SigmaNEST for Industrial and Agricultural Machinery
SigmaNEST is ideal for nesting the large parts requiring strength and stability for land-moving and agricultural equipment. Effective nesting reduces costly scrap material and cutting time, as well as prolongs the life of machine consumables for oxyfuel, plasma and laser cutting machines.
A few ways SigmaNEST nesting software supports Industrial and Agricultural Machinery
- Advanced nesting and NC pathing for multi-torch plate machines for reduced cutting time and production cost
- Sophisticated nesting and NC pathing for common line cutting and further optimization of motion and materials
- Variety of pre-piercing capabilities for heavy plate, including custom pre-pierce shapes for best part quality per machine and material requirements
- Revision and part tracking database to easily locate existing static nests using the most current part and reducing engineering time and manufacturing errors
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.
