Sheerline launches LogiKal integration


The Sheerline brand of aluminium windows and doors is now supported by LogiKal software. The integration gives fabricators more choice when it comes to generating accurate estimations, generating cutting lists and running advanced, product-specific calculations, according to Sheerline’s representatives.

“While other software solutions have been developed based on PVC-U requirements, LogiKal is one of the few solutions developed and designed specifically for the aluminium industry,” said Sheerline’s representative. “LogiKal has earnt its place as the aluminium software of choice for many fabricators because of its advanced features.

“By offering full compatibility, the company is enabling more fabricators to add the Sheerline range to their product offering without altering their established workflows. This is a win/win as fabricators benefit from both LogiKal and Sheerline’s advanced features.

“One of the biggest advantages of this upgrade is the fact LogiKal software uses a Cad-based system,” continued the representative. “This means that 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 an important feature as it reduces the likelihood of errors and saves time.”

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

Sheerline’s leaders opted for these software packages as they wanted to ensure that customers could adopt the Sheerline product range using the solutions they are already familiar with. The company’s leaders also recognise the fact that fabricators need agility, power and flexibility.

LogiKal is supported alongside Sheerline’s other packages, meaning that Sheerline can easily be adopted by even more customers, they say, regardless of a business’ size or system requirements.

Both new and existing Sheerline customers can benefit from the addition of LogiKal as they now have wider choice when deciding which software to use, the company’s representatives added. Sheerline has a dedicated department to support customers who want to get the most from any of its supported software packages, which includes PST for roof customers, they said.

Adrian Girling, software development director for Sheerline, added: “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.

“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 the most popular machinery brands, really easing its introduction into modern production environments.”
