FabTrol Systems Releases Fabtrol Pro Version 3.0 with New Integrations with SDS/2

FabTrol Systems provides integrated steel fabrication management software for estimating, drawing management, material management, production and shipping management. FabTrol solutions are designed to grow with fabricators’ changing needs and to integrate readily with hardware and software supply chain providers in the steel fabrication sector.

FabTrol recently announced Version 3.0 of  their FabTrol Pro steel fabrication management software, which includes some great new features including new integrations with SDS/2.

FabTrol Version 3.0 includes four big feature enhancements that will make steel fabricators’ jobs even more efficient.

First, the software now includes part-level production tracking, which allows fabricators to batch, route and track production progress of parts across simultaneous jobs while maintaining traceability of materials.

FabTrol now integrates with popular shaped-plate nesting software like ProNest and SigmaNEST. The software now includes a plate nesting export including a list of parts and part quantities to cut for projects, any available CNC data from the model and stock import into these third-party solutions. 

We’re especially excited about FabTrol’s third enhancement, which directly affects the way the software talks with SDS/2. In Version 2.0, ModelView can export fabrication status inforformation for import into SDS/2. This will update the model with color-coded statuses.

Lastly, the updated FabTrol integrates with Radley Corporation’s http://www.radley.com/fabtrol.htm integrated barcode data capture system, enabling real-time receiving, production and shipping statuses.

We’re proud of the new additions in FabTrol Version 2.0 and are happy to be one of FabTrol System’s partners in such an exciting and innovative industry! Learn more about the enhancement on FabTrol’s website.
