Expertise

Computer Aided Design

We can design, develop, maintain and optimize CAD software, including:

  • Cross-OS development
  • Compatibility with many makes and models of machinery
  • Integration with third-party applications (AutoDesk, Solid Works)
  • Support for industry standard file formats (DXF, DWG, IGES)
  • 2D and 3D GPU rendering
  • Deconstructing 3D models to flat components

Computer Aided Manufacture

High precision CNC sheet metal stamping and punching machinery.

At Bleum we have experience working across the breadth of computer aided manufacturing processes:

  • Geometry design
  • Sheet layout
  • Tool assignment
  • Sequencing
  • NC & SY2 output
  • Unload automation and 3D simulation

Nesting Algorithms

Nesting is the process of optimizing cutting pattern layout to minimize waste and maximize material utilization.

At Bleum we have spent many years designing and optimizing nesting algorithms, incorporating techniques such as heuristic search and clustering to improve both efficiency and speed, allowing for fast quotation work.

We are currently researching how to best leverage Machine Learning to further optimize and improve nesting through self-optimizing algorithms.

Why Bleum?

  • Deep Knowledge

    Our teams of specialist engineers have a deep CAD/CAM domain knowledge built through a combination of project delivery and our learning and development programs.

  • Smart Nesting

    We have developed cutting-edge auto nesting algorithms to minimize material wastage and simplify layout generation.

  • Broad technology base

    With experience in technologies including C/C++, MFC, Qt, OSG, and Webservices, we have the technology expertise to work in every stage of the manufacturing process.

  • Quality

    Our CMMI 5 certification, coupled with our dedication to zero defect development and strict quality controls, guarantees the highest quality deliverables in the industry.
