SigmaNEST delivers advances in efficiency

SigmaTEK Systems LLC announces the upcoming release of SigmaNEST Version 10. Powered by an advanced nesting engine, SigmaNEST 10 employs heuristics and advanced algorithms to optimize part yield, maximize material usage, accelerate machine cycle time, and produce quality parts.

Ben TerreBlanche, SigmaTEK president and chief executive officer, said, “An example of what makes version 10 special is improved cutterpath planning that reduces machine cutting cycle time and consumable wear extending tool life. New functionality also includes BHQ (Bolt Hole Quality) technology. Specially designed for plasma cutting machines, BHQ improves edge quality by addressing material melting issues inherent to plasma cutting. By tightly controlling this cutting process BHQ produces the best hole quality, eliminating clean-up or rework.”

Other SigmaNEST version 10 enhancements include:

  • Tight integration with MRP and other manufacturing systems to catalog material remnants for future job runs

  • SolidWorks Enterprise PDM integration

  • Shop floor control with Color Offload and Load Manager
