Sheet metal software
with nesting upgrades
Vero Software has introduced Radan
2015, which features 180 upgrades.
The software now creates more
compact nests by spreading parts
more evenly throughout the sheet
and by better using the middle of the
sheet. Additional nesting upgrades
include the automatic application of
rectangular nesting when appropriate
for nearly rectangular parts.
The software also offers improved
3-D translation procedures that help
ensure information is imported consistently. Its ability to calculate the
thicknesses of imported parts automatically has been redesigned to help
yield faster, more accurate results, the

Inverter power supply
Amada Miyachi America has introduced
the ISB-300A 300-
amp inverter power
supply. It features
a compact size that
makes it suitable for
customers and integrators who have limited space yet require higher output current than traditional fine-spot welders can deliver.
Small enough to fit on a benchtop,
the power source’s design allows integration within a small footprint. It is
suitable for small and medium-scale
applications that require closed-loop
feedback control and fast response
The unit has six control modes:
primary limit, primary root mean
square (RMS), secondary RMS, secondary constant power, secondary
voltage control, and fixed pulse. It
provides 0.050 to 20 kA of power in

Electric servo pumps
TECHNI Waterjet™ has introduced the Value Range of Quantum electric servo pumps (ESPs).
Three models are available:
VP 10/60, capable of running a
0.007-in. orifice at 60,000 PSI;
VP 15/52, capable of running a
0.010-in. orifice at 52,000 PSI;
and the VP 20/55, capable of running a 0.011-in. orifice at
The 990-lb. pumps are 54 by 21 by 42 in. Operated off
single- or three-phase, 200 to 480 V, they require a 30-amp
supply. In addition, the pumps are less than 68 dBA.
The electric servomotor drives the plungers directly and
requires minimal cooling.
