    Lightbulb CAM software for Turret punch press

    Hello all,

    We have a Amada Vipros Turret punch press for sheet metal punching. We have been using Fabriwin for G code generation after building sheet layout in AutoCAD since years however that software we have only runs on 32 bit machines and in today's situation, we are looking to upgrade to new 64 bit machines.

    So I have been looking for alternatives but not able to find much.

    Could you guys suggest any softwares for Punch Press CNC Programming or CAM. Many options I find are for Laser/Plasma. Not many for punch press. Any software suggestions (with download link if possible) are greatly appreciated.

    FWIW, a competent IT person can set you up with a new machine running Windows 10 32 bit and transfer FabriWin over.

    As far as programming softwares, I've used Amada Dr Abe Blank and Merry Mech SMP. Dr Abe is faster and has much better nesting capabilites, but you have less finite control over things such as tool path vs SMP.

    Here's a list of various programming softwares

    Thank you for the link. I had seen this before somewhere but lost it.
    I will look into it.

    I know we can use Win 10 32 bit for this however as 32 bit machines have inferior performance issues, we are looking to jump to x64 to avoid future problems.
