Radtube Drives Nukon REX Pipe Cutters

November 17, 2014 -- A new pipe cutting attachment for Nukon’s REX fibre laser machines is being driven by Radan Software’s specialist Radtube module.

The pipe cutting function increases the flexibility of REX machines. Nukon Development Manager Alper Tarkan says: “The new attachment provides an economical method of providing full pipe cutting functionality, increasing opportunities for manufacturers who incorporate it into their production.”

Radan, from Vero Software, already provided a full CAD/CAM solution for standard REX machines, and worked closely with Nukon engineers to create an integrated package which efficiently drives the new pipe cutting function.

Paul Monte, Radan Business Development Manager, says: “Having developed the functionality and post processor to drive this innovative solution on the Nukon machine, it not only provides the CNC code, but also gives full simulation of the processes, to eliminate error on screen, before any metal is cut.”

The innovation was unveiled at the Brno exhibition in the Czech Republic, and was also recently demonstrated at Maktek, Istanbul, and Euroblech in Hannover.

“It generated considerable interest at all three exhibitions, and a number of sales have already been made.” Paul Monte also says the co-operation extends the current partnership where Radan is supplied with Nukon laser machines as part of their overall sheet metal laser cutting solutions.  

The pipe cutting function is suitable for cutting and engraving a variety of metal pipes and tubes, for sectors such as advertising, crafts, decoration, lighting and other metal processing industries.

Radan’s Radtube is an industry leading laser CAD/CAM system for rotary and multi axis cutting machines, developed specifically for tube cutting and manipulation. The intuitive programming system allows tubes or sections to be parametrically defined from a library of standard shapes, allowing cutting apertures and profiles to be defined.

Radtube supplies a library of parametric tube shapes that simplify the creation of the tube material to be cut. If a suitable section does not exist, the ‘Freeform’ option is used to create the special shape section. Freeform shape tubes can even be created from one of the libraries of Radtube parametric shapes. If none of these standard shapes are suitable, the user simply draws the section centre line profile or outside / inside shape using the integrated CAD tools. All modelling in Radtube is done entirely in 3D.

Part of the Vero Software Group, Radan is a leading CAD/CAM solution for the sheet metal industry. Vero has direct offices in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, USA, Brazil, Netherlands, China, South Korea, Spain and India supplying products to more than 45 countries through its wholly owned subsidiaries and reseller network.

Vero is part of Hexagon (Nordic exchange: HEXA B), a leading global provider of design, measurement and visualisation technologies that enable customers to design, measure and position objects, and process and present data.
