The benefits of Calculate for the metal industry

Efficiency and speed

Reduce the time between request and production

Calculate achieves up to 97% time savings compared to other calculation methods in making cost calculations. Prepare complex assemblies in a fraction of the usual time. Our software offers accuracy and speed that can save you hours of time in the production process.


Simplify work preparation

Automating the work preparation process reduces pressure on the work planners, leaving more time for the production of parts.


Make accurate price calculations

The calculation software uses live prices thanks to a link with your material database. This means that the cost calculations are always up to date.

Recover files quickly

Integration with Spaceclaim CAD-engine

Thanks to SpaceClaim’s CAD engine, Calculate can effortlessly process poorly drawn CAD files itself. Wether they need to be repaired or optimized, our software ensures that the calculation process is not disrupted. SpaceClaim integration also enables automatic geometry and dimension changes, making your workflow even more streamlined.

Less input work

Easily establish calculation rules

The complexity of compositions in the production process is increasing. Establishing calculation rules reduces work input, thereby limiting errors.

Customized implementation

Use of own calculation rules

Calculate can be configured according to your wished with your own calculation rules. Existing rules are easy to adopt and can be implemented in the calculation software. Calculate can also be connected to a wide range of ERP systems.

User friendly

Clear interface

Calculate has an intuitive and user-friendly interface that puts the user first. The software is designed to simplify complex calculations and makes advanced functionalities easy to use by the entire team.

100% production ready

Files are immediately ready for production

The files can be used directly in the production process. Calculate generates 100% workable output files for production including DXF cutting files.

Calculate connects with every system

Calculate connects seamlessly to a wide range of CAM and ERP systems including Libellula, AutoPOL, MKG, Komdex, RidderIQ, BLM software: Adige, Artube, Protube and more. These connections include realtime access to material prices and operating rates, which is essential for accurate quoting and order management.

How Calculate helped other companies

Efficient calculations with Calculate

ALES Metaaltechniek, manufacturer in metalworking and mechanical engineering in Rhenen, has achieved a significant improvement in their production prodcess with the implementation of AESC's calculation software Calculate.

"Calculate has made us more efficient in preparing calculations. We previously had to check a lot manually. Data cleaning is a lot faster than before. In addition to sheet metal, we can also include tubes in the calculation, which makes Calculate an indispensable tool for ALES."

Ruben Spansier, Senior Production Planner, ALES Metaaltechniek

Smart order management and fast calculations

Spaan B.V. recently made the decision to transform their operational processes using process automation. With the integration of Calculate, Spaan now offers faster and more accurate cost calculations and quotations for production. Instead of hours, these calculations can now be accomplished in a few minutes and Spaan can save considerable time.

"AESC has helped us automate and simplify processes using the right software, increasing our production."

Nick Spaan, CEO Spaan B.V.

Increase production and reduce errors

Taking your business to the next level through software automation. Without losing the core values and identity of your company. This is the vision of Freddy Holwerda. He has been the owner of Almetaal since May 2022. The comapny that specializes in perforated metal, expanded metal and metal mesh. Almetaal is in the middle of a transformation process. Freddy has big plans.

“AESC's software solutions have a huge impact on our operations. The production speed has been increased and errors have been drastically reduced. The ease of use of the software allows our team to learn and adapt to new processes.”
