New AVEVA Automated Plate Nesting optimises material use in ship and offshore construction

Number one tool for scrap optimisation delivers savings of up to 13% on raw material requirements compared to other third-party systems


Cambridge , UK - 26 March 2013: AVEVA today announced the release of the new AVEVA Automated Plate Nesting, a plug-in module to AVEVA Hull Detailed Design software.  It automatically and efficiently nests parts into raw steel plates, maximising the usage of the material and drastically reducing the scrap ratio associated with this process.


By minimising production waste in this manner, shipyards can achieve savings of up to 13% on raw material requirements when compared to using semi-automatic nesting or other third-party systems. AVEVA Automate   d Plate Nesting has already proven to be number one for scrap optimisation, following comparison tests.  In addition, this new module makes the nesting process far easier which leads to saving significant man-hours in production engineering.


The striking rise in steel prices over the last ten years has made the more efficient use of steel material a real priority for the shipbuilding and offshore market”, said Bruce Douglas, Senior VP Marketing & Product Strategy, AVEVA. “AVEVA Automated Plate Nesting provides an accurate and sophisticated plate cutting process that reduces waste and man-hours both of which have a direct benefit to the bottom line.”


AVEVA Automated Plate Nesting is a direct plugin to AVEVA Marine Hull Detailed Design, removing the need for costly interfaces or third party systems. It is compatible with the most recent version of AVEVA Marine.
