SigmaNEST For Defense

SigmaNEST has the functionality breadth and depth for assuring accurate cutting of load-bearing parts, but also sheet metal panels in building trucks and armored vehicles with expensive steel materials.

A few ways SigmaNEST nesting software supports the Military

Automatic pulsing
Power ramping

Variable feedrates

Pierce-on-the-fly
Cluster punch with tool substitution capability

SigmaNEST utilizes all machine cutting/punching functions and technologies, ensuring peak performance while integrating with other software and systems to optimize processes.

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 over-burn 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.
