Software Division *Low repeatability of production ________________ ________________ What is “Dr.ABE_Blank” Sheet Metal companies need to support high-mix low-volume production today. And customers want parts for lower cost. The company needs to make a continuous effort to up-date production capabilities. So Amada developed a new blanking CAM system that we called “Dr.ABE_Blank” - “High speed & easy operation CAM” “Dr.ABE_Blank” has many automatic functions for the CAM process. CAM data is created in a very short time. It also has intelligent functions to nest parts for your production by using your own parameter settings. This high-speed & easy operation functionality provides high level support to reduce your set-up time and increase your nesting efficiency. This is possible as you can achieve reduced material usage and operation time. “Dr.ABE_Blank” - Achieve increased production and profit. JIT Production You can make blanking data easily by simply entering the part quantities from your production schedule. You can respond quicker to your customers requirements for urgent or 1-off parts. You can use CAD data only to make blanking nesting data if required. High Speed & Easy Operation CAM System Dr.ABE_Blank “Dr.ABE_Blank” can quickly make blank data Cost down You can achieve increased material usage due to the new nesting algorithm. So you can reduce your material costs. Reduce programming time. You can reduce the problems when the programmer is absent, especially when new production is required. You will increase production efficiency, meaning you can reduce running costs. Increase Production Software Division Short delivery time You can reduce programming time, because Dr.ABE_Blank does not need to create part data before nesting. Dr.ABE_Blank can make blank schedules, reducing set-up time for your production. This is due to increased productivity benefits. The result of blanking data already considers short lead-time production, meaning you can reduce production time compared with before. You can now satisfy your customers requirements for fast turn-around and delivery due to short programming and production times. ________________ ________________ CSV File Output for Production Planning Systems & Link Module with CAD Software Production Planning Software Setting of product plan screen Dr.ABE_Blank Dr.ABE_Blank can get the production plan from your management Dr.ABE_Blank can make nesting using unfold data software using CSV file import. from SDD and also DXF/DWG data from CAD systems. It can operation automatically without input from the operator. Dr.ABE_Blank can import a CSV file from your production planning software. Dr.ABE_Blank can make nesting by unfolding data from SDD (Sheetmetal Digital on Demand : Amada Database) It is quick and easy to build the nesting schedules using the part data previously created. It can also make nesting using DXF/DWG data from CAD systems. You can get product plan data (Parts name, Quantity) via CSV file import from your production planning system. This can drastically reduce the programming time. File of Production plan (CSV) File of Production plan (CSV) ASIS100PCL・AP100 CAD system DXF/DWG Dr.ABE_Blank can automatically ‘clean-up’ the CAD data. You can call DXF/DWG data using the simple interface. SDD Dr.ABE_Blank Software Division ________________ ________________ Nesting Function of Dr.ABE_Blank Dr.ABE_Blank can achieve a 7.5% increase in nesting efficiency. You can enter your company’s production experience via parameters, ensuring all your requests and requirements are met. Dr.ABE_Blank has the latest nesting algorithm. It can creatively use “Common cutting” “Multiple Nesting” “Skelton Nesting” “Multiple Parts in Parts” “ Graphic Nesting” Common Cutting Graphic Nesting Increase efficiency and reduce You production time using common cutting. Nesting Logic 1 Nesting Logic 2 can get high nesting efficiency with Graphic Nesting logic. *Joints for round shapes is completed using parameters. Multiple Nesting Skelton Nesting Processing mistakes can be avoided, ensuring small parts are nested in the scrap of large parts. Multiple Parts in Parts Dr.ABE_Blank can make multiple parts in parts, increasing the nesting efficiency. You can nest parts in the skeleton from a previous job, reducing your material costs. *Skelton nesting is use for laser cutting. Setting Parameter Automatic Material Selection *You can set nesting type (Rectangular or Free shape) *You can set origin point and nesting direction. *You can set allocation type. *You can set the material selection to automatic and also define how scrap should be processed. Software Division ________________ ________________ Information Flow For Data Creation and Print-out Job Sheet パーツの追加 You can add parts to the nested sheets.

But Dr.ABE_Blank-Punch can accomplish these requirements due to the latest parameter logic it uses. Success ratio of automatic tool assignment Dr.ABE_Blank-Punch 93% AP100CAM 45% Continuous punch *Amada has used real customer data to compare Dr.ABE_Blank and AP100CAM. These parts were a batch of 500 using 5 different machine processes. Cannot continuous punch Special Hole Unsuccessful for special hole Unsuccessful for special hole Unsuccessful for special hole Cannot assign bottom of ‘V’ Tool Management & Punching Sequence Turret Layout You can set all attributes for each of your tools. Tooling groups, Sequence, Direction, M code, etc. M code can also be set in each material and thickness. Turret layouts can be quickly and easily configured using ‘drag-and-drop’ functions. Setting Tool Group Parameters Tool Priority Settings Punch Tool Parameter Assignment You can set “Line types” “ Tool overlap distance” “Notch & Slit Parameters” “Joints by special tools” “Countering” “Slit” “V notch” “Deberring” Set pattern Each shape can have specific tooling patterns assigned to them. Dr.ABE_Blank can also assign tooling to special shapes. Special tools can also be used on the profile of the outer. Tool s can be grouped together for better punch sequencing. All down form tooling can be contained in a single group. You can set the tool priorities by “Shape” “size” etc. Software Division ________________ ________________ Dr.ABE_Blank- Laser (Laser CAM) Automatically change the cutting approach Dr.ABE_Blank searches for the shortest cutting approach automatically to minimise idle movements and gain higher production efficiencies. Automatic Automatic avoidance avoidance of of hole hole Dr.ABE_Blank can automatically avoid holes that are already cut. You can reduce scrap using this function. Dr.ABE_Blank creates high productivity laser cutting based on the latest nesting algorithm. Corner treatment You can make radius cuts on sharp corners without modifying the drawing. Cutting condition for common cutting High quality cutting can be maintained during common cutting because Dr.ABE_Blank can set different cutting conditions for crossover points. Cutting condition & NC data condition You can set cutting conditions for each machine, material, thickness, shape. This allows you to tailor Dr.ABE_Blank to your requirements. Optimisation Optimisation of cutting route of cutting route Common Cutting You can make common cutting to reduce cutting time, and also increase nesting efficiency. *There is no micro-joint assignment when using common cutting Automatically save remaining material or skeleton You can nesting new parts on remaining material or skeleton using the automatic save function (for laser machines). Optimisation of cutting route can reduce time for cutting Change microjoint position based on part nesting direction Dr.ABE_Blank can change microjoint positions based on the part nesting direction even if it is same part. Setting of lead-in and lead-out There are different patterns available for lead- in and lead-out. You can also set your own pattern.

This means you can use sheet metal unfolding functions before Dr.ABE_Blank. ■Duct ■2D CAD Unfolding ■Face attachment / extraction ■2D Flange ■Cross-Section ■3D Modification ■Orthographic View Amada proposes 3D modeling for sheet metal production SheetWorks for Unfold can import various 3D CAD models and unfold them automatically. It can also output data such as “Orthographic drawings” “Unfold drawings” and “Information for estimation” You can create a true sheet metal 3D model quickly, even it comes from a 2D CAD drawing. SheetWorks can also make non sheet metal parts. Another important SheetWorks function is to check the assembly before production. It can check for collisions between parts, holes positions near bend lines, etc. This means you can reduce scrap levels made by unfolding mistake.
