SigmaNEST Profile Cutting CAD/CAM System

SigmaNEST is the most popular CAD/CAM system for programming CNC Profile Cutting and Punching machines. Because it directly interfaces with production management and sheet metal design, SigmaNEST ensures the best results in work piece quality, material utilization, machine motion optimization, material handling, accurate estimates and management information.

SigmaNEST's popularity is, in part, due to it boasting the best nesting technology in the industry. SigmaNEST servers can be utilised in nearly every industry - if you can cut it or punch it, we can nest it. And because SigmaNEST can be used on such an extensive variety of machines, you can purchase a single, economical solution that's flexible and scalable.

Material Utilization

Material cost is the biggest expense of manufacturing. With SigmaNEST's advanced automatic nesting you get the best yield from your raw material with the minimum amount of waste possible. You'll consume less material for the same production output, lowering cost per part and improving productivity. Complete material inventory management makes remnant nesting easy and facilitates overall inventory reduction. Part-in-part nesting reduces the rectangular cost per part.

Motion Optimization Reduces Cycle Time

By optimizing cutting paths, pierces and other time-consuming factors, SigmaNEST can increase the machine's capacity by minimizing the cutting cycle time while maintaining the highest work piece quality.

Nozzle Saver

SigmaNEST Nozzle Saver technology allows users to get the most out of their consumables.

Estimating (Quoting) Module

To ensure that all quotes are generated quickly and accurately, the quoting models the quoting module offers advanced. The module helps maintain communication between all those involved in the quoting process, allowing them to view quotes as they are generated so time is saved in tracking quote progress and information is updated in real time. As soon as a quote has been releases and accepted, the information in the quote can be converted directly into a SigmaNEST work order. No more re-entering data! This increases your competitive advantage by improving the pace and level of efficiency with which the process can be completed.

Once a work order is created, the parts can easily be managed in SigmaNEST and can even be combined with other work orders to increase processing efficiency.
