Automatic tape layer programming software torlay
TORLAY is a CATIA V5 fully integrated application developed by M. Torres to allow the creation of CNC part programs for the TORRESLAYUP in an easy and user friendly manner. It allows the programmer to use all the initial tooling designs that they have in CATIA V5 without any loss of information due to CAD format.
The programmer enters a number of parameters into the system to generate the tape trajectory using base surfaces, ply contours and laying orientations. It helps the user to define machine and material constrains (minimum length, allowed cutting angles, minimum tape with, etc) to easily obtain a executable CNC program. Other laying parameters such as scrap area, flow area, clear surface, laying feed rates, etc can also be determined from the TORLAY application.
TORLAY displays what the ply will look like based on the parameters that the programmer entered for him/her to depurate the ply by modifying those parameters.
Automatic fiber placement programming software torfiber
As in the case of the Tape Layer Machine, TORFIBER is a CATIA V5 fully integrated application developed by M. Torres to allow the creation of CNC part programs for the TORRESFIBERLAYUP in an easy and user friendly manner. It allows the programmer to use all the initial tooling designs that they have in CATIA V5 without any loss of information due to CAD format.
The programmer enters parameters into the TORFIBER program to complete the ply definition. The system is very comprehensive and flexible allowing the programmer to take different laying strategies.
Again, the system displays the ply on the screen for the programmer to analyze and eventually modify some of the parameters entered to obtain a fully satisfactory and machine doable ply.
The integrated software allows the creation of machine executable files directly from the DELMIA V5 environment.
TORFIBER application generates all the laying process information in the CATProcess document, in DELMIA environment. It also post processes the information in the CATProcess document to generate CNC file.
MTorres has developed unique solutions for machine simulation.
Our software solution for automated MTorres composite CNC machines are fully integrated in DELMIA V5.
MTorres simulation software reads CAD models and NC programs and simulates these programs on a virtual machine, detecting collision between machine and parts. These features allow correcting programming errors, avoiding machine collisions or defective parts
