Machine data for controlling modern production equipment or circulation plants managed by central computers can be generated directly from the CAD program. This data is generated in Unitechnik or PXML format by default. These formats are supported by most modern production machines and have established themselves as the quasi unofficial standard for this area of the data interface.
The basic function of this interface is the machine file. This is a file associated with the prefabricated unit which contains a description of all data relevant to the unit (geometry, reinforcement incl. position, openings and built-in parts). These files are further processed directly by modern production equipment. Plotters, for example, use the information about the geometry and position of openings or built-in parts to plot this directly on a pallet. The same principle applies to laser projection systems, where these can, for example, also show the position of individual reinforcement rods.
Shuttering robots, robots for the automatic placement of reinforcements as well as mesh welding systems are further examples of production machinery that can be supplied with data directly from the CAD program. We naturally also offer interfaces to machines which are not compatible with this format (mainly older equipment). A number of different interface formats are already available here. If a format is not available, the necessary custom programming can be performed by our team.
