SigmaNEST utilizes all machine cutting/punching functions and technologies, ensuring peak performance while integrating with other software and systems to optimize processes.
SigmaNEST for Defense
Precision, Reliability, and Speed: SigmaNEST has the functionality, breadth, and depth for assuring highly accurate cutting of load-bearing parts and sheet metal panels in trucks and armored vehicles. Government suppliers, defense contractors, and military R&D centers depend on SigmaNEST to deliver superior software that meets the demanding requirements of the defense industry.
A few ways SigmaNEST nesting software supports the Defense Industry
- Automatic pulsing
- Power ramping
- Variable feedrates
- Cluster punch with tool substitution capability
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.
