If your shop has more remnants or drops than full sheets, you might have an inventory tracking issue. Your cutting process is only as efficient as the software you used to nest your parts. Are you consistently nesting parts that have large remnants but are just big enough to keep you from throwing them away?
Having excess remnants lying around can be a huge waste of money for your operations. Don’t let your remnant piles take over your shop!
With SigmaNEST’s AutoNest, your nesting is always run more efficiently and quickly. You also have the added flexibility of manual nesting if you prefer. SigmaNEST can nest on circles or any other irregular geometry to make the most of your remnants.
Does your shop have too many remnants? If so, you need to take advantage of these SigmaNEST product offerings:
- SigmaNEST has the capability to transform your manufacturing processes. Since you can now nest faster than ever with SigmaNEST and AutoNest, you can afford to spend a few extra minutes manually nesting your parts by meticulously placing your parts 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 remnants, so you can apply its use to relevant jobs.
“Any ERP/MRP/MES solution depending on a standard ‘dimensional inventory’ approach will increase waste in a sheet metal fabrication operation. Why? Remnants,” states Valter Bonelli, Director of Product Management Business Systems. “SigmaMRP fully defines remnant shape, along with other standard parameters. SigmaMRP reduces waste and increases productivity due to comprehensive remnant management. Period.”
Take control of your remnants and you will ensure maximum material yield resulting in more awareness and higher profits for your operations.
