Productivity and ROI: Why Leading CAD/CAM-using manufacturers count on SigmaNEST®

Cincinnati, OH - Mar 05, 2018 - SigmaTEK’s software products continue to deliver productivity and ROI gains for leading manufacturers and fabricators worldwide.   Its primary nesting software, SigmaNEST, automates manual CAD work typically done before nesting, driving results previously unseen by manufacturers. Through unmatched nesting efficiency and speed, SigmaNEST leads to increased productivity and ROI, including:

  • decreased waste – on average, customers save 4% on material when switching to SigmaNEST;
  • increased capacity – average cut times increase by 20%;
  • increased efficiency – programming is five times faster, on average, saving considerable man-hours.  

Powered by the manufacturing industry’s newest and most advanced CAD/CAM nesting engine, SigmaNEST reflects nearly three decades of continuous, specialized software optimization, helping fabricators to boost cutting machine throughput and performance. As machine experts, SigmaNEST developers customize SigmaNEST to fully maximize features and functionality of cutting, punching and bending machines.

SigmaNEST next-generation software is designed to connect systems that are most critical to manufacturing operations. SigmaNEST follows industry standards and best practices, so no CAD/CAM data is compromised and users can start with data from multiple sources.

Native file formats supported include:

-   AutoDesk Inventor   - SpaceClaim

-   SOLIDWORKS          - Onshape

-   Siemens NX             - CATIA

-   Solid Edge               - DWG, DXF, IGES, DSTV, STEP

-   PTC Creo

When a user imports a part or assembly into SigmaNEST, it recognizes all features assigned in the 3D model. SigmaNEST can even sort through non-fabricated parts of an assembly (like bolts or electronics) to keep only the parts that need to be profile cut. Parts for fabrication are automatically unfolded. Users can also nest whole assemblies with automatic bevel recognition.

Key Process: Bevel

One of the processes most dependent on proper file data transfer is beveling. SigmaNEST engineers understand this. SigmaNEST has invested countless man hours in developing critical technology to ensure bevels are imported correctly as part and assembly files move from design to production.
