Designed in house, our ProCAM software uses HGG’s 40 years of 3D profiling knowledge and synthesizes it into a software system designed to maximize throughput and material usage, saving users both time and money. Both ProCAM and ProCAM Lite are the only suite of software specifically designed for HGG profiling machines. “We are specialists in 3D profiling, so we know what our customers need,” said HGG Global Sales Manager, Wiebe Wiersma. “What better way to ensure our software system meets our customer needs than to develop it ourselves with their input?”

The ProCAM suite features:

  • ProCAD providing direct connection to and from several leading CAD/CAM companies including Tekla® Structures, SDS/2, AutoCAD®, SolidWorks® Inventor, Bocad and more.

  • ProGRAM gives users the ability to design parts with HGG’s extensive predefined macro shape library.

  • ProMIS is a management information system that uses real-time machine data to create reports on cutting performance, processing speeds and productivity.

  • Advanced nesting algorithms allow users to maximize material usage and minimize waste.

  • Stock Manager allows users to manage stock material and use available material for nesting.

  • Stock Manager can be combined with the label printer and scanner option to allow track and trace functionality. Operators can simply scan the material loaded on the machine and it automatically loads the correct cutting data.

Teaming up with industry’s leading CAD/CAM companies

HGG has partnered with several industry CAD/CAM companies to ensure seamless integration and transfer of data from design through data processing to machine. In fact, HGG recently partnered with SDS/2 to create a plugin that directly links to ProCAM. The plugin enables direct definition of cutting information in the SDS/2 CAD model, including detection of holes and pipe notches.

ProCAM Lite is a free software program that gives users the ability to view and check cutting details on various profiles without a cutting machine or intermediary viewing software. Users can review all parameters and weld details for a project before cutting and production, including root openings and markings, for any DSTV, NC, XML, or PCD file.
