BySoft 7: New functions for creating offers and production planning

November 2013

 

Now BySoft 7 includes Cost Calculator, with which part costs can be calculated. In future, the user creates cost calculations for his parts to be produced in a fast and simple manner.

Cost Calculator – Simple calculation of part costs

Now BySoft 7 includes Cost Calculator, with which part costs can be calculated. In future, the user creates cost calculations for his parts to be produced in a fast and simple manner. He defines the desired process steps, materials and sheet thicknesses. Subsequently Cost Calculator generates authoritative part costs based on pre-defined cost rates. Then the user is able to use the calculations in order to draw up an offer. The data can be effortlessly exported for further processing in Excel tables.

PartID – Labelling cut parts

PartID is an additional new function in BySoft 7. PartID labels laser-cut parts with an identification code. This simplifies further processing during subsequent processes such as bending. The identification code is generated with BySoft 7 and laser-engraved on the part. At the pressbrake, the part is subsequently registered by a scanner unit and the desired bending program can be loaded immediately. The labelled production parts are clearly identifiable throughout complex processing procedures and mix-ups with similar parts can be ruled out.

PartID can be applied as a function within Bysoft 7 to the following laser cutting systems: Bystar, BySprint Pro, BySprint Fiber and ByAutonom. The pressbrakes must be equipped with ByVision Bending and an additional scanner unit.

Parts removal in Plant Manager

Plant Manager is a reliable module in BySoft 7. It plans and monitors laser and waterjet cutting processes. Parts removal is a new function of Plant Manager that provides visual support to the operator while unloading the cut parts at the shuttle table. All the parts that belong to a customer order can be color-coded on the cutting plan and are thereby clearly distinguishable from parts from other orders. In addition, the first and last cut part within a customer order can be labelled. Thereby the machine operator recognizes when an order begins and when it is completed. When the operator unloads finished parts from the shuttle table, he also has the option of marking them as "unloaded" on the screen. Thereby the operator can unload and sort his parts based on orders.
