Osai offers its OpenCut 2D and 3D bevel laser cutting software designed for demanding production requirements. Designed to optimize startup, productivity and cutting quality, this system offers numerical controls that match the most common CAD systems on the market, enabling complete programming, the company says. The system is also suitable for plasma and oxy-fuel cutting.
The software is a complete modular and therefore customizable solution, with modules specifically designed for Osai’s OpenControl CNC, the multi-touch operator panel, drives and I/O systems controlled via EtherCAT or proprietary fieldbuses.
The HMI and CAM software has predefined icon libraries and automatic nesting of different profiles. Utilizing advanced software modules and hardware components, OpenCut is said to simplify installation, startup and time to market. The technological tables integrated in the software are made up of 10 piercing lines and 10 cutting lines for each material and thickness. Additionally, there are functions to export, import and delete every material in the table database. The technology table parameters are managed using G-code macros, customizable both by the machine builder and by the PLC.
The system includes graphic, multi-touch SW-oriented HMI with 2D and 3D graphics for program execution control, easy-to-customize machine logic designed for laser cutting machine operations, offset management compensation of bevel cutting parameters, 3D cutting head control, the newest version CNC OPENControl, drives connected via EtherCAT or proprietary fieldbuses, multi-tool heads management, and more.
