#1 - INCREASED PRODUCTION = INCREASED PROFIT , REDUCED MANAGER FRUSTRATIONS Just like people are happier on sunny days, for the laser shop it’s when the lights are flashing everyone is just in a better mood.We understand the frustration of walking out into the shop 2 hours after you we last out there, and still, the machine is NOT making production. Why? Because this is the 7th trial part the operator has sent to inspection and this is going to be the lucky one! You, as the production manager, are waiting to fulfill a customer’s order that is now already 1 day past what you said it would be done.On top of that, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE knows that you aren't making money, unless you’re making parts, NOT changes to parts. With LC3D you will make changes accurately, quickly and easily so you can keep your machines making parts, not making hand edits.
#2 - QUICK/EASY CHANGES = REDUCED OPERATOR FRUSTRATIONS Let’s face it, even your operators that do not mind being paid a little overtime to do the time consuming hand edits, still most operators really don’t like doing these changes manually at the machine. They are tedious and difficult to do correctly; and this creates frustrations on the part of the machine operators. They have enough to worry about just getting the fixtures and laser parameters setup properly. With LC3D, your changes are exactly what you want, not a close estimate.Also the software is user friendly enough for your novice programmers and operators to make changes directly to the CNC program (no re-posting required). All this in a simple, visually intuitive interface; that looks and feels like a high end CAD system, without the complexity.
#3 - PROVE OUT PARTS, BEFORE MIRROR IMAGE Wouldn’t it make sense to prove out your part at the machine and have all the corrections made first, BEFORE you mirror image the part?Why go through the same correction process twice.You can do it with Lasersoft Changes 3D Workstation (c) TM
#4 - MAINTAINING OPERATOR PROCESS PARAMETER EDITS Regardless of how good your NC programmers are, on 5 axis laser programs there is almost always some changes that are necessarily made by the experienced laser operator. AND HE DOESN'T WANT TO DO THEM AGAIN. With LC3D Workstation all operators’ comments, block deletes and process parameter edits are maintained. LC3D is designed to manipulate the geometry (although the experienced operator can do much more) of non-block deleted commands. Your operator can have confidence that when the file gets put back into the machine that it his edits remain intact. And the operators all said, AMEN.
#5 - MINIMIZE NC PROGRAM REWORK We all know that formed sheet metal parts vary, and also there are inaccuracies in the machines and laser alignment is not perfect from day to day. To account for these errors by changing the math data and re-posting is a big NO NO. You never want the errors of today to be brought back into your perfect math data world. We believe the part should only be posted one time and then edited as much as you need in the LC3D Workstation. And all the Engineers said, AMEN.
#6 - ROI MEASURED IN WEEKS AND MONTHS, NOT YEARS! Take the hourly burden rate of your 5 axis laser machine and then compare that to the burden rate of our system. Details can be provided upon request. We have done many estimates for customers to date and we have never had an ROI exceed 10 months and most are less than half of that. And that makes LC3D a boom for your 5 axis laser business. And all the Accountants said, AMEN.
#7 – OPPORTUNITY COSTS Every day without Lasersoft Changes 3D Workstation(C)TM is a day of unrecoverable loss when compared to having this vital asset in your company’s technical and financial toolbox.
