AXYZ launches PANELBuilder 16



Jan. 5, 2016 – AXYZ International says the new version of its PANELBuilder software, and optional PanelPrinter device, is an “advanced, easy-to-use solution with a custom machine design that enables customers to process ACM materials faster, more consistently and at a lower cost than ever before.”

With PANELBuilder 16, the company says customers can design, nest and program machine panels in one operation. “Customers need a mechanism to create the files for the machine, the tooling needed to cut the panel and the machine to do it on. To make all that come together and work effectively and efficiently, we provide the training, the support and the complete solution to give customers what they actually need,” said Noel Archie, product manager. The system includes a host of features, such as: one-click setup for pendulum processing; upgraded rectangular nesting algorithm; multi-panel DXF import; and Windows 10 support. Meanwhile, AXYZ describes PanelPrinter as the “fastest and most accurate” method of printing part identification data onto individual parts. The device automatically prints panel name, cutting date, the name of the job and a bar code, which can be used for transmitting additional information to the system.
