SigmaNEST For Shipbuilding

SigmaNEST is the superior nesting solution for beveling, especially important to shipbuilders, as well as other key needs for maximizing material efficiency and machine throughput.

SigmaNEST provides bevel recognition from CAD packages into its software, as well as providing advanced beveling capabilities.

Along with automated bevel part programming, bevel parallel cuts and related abilities, SigmaNEST also can be directly integrated with naval architecture and ship design software, as well as production management software.

SigmaNEST’s marking features allows welding indicators to be managed concurrently with cutting.
Creating nests based on section blocks helps manage the order coordination for how and when each section will be completed and added to the ship.

SigmaNEST for Boat Builders

From wood routing to composite material and fabric cutting, SigmaNEST offers the ideal nesting and NC programming solutions for the boat building industry.

Because SigmaNEST works with all major cutting and punching machines, the various materials needed for boats doesn’t mean different nesting software. Router, knife-cutting, plasma, punching, etc., need just a single nesting software – SigmaNEST.

For working with high-end wood products, SigmaNEST provides a part grouping feature to maintain the material grain direction consistent across a sub-set of parts.

Motion Optimization

SigmaNEST can reduce cutting time through common-line, auto-bridge and auto-chain cutting. The software also configures sequencing for minimum movement and auto tip-up for part avoidance.

Material Utilization

Advanced true shape nesting allows part-in-part nesting, easily combining small and larger parts from multiple orders to get the best material yield. SigmaNEST’s advanced modules provide complete inventory control, allowing best sheet selection, improved remnant consumption and overall inventory reduction.

Part Quality

For large machine parts, SigmaNEST helps ensure cutting the most dimensionally accurate parts through available features like automatic power ramping at corners, auto dwell and exact stops as well as varying, user-defined cut quality within a single part and between different parts in a single nest. Lead-in options, such as overburn and micro-joints, help ensure part quality for the larger, denser parts required for construction and agricultural equipment.

For punch machines, SigmaNEST offers the option for “auto dynamic” nesting to tool and nest parts at the same time. Common-line punching, automatic and interactive repositioning, tabbing and drop-door capabilities are among the other key punch features.
