  •   Leverage multi-torch nesting strategies optimized for automatic and manual torch spacing
  • Achieve significant decreases in pierce quantities with chain cutting and bridge cutting technologies and extend torch tip life
  • Pre-pierce on thicker material to reduce time in gas changes and also extend torch tip life
  • Easy lead-in placement to reduce part distortion due to heat buildup

Cad Integration

  • Automatic processing of flat pattern data from 3D CAD systems like SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk Inventor, PTC Creo, Siemens NX as well as IGES, DXF, DWG
  • Supports more CAD file formats for import than any other nesting solution

BHQ™ Module

SigmaNEST BHQ™ improves on market leading hole quality cutting strategies to not only offer bolt hole quality, but optimize for taper, roundness and machine run time in the process. Automatic lead-in lookup based on hole size and material thickness, process and power. Customizable parameters to achieve edge quality that fits your needs BHQ can be used with mixed hardware configurations. Achieve the quality you need with any high-definition-ready thermal cutting system without investing in a new machine.

  • Automatic power and feed rate selection
  • Intelligent management of height control systems
  • Precision lead-ins
  • Produce cleaner parts
  • Reduced taper
  • Improved cylindricity
