SigmaNEST features allow you to quickly and easily create detailed drawings, create efficient nested part layouts, effortlessly produce NC programs, generate timely and accurate reports and quotes, and maximize production and inventory control.
Although the software comes complete with an easy-to-use built-in CAD package, SigmaNEST also interfaces directly with external CAD systems using DXF, DWG, IGES, CDL, and HPGL translators. All parts are saved in a powerful relational database structure that enables fast and accurate retrieval of previously programmed parts.
SigmaNEST’s true shape nesting algorithm supports parts in parts, multiple torches, and remnant nesting. True shape nesting gives you the power to:
- Reduce remnant material inventory
- Speed up NC programming
- Improve material utilization
- Improve time and cost estimates
SigmaNEST ensures efficient use of cutting consumables such as gas, nozzles, and optics. Cutting machine throughput is dramatically increased with SigmaNEST’s unique tip-up part avoidance, pierce reduction, and automatic continuous cutting technology. SigmaNEST also supports part marking, chain and common line cutting, and beveling.
SigmaNEST’s online transaction processing capabilities allow seamless integration with existing Production Scheduling and MRP systems. This facilitates online transaction processing of work orders or bills of material, while managing order status and material inventory.
