The new version of imos iX 2021 available since 21.10.2021

With each new version of imos, we also pursue a vision - we want to offer our users not just the latest, but the best version of our software.


Winfried Dell
Board of Directors imos AG

In developing our new version, we have clearly focused on expanding our cloud services and on digital networking within the industry. At imos, we are pushing ahead with the strategy of opening up our technology, which will raise cooperation opportunities for production and marketing to a new level. In this way, we are responding to the global trend that industrial companies and craft enterprises alike are increasingly designing their business models across company boundaries, selling products internationally and modernizing their services.

iX NET Highlights


Tailor-made for B2B sales: impressive planning with all the details is made possible by the new room planner - and it's both quick and easy.

iX CAM


Optimized workflow

Copying stations now works across workflows. Details subordinate to the stations can also be copied within a workflow.


Increased performance

Multithreading enables the distribution of the workload. For example, data generation can be distributed across several (max. four) cores - the result: data is generated twice as fast.

iX CAM Highlights


Using two post-processors (instead of one) doubles the speed of generating drawing documents, manufacturing documents and CNC programs, speeding up operations and maximizing productivity.

iX Connect


imos has developed a software component for users of the desktop-oriented CAD/CAM application iX CAD that acts as an interface to make the integration of such services simple. As an integrated component of the iX Organizer, iX Connect handles both the communication of iX CAD with the cloud and the checking of access and usage authorizations as well as the exchange of relevant data. iX CAD users can thus easily add services to the functional scope of their software and make their manufacturing process more convenient without having to access many individual programs.


The first service that can be integrated into iX CAD via the cloud is intelliDivide from HOMAG. The digital assistant is just one of many digital products made available by the HOMAG Group via its industry platform tapio. intelliDivide takes the cutting lists generated from CAD, determines the appropriate cutting optimization for the components in just a few moments and transfers the data to the saw. The optimization result can be controlled according to different criteria and calculates either the handling by the machine operator, the waste, the material costs, the time required or a balanced solution.


How does iX Connect work?


The integration of external services has never been easier than with the new imos interface.

iFurn


We have redesigned the interface in the iFurn Catalog: The appealing design and new structure provide a better overview. New functions have also been added.


Existing manufacturer catalogs were updated and expanded.
