Fabrication-software developer Lantek, Mason, OH, in collaboration the Spanish research foundation Vicomtech, has launched BeroSim--3D simulation software that allows users to calculate graphically and interactively how heat propagate and is distributed through sheetmetal during laser- or plasma-arc cutting.

Results of the simulation process enable the selection of the optimum cutting process and procedure, the companies say, improving performance by allowing users to anticipate and detect unforeseen anomalies, and minimizing material distortion. The user also can correct the cutting path and trajectory of the cutting machine to maintain part quality.
