The Need For Speed
Laser tube fabrication required nesting software capable of increasing cutting speed and reducing scrap. Three nesting programs were evaluated.
“SigmaTUBE eliminates steps of cutting the first tube, sending it to the machine, making changes, exporting it out of SOLIDWORKS and into yet another program,” said Tim Carroll.
“SigmaTUBE allows us to meet the rigid time and quality requirements that our customers have come to expect.”
CRD clients often require copies of files contained in an assembly. Because many projects consist of a complex mesh of tubes, this often means 200 or more associated files.
CRD can now nest 200 unique files over the course of 10 or 20 lengths of material eliminating the need to create individual program data to send out to the machine.
“The seamless SigmaTUBE / SOLIDWORKS integration allows us to make changes more quickly and accurately,” said Carroll. “SigmaTUBE allows us to meet the rigid time and quality requirements our customers have come to expect.”
