Offline programming system for 3D contours with machines

With FASTTRIM, CENIT offers a simple, interactive and powerful solution for 3D cutting applications. Several technologies are supported, from laser cutting, water jet cutting and ultrasound cutting, and milling to laser-beam hardening and laser deposition welding. Offline programming for 3D contours is performed easily and quickly with FASTTRIM within CATIA V5. 


FASTTRIM is fully integrated in the powerful CATIA V5 CAD/CAM infrastructure. The many automatic functions, integrated programming, post processing and simulation, comprehensive CAD and simulation capabilities as well as NC conversion and read-back options create a working environment that is optimally attuned to the needs of the user.

Multi-axis 3D laser processing of complex components can be performed quickly, efficiently and in high quality with FASTTRIM.
