Sheerline announces LogiKal integration

Sheerline has announced it’s now supported by LogiKal software, giving fabricators even more choice when it comes to generating accurate estimations, generating cutting lists and running advanced product specific calculations.

LogiKal is one of the few solutions developed and designed specifically for the aluminium industry and is said to be the ‘software of choice’ for many fabricators because of its advanced features.

By offering full compatibility, more fabricators can add the Sheerline range to their product offering without altering their established workflows.

One of the biggest advantages of this upgrade, according to Sheerline, is the fact LogiKal software uses a CAD-based system. This means it can assist with costings, material planning and manufacturing complex product designs. For instance, it enables Sheerline’s fabricators to perform thermal analysis quickly for a specific manufactured product.

This includes U-value calculations as well as wind-loading for their designs. There is also an option to send designs directly to manufacturing equipment, including CNC machines, through automated links. This is said to be an important feature as it reduces the likelihood of errors and saves time.

As a result of Sheerline’s investment, the company now offers its’ fabricators access to three software packages. This includes First Degree Systems’ Window Designer, Business Micros’ Evolution package, and now Business Micros’ LogiKal.

Sheerline has a dedicated department to support customers who want to get the most from any of their supported software packages, which includes PST for roof customers.

Software development director for Sheerline, Adrian Girling, said: “If you are in the aluminium sector and require a software application that can cope with the complex products, designs, and requirements that can often challenge your existing software, LogiKal is the best option currently available.”

He added: “For those customers currently employing, or with plans to employ, automatic machinery on the shop-floor (CNC routers, saws, etc), LogiKal also benefits from a pre-existing, comprehensive library of machine links, featuring most popular machinery-brands, easing its introduction into modern production environments.”
