If your shop has more remnants or drops than full sheets, you might have an inventory tracking issues. Your cutting process is only as efficient as the software you used to nest. Are you consistently nesting parts that leave you with large space wasting remnants but are just big enough to keep you from throwing them away?
Having excess remnants laying around can be a huge money waster for your operations. Don’t let your remnant piles take over your shop!
With SigmaNEST’s autonest, your nesting is always efficient and faster. You also have the added flexibility of manual nesting. SigmaNEST can nest on circles or any other irregular geometry to make the most of your remnants.
Does your shop look like this? If so, you need to take advantage of these SigmaNEST product offerings:
- With our newest release, SigmaNEST X1 SP1, the automatic nesting algorithm in our new HD-TSPlus nesting engine has increased the average nesting speed by 146%. Since you can now nest faster than ever, you can afford to spend a few extra minutes meticulously placing parts in order to yield as much material as possible to decrease your remnants.
- Our SigmaMRP business system is our solution for inventory, work orders, process planning and tracking progress for your fabrication operations. Inventory tracking can substantially increase your awareness of usable remnants so that you can get the most material yield. Inventory tracking allows you to assign sheets and material based on jobs.
- Remnant Tracking is an independent feature within SigmaNEST that is solely dedicated to keeping your remnants top of mind and ready to be re-used in your inventory control system. This allows you to load geometry information and other details about the remnant so you can apply its use to relevant jobs.
Take control of your remnants and you will ensure maximum material yield resulting in more awareness and higher profits for your operations.
