METALIX CAD / CAM SHEETMETAL SOLUTION

Full Software Suite for Multiple Machine Programming

Metalix enables seamless integration of all Accurl Sheetmetal machines into 1 software suite, making programming simple and efficient.

ERP/MES connection

It is easy to get the ERP/MES order for Accurl machines

All ERP/MES system can export the CSV file, just include the dxf file name, material, Qty and thickness or others

ACCURL Press Brake-Punch & Laser Cut

It is easy programing from iBend to iPunch/iCut

ACCURL Punch/Laser unfold From iBend

ACCURL. CLAIM FOR 3D Connection -CADLink

The CADLink is an optional add-on that provides 3D CAD integration with iPunch/iCut/iBend, it transfers part or
assemblies directly from such as Solid Edge®, SOLIDWORKS®, Autodesk® Inventor®, and PTC Creo®
Customer will fid the buttom in their original 3D CAD integration as Solid Edge®, SOLIDWORKS®, Autodesk® Inventor® ”

CADLink will batch process the assembly 3D file to check list all of parts.

CADLink will automatically export “SheetMetal” parts and not export others.

Accurl’s iPunch/iCut will get the unfold file so direct to generate the NC for Punch/Laser/Press Brake.
