Prodim at the Stone Show – on the left of the main entrance

If you are planning to visit Prodim at the Natural Stone Show in London to see the latest developments that make the digital templating system even easier to handle and more powerful with its upgraded capacity, you will find the company just on the left of the main entrance (see the floorplan below).

The reason for mentioning that is because Prodim was just on the right of the main entrance, but the entrance has been moved by the organisers to accommodate the largest ever number of exhibitors now that the Stone Show is co-locating with Hard Surfaces.

Prodim is still on stand P69, but now P69 is on the left through the Natural Stone Show main entrance. Hard Surfaces has its own entrance, although in the halls there is no barrier between the two exhibitions.

Prodim has been supplying complete digital templating solutions to stone templators and fabricators for more than two decades. The Proliner is at the heart of a package completed by digital templating software explicitly for the stone industry. Prodim invests heavily in the continuous development of the Proliner stone package and the latest improvements can be seen on the company's stand in London.

They include redesigned hardware making it easier to handle, including improvements for a better grip on the measuring 'pen'. The measuring wire is now also more visible, so co-workers on-site are less likely to walk into it. Inside, the Proliner storage capacity has been quadrupled and battery management has been improved.

The Proliner Generation 4.X software update builds on the successful launch of the 4.X last year. The new update adds editing features that make it easier to align cut-outs. The 'closed shape check' is a helpful new feature for creating closed production pieces.

There are two new smartphone apps - Proliner Remote and Proliner Update.

Prodim developed these applications (Android) for connecting with the Proliner. The Proliner Remote app enables operators to use their smartphones as a Proliner remote controller, while the Proliner Update uses the internet connection of the smartphone to update the Proliner software anywhere, anytime.

As well as the templater itself, Prodim has updated Prodim Factory Draw. Just before the Marmo+Mac exhibition in Verona last year, Prodim enabled the direct import of Proliner measurement files for editing in Factory Draw, which is fast, easy-to-use desktop computer CAD drawing software that extends the functionalities of the Proliner Edit software. Both Proliner newcomers and Proliner veterans have confirmed that Factory Draw is easy to master and makes processing and finalising digital templates straightforward.

Factory Draw has been developed, taking into account customer feedback, and the latest release of the program is Prodim Factory 3.0, with improved data flow from the Proliner. Projects and pictures can now be imported using a smartphone, and a slab stock overview has been added to the Factory Slab Creator module.

The complete Proliner Stone package can be seen first hand on stand P69 at the Natural Stone Show in London. Prodim invites all stone templators and fabricators to discover for themselves why users say Proliner offers the industry's best return on investment.
