Batch processing means that multiple parts or assemblies are processed by the software automatically.
All necessary tasks are performed without user input, the results are reported back and production data is created.
If any issues occur, for example parts being impossible to bend, they are reported back through the system and the operator can review them.
The Remote part of the add-on is built in such a way that external software systems can instruct AutoPOL to process parts or assemblies automatically and receive the results back. This makes it possible for existing planning and production systems to interface with AutoPOL and use it for press brake integration.
Below you will find a short description of the main technical features and benefits of add-on Batch & Remote.
Using the included Industry 4.0 Data Sharing protocol, any software system can extract information and data from AutoPOL. Typical information can be, for example, part information, press brake process data or properties extracted from the imported CAD file. This data can then be used for quoting, planning, analysis or anything else you can imagine.
With the Batch & Remote add-on you can choose what level of automation and integration you want to do. Everything from manually selecting parts to be auto-processed to importing job lists generated from other systems to full scale integration where all systems communicate without any human intervention.
