PEPS for 2-axis laser cutting, waterjet cutting, plasma cutting and punching/nibbling

The PEPS CAD/CAM software offers you effective NC programme creation for 2D sheet metal processing. Special emphasis is placed on a very high degree of automation when programming with the PEPS CAD/CAM software. The user can import CAD files from the existing CAD system or a customer’s CAD/CAM system into PEPS. If necessary, the CAD data can then be cleaned up using the repair functions available in PEPS. The fully automatic nesting module ensures optimal material utilisation. This contributes to immediate cost savings due to less waste.

Using predefined technologies and the associated parameters, the expert system integrated into the PEPS CAD/CAM system ensures fully automatic machining. The use of the PEPS Sheet Metal Processing module enables NC programme creation and machining simulation for machines from different manufacturers, including integrated order management. The possibility of setting predefined priorities in PEPS ensures that urgently needed parts are machined first despite full automation.

PEPS cluster nesting & random shape nesting

The semi-automatic or fully automatic nesting of individual parts on sheet metal panels is made possible by PEPS Cluster Nesting. The semi-automatic nesting supports the user with many functions to implement the interactive nesting of parts. With the automatic PEPS nesting, individual parts are placed on the sheet metal panel depending on various parameters. In order to achieve optimum material utilisation with as little waste as possible, the sheet sizes, the permitted angular steps for the rotation of the parts and also the distances between the parts can be output. The definition of filler parts enables efficient programming.
