Success Story: CRD Selects SigmaTUBE
CRD Manufacturing creates space frames for NASA, frames for Monster Trucks, along with similar structures for other customers.
In an effort to advance laser tube cutting capabilities, production efficiency, and slash scrap, company owner Tim Carroll began investigating new laser tube cutting software programs.
It was vital that the new laser tube cutting software satisfy the following:
- Interface directly with SOLIDWORKS
- Be easy to use
- Be flexible to drive the company’s custom-built laser tube cutting machine
After benchmarking multiple tube cutting software programs, SigmaTUBE from SigmaTEK Systems emerged as the clear winner.
“We evaluated three tube nesting packages,” explained Carroll. “We quickly found that SigmaTUBE gave us the versatility to go from a CAD model directly to NC data and out to the cutting machine. SigmaTUBE eliminates time-consuming steps of having to cut the first tube, send it out to the machine, make changes, export it out of SOLIDWORKS and into yet another software program.”
