These include the automatic transfer of Inventor assemblies into e2i, Radanís estimating to invoice manufacturing software system, and new developments that provide precise material costing information in e2i, direct from component layouts held in Radnest. Increased collaboration with Autodesk reflects Radanís ability to closely integrate design and production processes, enabling users to simplify the way they design their products and drive them through to manufacture with reduced lead times and costs.

Radan will also be reinforcing its Ďtotal solutionsí concept through demonstrations of new offline programming capabilities in its Radbend CNC software; developments in enhanced common line cutting in Radprofile; and the launch of a series of new productivity tools in both its Radpunch and Radprofile applications. In addition, the company is running a promotional offer to supply a high specification laptop computer free with every Radan system order taken at the show. Further Radan developments to include the ability to define, store and retrieve tooling templates that specify the required tool blow combinations to be used whenever particular geometry is programmed. This is backed by new heat avoidance options for all types of profiling machines and improved parts removal and unloading capabilities. Support for ACIS 14 allows direct importation of latest ACIS 3D models. In addition, native Autodesk Inventor files can be transferred directly into the system, along with an extended range of popular 3D file formats, including Parasolid, CATIA V4 and V5, SolidWorks, Unigraphics, SolidEdge, VDA-FS and Pro/E. Upgrades to Radanís software user interface and working environment include enhancements to auto-dimensioning, easier set up sheet and nesting report generation, and more effective DNC flow control. Furthermore, Radanís support for Visual Basic for Applications provides simplified handling of macros, improves integration with third party software, and enables users to easily customise their working environments to individual requirements.
