Generating Better Labels Improves Automation

Working with many parts with many manufacturing steps poses a challenge in keeping things organized.   To have even a fighting chance parts need to be identified – labeled – to ensure that everyone know what the part is.

Even with the sophisticated – ‘123-4567’ / project-part numbering scheme we very often need more information and to ensure that the next guy know what to do.

ONGAA CAM has expanded its label printing capabilities in Nesting to support not only the following information:

  • Project with Sheet number
  • seq# and Part Number/Name
  • Dimensions
  • Material Name

These have been expanded to include 5 Solidworks custom properties (one of which can be printed as a barcode) and an image of the part itself.

In the above example, the first custom property indicates the edge banding color and sides to edgeband.  The part number is barcoded for QC / Part Count as well as auto … Read the rest

WoodPrint Integration added to ONGAA CAM for labels

WoodPrintLabelONGAA CAM Nesting now integrates to the WoodPrint Label Printing allowing part information to be printed (and place) directly on the parts.

Basic part dimensions and part names plus 4 SolidWorks Custom properties and well as 4 additional custom properties intended for edge banding information are available.

With WoodPrint feature activated, ONGAA CAM produces the complete set on nested MPRs, Part MPRs and Part Images as required by WoodPrint and referred to by the CSV and PNX using the prescribed naming conventions.

 

The Weeke Vantech Concept series machine nesting CNC machines with the material handling option and label printing take full advantage of the WoodPrint integration by ONGAA CAM.  ONGAA CAM provides the following details for woodprint automatically at time of nesting.

  • Part Name
  • Part ID (WoodPrint identifier)
  • Part Length, Width, Thickness
  • Assembly Name
  • 4 User definable Custom properties retrieved from SOLIDWORKS
  • 4 User definable Custom properties retrieved from
