PLUS BEND – Bending Software: is a software which automatically calculates the total flat length of bent component, after the user has fed all the necessary information regarding the bent component, at the click of a button the flat length of the component is calculated. Thus after obtaining the flat length of the bent component and its width we can get the size of the blank to be cut from the stock.
This data can be exported to PLUS 2D for generating cutting layouts for material optimization by a simple click of the button. The software can automatically develop the bending schedule and the marker diagram for the bent component.
It has a simple wizard like user interface, you can work in any units (inches, mm), and can calculate developed lengths for multiple components of the same material in one job. The reports are tailored for the shop floor, and give you all details in a simple and concise form and available as an RTF file, that you can e-mail.
