Aspan is an integrated CAD-CAM program that enjoys a world-wide reputation as the easiest to use software for programming woodworking machinery.
Experience the powerful combination of usability and high level commands, functions and options that saves time and materials.
Aspan can link to a vast variety of machines and external programs for a highly versatile and proficient process.
Automatic routines make it easy for users to define the machining operations to be performed on the unfinished parts.
Machine and tooling configuration is made easy by an import procedure for configuring data directly from the machine, allowing the user to be up and running in a few simple steps without wasting time on long setting procedures.
The programs intuitive and versatile interface enables users to draw their production parts quickly and easily in the CAD environment. These can then be transferred to the CAM environment to prepare the optimised machine programs needed to actually produce the part, all using advanced yet easy to understand functions and commands for holes, routings, pockets, text etc.
Aspan can also easily be linked to a variety of external programs, meaning that users can prepare designs with their drawing program of choice and use Aspan functions to generate the machine programs necessary.
Link to programs such as:
- Pattern System
- Cabinet WARE
- Drill Mate
Multiple Machine Compatibility
Aspan has the ability to manage many machines without the need to use other programs or different work environments. This enables users to easily switch available configurations and generate part-programs for more machines from the same drawing.
This function can be used as a vital link between machines making it possible to pass data from one machine to another.
Supported machines include:
Optimize the filling of a panel, part of a panel or a series of panels with closed parts of any shape, using the CAD or machine environment.
For each cutting diagram users can create a series of Graphic Reports, Part Labels, Optimized Drawings and Machine Programs.
Prepare the drawing and machine program needed to produce a finished door from a single, unfinished panel. This module comes complete with a library of door types, which can be customised to the user's requirements and then added to the library.
This module can be used together with the Nesting Module.
Prepare all the drawings, machining operations and machine programs needed to produce a complete cabinet starting out from unfinished panels.
This module comes complete with a library; which can be customised to the user's requirements and added to the library. All furniture components can be customised later using the CAD commands.
This module can be used together with the Door Module and Nesting Module.
2D Vectorializer Module
Convert any image into a drawing that can be used by the Partner/Aspan program.
The image can contain any type of subject such as artwork, logo or geometric design. This drawing can be modified, scaled and rotated, assigned tools and converted to a machine program just as you would with a normal drawing.
3D Artistic CAM
A powerful tool which allows you to transform an image into a three-dimensional drawing of PARTNER/ASPAN. Even complex shapes can be determined accurately and the Module allows you to view a detailed preview of the work to be performed by PARTNER/ASPAN.
This valuable module allows you to estimate the costs needed to implement a nesting.
Manage the cost of material, the machine, the operator or the employees at work and all necessary extra costs. Also includes a variety of customisable features and saving functions for a more efficient quoting process.
