Nesting Flexibility
When Louis Veilleux and Mario Ferland purchased Metal Bernard, the CAD/CAM nesting software already included SigmaNEST. When another facility was added they wanted common, flexible nesting software to drive all current and future fabrication machinery. Louis and Mario already had their answer.

Remnant Management
Standardized nesting lets programmers work across all machinery and plants. This reduced costs and improved efficiency enabling the company to become more competitive. “Because of our lean practices we need to know the status of inventory any time of the day,” states Veilleux. “SigmaNEST allows us to be on top of material traceability and prioritize remnants.”

A nesting program is the best way to manage remnants. True scrap geometry is stored in the program and recalled for future use. This creates a leaner, cost-efficient manufacturing environment.
