Developers Diaries #10 - Friendship Forever

The Buddy 1015 and PEAKTOURe produce, something grows together. I haven't contacted you for a long time to bring you up to date with our new development of the nesting system. Now it's time again, there is something new to announce. We nested and cut the first pattern on our buddy. As you can see in the picture, we cut exactly where we finally placed the pattern. PEAKTOURe produce will replace CCUT in the future.

Admittedly, the part looks more like an ugly duckling and maybe we should have chosen something more representative for the premiere. In this case, however, we didn't really care, because, as is so often the case in life, it's not the looks that matter, but the inner values. This geometry can really shine because it was already developed in the new CAD. I also tried to figure out what the contour should represent. Nobody could really remember it. It is important, however, that the complexity of the geometry with different symmetries is already relatively high.

 

The next steps will be to be able to address the other cutting tools in addition to the knife. And of course the connectivity to other cutting tables from Zünd and bullmer. Then configurations with conveyor and all other possible extensions will be possible.

So there is still a lot to do in the next few weeks. The user interface shown in the picture is not yet final either, but the direction in which it should go is slowly becoming apparent. We are sure that the usability of the software will also improve a lot.

 

We are slowly starting to see the results of our work and that the efforts of the last few months are bearing fruit. For now we're celebrating PART # 1.

Efficient. Precise. Simple. The RSA Force Lasting System

RG Technologies RSA Force Lasting Production-Technology

Robot System Automation has developed an innovative, semi-automatic lasting machine for stobel or moccassin footwear. The RSA Force Lasting System is simple to use and offers the operator efficient support. The muscle power required for single bars is reduced to a minimum. This allows the workplace to be staffed more flexibly. The daily output is significantly increased and the workplace is more attractive.

 

The Force Lasting Machine offers the possibility to save many parameters, such as size, last shape and upper material. The machine is equipped with a pneumatic automated shoemaker. Two rubber driven rollers which are working in opposite directions bring the upper optimally onto the last. The result is a consistently high and wrinkle-free quality for every upper.

Technical Data:  

Power Supply:

 1 kW
Power Consumption: 220 V
Compressed Air: 6 - 10 bar
Dimensions (mm): 800 x 600 x 1700
Weight: 250 kg

The new RSA Force Lasting System is now available for testing in our showroom. Are you interested? Please arange a personal visit at any time. We look forward to you.


Developers Diaries #9

The Integration of New Functions

The last few months with lockdown, shutdown and all the other downs that followed have not passed without a trace in our development.

Therefore, we had to postpone our big goal of having a first demonstrable version of PEAKTOURe produce ready by the end of 2020. We can keep an eye on more precise dates when we go back to normal operations in development. According to our plan, this will be the case in the next 1-2 months.

 

Despite the restrictions, we were of course not inactive and decided to incorporate some functions and extensions that are already available in the new program into the current version of our software.

 

As a customer, you will therefore no longer find just one standard algorithm for automatic nesting in our nesting software CCUT, but can now choose between three automatic nesting algorithms. Each of these provides powerful and comprehensive functions and can be fully recommended. Of course, every algorithm has its special strengths, which come into play with certain requirement profiles. In the screenshots you can see some application examples for a first orientation.

Corona Developers Diaries #7

Warm regards from Bavaria with restricted exit. Of course, the last few days have not left us without a trace due to the current situation. Nevertheless, our office is still open and we can be reached under the known telephone numbers. More on this at the end of the blog.

 

Of course, the loss of various communication channels is not always a disadvantage for software developers. And that's why I can introduce you to some new functions from the new PEAKTOURe family despite home office, lessons at home and various other obstacles.

 

After we have been able to import inventory data from CCAD, as already mentioned, we have integrated several nesting algorithms into the application in the past few weeks. In the future you will have a choice of three different algorithms. This enables us to ensure that we always have the best solution for your needs, regardless of the industry in which you operate.

We have already developed a first simulation for the output of the nested data. The simulated cutting table is currently a Buddy 1015, which we were able to install for a customer at the beginning of March. All other types of the brands we distribute will follow over time. The following figure shows the simulation of some areas and the activated vacuum zones of the table. The next step will be to control the table parameters via the GUI.

If I have piqued your interest and you would like further information, we can be reached via the known telephone numbers, as already mentioned. In addition, as usual, we can give you support via Teamviewer and also offer you zoom video conferences.

Stay online, but above all, stay healthy.

 

Best Regards

Developers Diaries #6

Welcome to the new edition of the Developers Diaries. We have big plans this year. In one of the previous blogs I introduced PEAKTOURe 3D to you, which is the first module of our next software generation. Today I can present a first screenshot of PEAKTOURe produce.

 

In 2019 we created the basic structures for the later 2D module PEAKTOURe develop. It is already possible to import the CAD data from the current CCAD and edit them with the first functions. Before we start refactoring the entire module, we decided to set up our new nesting program. CCUT becomes PEAKTOURe produce.

 

The following illustration shows a first user interface of our technical demo. This is not about individual features, but about the technical feasibility of the basic characteristics of PEAKTOURe produce.

As in the entire PEAKTOURe project, the aim is to transfer the existing functions to the new software generation. The functions are expanded, their operation is simplified and they are designed to be as intuitive as possible. We promise you a big step forward, especially when it comes to the adaptation of individual process sequences and the use of new peripheral devices.

 

Of course, PEAKTOURe produce, like PEAKTOURe 3D, will run on all major operating systems, if they are Windows or Linux. Other operating systems are currently not on our agenda. However, the running capability could be implemented if necessary, due to the platform-independent development under QT.

 

We will again host an Open Day in 2020. We have not yet set the exact date in autumn, but our goal is to be able to present a first version of PEAKTOURe produce by then. In the following Developers Diaries I will constantly keep you informed about the current state of the development.

Stay online and best regards
