Product Overview

Product Overview

With FASTTIP, CENIT provides award-winning and established offline programming software for 3D point-to-point processing, which can be implemented in the field of robotics as well as machining. Several technologies from spot welding and clinching in body-in-white processes to (multilayer) drilling and riveting in the aerospace (airframe assembly) and automotive field can be programmed, mapped and supported.
Thanks to offline programming with FASTTIP for 3D point-to-point applications, large volumes of joining elements (fasteners) can be efficiently an easily managed, programmed, simulated and optimized within CATIA V5.


Product Advantages

  • Fully integrated 3D programming, postprocessing, simulation and process verification
  • High degree of automation and professional data flow: Process features, displaying of all fasteners (TXT, point/line, point/surface, UDF, point/property), purging data for surfaces, creation of points, determination of work direction, grouping and sequence planning
  • Adjustable riveting operation: Definition of process parameters, selection of geometry (rubberband, polygon-selection, standard V5 queries), definition of approach and depart motions, process events
  • Integrated tool machines or robot cell simulation
  • Function to read back existing programs
  • Automatic conversion of jointing representation in process features
  • Comfortable filtering, selection and sequencing of process features
  • Automatic layer analysis for multilayer drilling
  • Powerful functions to calculate smooth and collision-free tool paths
  • Flexible functionalities for detailing, changing and supplementing fasteners
  • Reliable robot and machine programs
