Your spiral duct and fittings fabrication systems are only as efficient as the software you use to design products and monitor your machinery. While machine maintenance and optimizing your processes for maximum productivity is important, you can only create the highest quality output if you have the technology and software to go with it. In this post, we'll discuss how to improve spiral duct fabrication with integrated software and the benefits that software can provide for your fabrication shop.
Software in Spiral Duct Fabrication
Today’s top rectangular duct fabrication equipment is designed to work with your software. Acquiring the right seamless integration of shop detail drawing (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM) software is critical in the process in delivering a quality product to the shop and field. Additionally, a feature to look for is an industrial, solid-state PLC touch screen operating system controller with storage recall. The ability to store and recall designs means you’re able to changeover quickly to put out more product that you’ve made before.
Additionally, CAM software optimizes the job to save the most material. Instead of having the operator input the production manually, it’s automated to ensure you are getting the most efficient result. The office CAM station personnel will input the job and then download to the machine which will optimize material and save time. All together, this technology enhances the opportunity to eliminate human error and to reduce labor costs.
