Finn-Power and Amada machines both come with very good nesting and
programming software. Our Finn-Power laser/punch machine uses
NCexpress software. For our Mitsubishi lasers we use NCell/Accufab
software. Our old Centrum turret, and before that Weideman and
Strippit turrets, were programmed using Fabriwin.
Ncell is good, NCexpress is good. I wouldn't recommend Fabriwin, but
we haven't upgraded the software because we haven't been happy with it
for at least 7 years.
We've used Radan for ~10 years. Three Amada Turrets (345, 357, 3510) and
three Mazak lasers (NTX-48 1K, 1.5K, and STX-510 4K.)
We also have MetalSoft/AP100US and SMP. (looked at ProE's post package
and had to chuckle... *g*)
MetalSoft is fine for beginners. SMP interface is a bit primitive. Does
a nice job with 3D wireframes for those who use 'em.
Radan gets my vote. Not embedded (yet) but they do have a module to work
direct with SW files.
