Bevel Recognition and Unfolding

Bevel cutting in thick plates can be cut in laser/plasma/waterjet/milling machines with tilt head. FR has developed bevel feature recognition in which four types of bevels such as V-Bevel, Y-Bevel, X-Bevel and K-Bevel can be recognized.

Bevels are not only recognized on just planar surfaces, but can also be recognized on bent surfaces as shown in Fig 2.

Unfold can also be generated as shown in Fig 3 for components with bevel features.
