Advanced Robotic Technology
has released a new, re-engineered version of its in-house developed CAM package, ART ToolShop 2.0.
It is able to communicate with MRP software, can be fully integrated in existing processes and manages all necessary data such as CAD drawings, parts libraries or customer data.
A nesting function operates to automatically arrange the required number of individual parts to be created on sheets or plates of stock material, while multiple users can use the software at the same time.
The software now features a full remote material library on the company network that allows the entry of sheet and plate stock levels, which are automatically subtracted when a nest is created on that sheet.
Its post processor can be used with different machines, brands and processes including plasma cutters, routers or water jets
Other features include fills; diamond cut toolpaths, 3D-world environment, label printing, layering, and node editing and cut ordering, among others.
