Overlanders added a Muratec 2548 turret-punch press with FG 1250 loader for a lights-out operation. The machine included SigmaNEST to run the entire process including automatic material handling. “When Muratec said they were going to use SigmaNEST it was a no-brainer that we should have it,” Engineering Manager, George Moore said.
In addition to instructing the machine where to punch the material, SigmaNEST provides material type/thickness and tooling requirements. Furthermore SigmaNEST tightly integrates with MRP systems for job scheduling.
“SigmaNEST’s CAD/CAM nesting capabilities and ease-of-use are just amazing.”
“I’ve used similar software for over 20 years. SigmaNEST’s nesting capabilities and ease-of-use are just amazing,” said Moore. “SigmaNEST is faster for punching and laser and I’m very impressed with the intelligence of the software.”
- Reduced machine set-up time boosts productivity while tighter nesting reduces scrap.
- The punch press with its material handling tower can run 24/7 unattended. Moore said: “It’s SigmaNEST that makes this all work.”
