TMP Mexico’s transition to Metalix cncKad and MBend
TMP from Mexico is a major sub-contractor for Carrier, delivering thousands of parts every day.
Metalix has deployed both cncKad+AutoNest and MBend at TMP.
For their Amada punching machine, a CSV file is read into AutoNest with a list of DXF part files. The parts are then automatically tooled
and nested using common cuts on the best available sheets.
For their Amada press brakes, a list of parts is automatically processed, and the best machine is chosen for the standard station setup, whenever possible.
Says William Perez, head of programming at TMP, in charge of both the punch and press brake programming:
“I am very pleased with the way cncKad software has helped me with the daily job.
In the past I used to work with more than one software at the same time, getting from each the things that others did not have available. Finally we got cncKad, which has all those features in one single solution, even things that other big and recognized companies told me that was practically impossible… cncKad did it. The quality of our programs was improved since we work with cncKad and the time required to do the job now is less than half, when you work with thousands of different parts every day this is very appreciated.
MBend software is just amazing, it helps to program the bending easier and quicker, reducing the amount of time required in the process, and improving the productivity like never before; with the new version you can automatically program several files at the same time, I am still thankful about it.
Has been always a pleasure to work with Metalix, their nesting and bending software was the best so far by themselves, then they did several customizations to fit even better our particular needs, and now they are perfect.
The team always able to help you and the response time for support or customizations just surprised me. We made suggestions about what we would like to see in the future versions, personally I expected to see that changes may be in a couple years and some of them considered by myself very hard to see or even impossible… they did it a couple of weeks.
I widely recommend their products and services. Try it and you will realize how much time and effort you could save if you met them before.”
