Fabricators can optimize material usage, machines, manpower and data in the face of supply chain disruptions and labor shortages.
In the world of nesting, tube can be quite different to work with than plate. With plate, there is a level of nesting freedom that fabricators don’t get with tube.
Service centers make their software platform smarter with CAD/CAM integration.

CAMBRIO, a global manufacturing software solutions provider is pleased to announce that Sandeep Srivastava will join the leadership team, and has been appointed Managing Director – India, South East Asia, and Middle East.
In today’s manufacturing workflow, 3D CAD models can be a key component for driving the rest of the production process downstream. So, whether you are a small job shop or large equipment manufacturer, or anything in between, it is critical to tightly integrate the CAD program and its native CAD files with the right CAM nesting solution.
Designing parts to be produced on router machines comes with a unique set of obstacles. Wood can be very challenging to work with because of its delicate nature and the extensive number of tools used in the cutting process. SigmaTEK Senior Engineer, Kevin Keane, weighs in on important factors to consider when designing for router machines.
SigmaTEK Systems is pleased to announce the addition of its Business Systems Suite integrated alongside the flagship SigmaNEST product portfolio in Version 20 Service Pack 2 (SP2). This latest release of advanced CAD/CAM, Shop Floor Control, and now, Business Systems, brings a full range of fabrication optimization and data management features inside one familiar user interface.
Forming on a Press Brake used to be relatively simple. Fast forward to today, and the introduction of CNC controls, and more accurate and efficient processes, bring a whole new aspect to bending that operators need to learn. Below are some basic bending techniques used and how our own SigmaBEND product can assist manufacturers to streamline their bending processes.
The complex geometry and nesting challenges for beveled parts has historically been a long process of trial and error. Despite wasted time and a high scrap rate, the part is still likely to require extensive manual clean-up. Bevels are edge cuts typically used to prepare steel plate parts for welding. Professional fabricators have long relied on CNC machines and nesting software to fine tune and automate the beveling process.
