SigmaTEK Releases SigmaTUBE X1



SigmaTEK Systems has released the latest version of its automated tube-cutting software, SigmaTUBE X1.

SigmaTUBE helps tube fabricators complete mission-critical work. It is a complete tube cutting solution for 4-, 5- and 6-axis cutting machines that automatically processes and programs entire assemblies. SigmaTUBE is fully integrated inside SOLIDWORKS and is capable of programming all tube shapes and sizes.

The new Best Stick Nesting feature is a 1-D nesting option that gives the best overall yield possible based on stock selection. Either select Best Stick Fixed to use a single length stock or choose Best Stick Mixed to allow mixing and matching.

SigmaTUBE X1 has also expanded the functionality of the new Best Stick Nesting feature into the Nest Calculator tool. The new SigmaTUBE Nest Calculator is a material optimization tool that calculates the ideal stock length for a task. Using the minimum and maximum length and allowed increment, the calculator displays a complete stock comparison, which shows users the lengths that yield the highest utilization percentage. This is also a tool that fabricators can use for quoting, to determine how much stock is needed to complete a job prior to programming.

SigmaTUBE X1 also offers a Single Pierce Open Section Toolpath for channel and angle profiles. This option interpolates cuts on sharp corners, allowing a single toolpath to be used for the end cuts. Basically, this option provides a single cut rather than multiple passes, decreasing cut times.

Dakota Baird, SigmaTUBE Product Manager, stated, "Our SigmaTUBE customers drive the direction of our product and we are committed to providing users with the best possible solution for their needs."
