Sheet Metal Processing

To achieve good use rate of materials, we apply the auto layout function in cncKad with AutoNest Pro. The results are always marvelous—the joints generated during the common cut avert any collision between laser cut heads and materials.

Punch + Cut

sheet metal processing cncKad punch and cut Parts processed with cncKad for punch + laser/plasma machines are automatically tooled and optimally nested.

AutoNest Pro gives the best nesting in the industry, while considering tooling and turrets and maximizing common cuts.

Punch + Shear

Shearing allows you to cut your sheet with scissors; i.e., with two blades positioned at a 90° angle. After cncKad processes your parts with internal shapes, chamfered entities, etc., you can shear your sheet:

  • Choose between single hit and long cut, with or without clamp reposition.
  • Shear horizontally or vertically, or allow cncKad to select the best option.
  • Determine the bin number for the scrap or part yourself, or allow cncKad to deposit the instances of your parts automatically in a bin.
