to understand user interface. Radan is capable of generating flat blank of a part with all the bending allowances and reliefs included. The software also allows importing of a range of file formats such as SAT, IGES, STEP, Para solids, etc. It is machine independent i.e it can generate NC codes for a wide range of machines such as Amada, Bystronic, LVD-Strippit, Mazak, Mitsubhishi, Trumph etc. Even though Radan appears to be a CAD/CAM software but it has the ability of production management making it the best solution for optimising the production, while saving on the reduced wastage and better reporting formats.
