SigmaNEST is Nesting Perfect

Use less material through higher nest yield. 

Inteligent Nesting

  • Advanced algorithms used in SigmaNEST software optimize material savings with using part rotation, mirroring, and more
  • Nesting strategies for complex machines account for hold downs, clamps, repositioning, bevel cutting, and secondary processes
  • Effortlessly nest parts for specialized operations and materials like right angle shear, drop door part ejection, and common line cutting
  • Automated choices for best sheet size and sheet priorit

Powerful Inventory Management

  • Remnant Nesting promotes a First-In First-Out approach to help maintain lean inventory
  • Track inventory status and cost through integrated stock and remnant material database
  • Real-time sheet and heat number tracking
  • SigmaNEST integrates with exisiting ERP/MRP systems to ensure accurate sheet quantities
  • Easily identify customer consigned sheets or reserved inventory
  • Quickly search sheet, part, and work order lists

Efficiency and Savings

Experience a variety of options to reduce pierces, save cutting time, and accurately cut your parts.

Consequently, this comprehensive approach results in ROI by optimizing material utilization, machine motion, manpower, and data management.

  • Motion :  Faster cutting times to increase capacity and efficieny
  • Material : Smart nesting saves 4% average on new and remnant use
  • Machines : Central control gives you more flexibility and simplicity
  • Manage : Integrate operational data for better insight and control
  • Manpower : Faster programming and automation to empower your team
