- Major performance improvements
Many of the calculation intense core functions of the AutoPOL kernel has been re-written and will see big performance improvements.
These improvements are achieved through optimizing algorithms and multi-threading, where all the CPU kernels are used more efficiently.
Improvement results are not linear and will vary from part to part, but for example the auto sequencing and tool set-up calculations, have shown results only requiring down to 20% of the time for certain parts.
- Forced Retract based on thickness
A new machine setting is implemented that forces the back gauges to always make a retract when the part is over a certain thickness.
It is for example common that you want to do this to avoid thicker sheets lifting the fingers. It is also useful in robotized solutions where doing a retract at every bend is common.
