Nesting Software Provides Improved Efficiency



SigmaTEK Systems, a CAD/CAM nesting solution provider, has released the latest version of its software, SigmaNEST X1.3. "With SigmaNEST X1.3, fabricators can expect to see increased speed and quality as the software allows their machines to achieve peak performance," said a company spokesperson.

SigmaNEST X1.3 introduces new innovations, including:

  • CAD repair geometry
  • PDF and image import modules
  • Task parameter dialog box
  • Enhanced features for punching
  • Common line punch features
  • SigmaNEST help center.

SigmaNEST is now available as a 64-bit program, giving SigmaNEST access to more memory on computers with a 64-bit operating system. In addition, nesting improvements now allow the HD TrueShape Plus nesting engine to operate faster and more efficient than ever and provide the best yield possible.

SigmaNEST X1.3 also contains an advanced pre-form punching feature, which protects parts with formed features from damage by reordering the interfering hits, designating a "crush zone" around each forming hit and comparing it to the station diameter of nearby hits. If these zones overlap, the nearby hits are designated as pre-form punching hits, which can be reordered in Tool Sort. This update allows for greater efficiency and less wasted valuable material.

Jim Lindsey, Director and Product Manager at SigmaTEK, believes the new release will enable companies to improve efficiencies and is a significant step towards complete automation. "Our SigmaNEST customers and partners drive our product direction," Lindsey said. "With SigmaNEST X1.3, we continue our commitment to our customers. This release covers improvements for every type of user in the areas of nesting, NC functions, user interface and help files."
