Lantek representatives will be at Fabtech 2022’s booth B6332, ready to discuss the latest sheet metal cutting solutions with attendees. | Lantek Expert is a premier 2D CAD/CAM nesting program created to optimize every phase of the sheet metal manufacturing process.
(MASON, OH – November 2022) - Sheet metal Industry leader Lantek will showcase its latest CAD/CAM and MES/ERP solutions at Fabtech 2022, November 8-10 in Atlanta, Georgia in Booth B6332 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Fabtech is North America’s largest metalworking event and a hub for the latest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing developments. As the global leader in sheet metal manufacturing solutions, Lantek will demonstrate the newest features of its proven Lantek Expert 2D CAD/CAM nesting system.
Fully integrated with the Lantek Integra ERP system, Lantek Expert is a 2D CAD/CAM nesting system that provides users with a litany of supportive features, such as a Parametric Parts Library, an Open Database for streamlined information management, and a Floating License option to allow multiple users access. Expert’s intelligent import and export functions allow linking to the most common CAD systems in today’s industry (DXF, DWG, IGES, DSTV, etc.).
The nesting function within Lantek Expert products maps out part arrangements on metal sheets to use the maximum amount of material available and to manufacture the most parts possible. There are also semi-automatic and manual options. Experteven tracks remnants and prioritizes their use before new sheets, extending material life and reducing waste. Before cutting begins, the system checks the design and manufacturing code for any errors and automatically flags or fixes them.
“Lantek Expert Cut’s CAM tools also include Nesting, which efficiently lays the parts on sheets for better Sheet Utilization,” noted Anupam Chakraborty, Commercial Director, Lantek Sheetmetal Solutions U.S.A.
Lantek Expertfeatures several tools for specific applications. Expert Cut is designed to ensure seamless, efficient programming of CNC oxy-cut, plasma, laser, and waterjet sheet metal cutting machines. Itprovides its own CAD tools specially crafted for creating 2D parts Similar to its cutting counterpart, Expert Punch generates code to direct CNC punching machines in drilling, threading, stamping, punch forming, embossing, and rolling. It also supports shearing and combination machines.
In order to eliminate the guesswork in programming for HVAC ductwork, Expert Duct, offers a substantial parametric figure library containing the most common duct shapes, all of which follow DIN and SMACNA regulations. Ductallows the definition of the type of neutral axis with which to make calculations, the type of joints used for the parts, the number of sections, the type of engraving for cutting machines, the seams and connections, and the insulators.
Every solution in the Lantek Expert family has been specially designed and fine-tuned to be the absolute best tool for its application. Visit Booth B6332 at Fabtech or www. https://www.lantek.com/us.
