Cincinnati Inc has developed new Microsoft Vista-compatible versions of its laser nesting and press brake bend simulation software. Vista-compatible software versions are Laser Nesting version 4.5X and Bend Simulation version 4.5X.
The laser and press brake software allow off-line programming and simulation to maximize machine run-time and enable right-the-first-time part processing. Advanced graphics make it simple to create programs from CAD files.
The Bend Simulation software uses OpenGL accelerator. Users need to be aware that Vista does not have full support from all graphic board manufacturers, said Cincinnati. Customers should take appropriate steps to ensure their hardware works with Vista before upgrading their PCs. Newly purchased PCs with the appropriate OpenGL accelerator should not be a problem.
