Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
CAD/CAM Connect, the online destination for mechanical engineers and machinists to research, buy and save on CAD/CAM products and services, has teamed up with SigmaTEK Systems to offer one the most advanced CAM nesting softwares on the market.
“We recognized that plate steel nesting is a different beast. We wanted a company who understands it best and is passionate about making their clients successful. That's why we are excited to team up with SigmaTEK", says Ken Wilson, CEO of CAD/CAM Connect.
When working with steel, SigmaNest can bring in any 3D CAD model and apply tool path and cut sequencing, lead-ins and lead-outs, part stability, beveling, common-line cutting, and how to fit the most part shapes on to a given sheet of material. This all impacts part quality, cutting efficiency, material maximization, and tool life.
The software determines how to best cut the material to yield the highest quality parts in the shortest amount of time. “We’ve focused research and development in this area to really set our software apart from other systems, whether that be a plasma, laser, punch, oxyfuel, waterjet, router, knife, tube/pipe and combination cutting machines”, says company President & CEO and Founder Ben TerreBlanche.
“There are a lot CAM nesting packages on the market, and it’s somewhat confusing for people to determine which one is best for their needs. SigmaTEK has an excellent track record of customer successes and industry knowledge. The addition of SigmaNEST rounds out our CAM offerings of Milling/Lathe/WireEDM and Nesting, “ says Wilson.
