SigmaNEST for Construction & Architecture
SigmaNEST is ideal for nesting the large parts requiring strength and stability for constructing buildings and prefabricated homes. Effective nesting reduces costly scrap material and cutting time, as well as prolongs the life of machine consumables for oxyfuel, plasma and laser cutting machines.
A few ways SigmaNEST nesting software supports the Construction & Architecture Industry
- Advanced nesting and NC pathing for multi-torch plate machines
- Sophisticated nesting and NC pathing for common line cutting
- Variety of pre-piercing capabilities for heavy plate, including custom pre-pierce shapes
- Part tracking database to easily located existing static nests for a part
- Revision tracking
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.
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.
For large machine parts, SigmaNEST cuts the most dimensionally accurate parts through features like automatic power ramping at corners, auto dwell and exact stops, as well as varying, user-defined cut quality. Other features, such as over-burn and tabbing, 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.
