Announcement of CENIT's FASTSUITE Prima Power Edition

Prima Power raises laser cutting processes to a new level

Prima Power extends its software with the FASTSUITE Prima Power Edition developed by CENIT. The company, headquartered in Collegno, Italy, is a leading manufacturer of 2D and 3D laser cutting systems, and of machines and automatic manufacturing lines for sheet metal processing, and distributes the software worldwide with its 3D Prima Power laser machines.

Prima Power maintains a long-standing, successful partnership with the IT consulting and software company CENIT in order to be able to offer a key solution for 3D systems. Since automation and robotics are becoming increasingly important, the company has decided to take a further step and will sell the new software edition itself in the future.

Marco Pivanti, Prima Power 3D Laser Product Manager, is convinced of the advantages of the FASTSUITE Prima Power Edition: "With this new product our machines can show their full strength. It enables our customers to set up their production processes as quickly and efficiently as possible because the software is tailored to their requirements. Both together offer our customers real competitive advantages in their daily challenges".

The software supports the entire offline programming process, from importing CAD files to optimizing the NC program. The programming as well as the simulation are optimally adapted to the laser cutting processes on Prima machines. This enables efficient, intuitive and rule-based programming. Users benefit from a modern, easy-to-use user interface, an integrated cycle time simulator and simple license management. The product features a very flexible fixture builder for automated definition of prototype fixtures as well as series fixtures with integrated clamps.

Jens Fetzer, Vice President Business & Partner Development Digital Factory Solutions at CENIT, is pleased about the successful cooperation: "CENIT as an expert for digital twin and offline programming as well as Prima Power as market leader in the 3D segment complement each other perfectly. The FASTSUITE Prima Power Edition is compatible with any CAD system and at the same time open for the support of current machine concepts such as the use of external axes for component handling".

 

For the digital factory

CENIT sees itself as a partner for successful digital transformation and, with FASTSUITE, offers the right solution for layout planning, offline programming, production simulation and virtual commissioning for every customer.

FASTSUITE Edition 2 serves as an independent 3D simulation software. This includes component handling, automation technology, process assurance, offline teaching, offline programming, and virtual commissioning in a uniform 3D environment. Thanks to its modular structure, the scalable and open solution is suitable both for small companies that only want to program one robot cell and for large companies that want to map an entire digital factory in perspective.
