Fiber laser and CO2 laser customers are reporting increased productivity, ease of use, and high quality technical support when using Hypertherm’s ProNest CAM nesting software. ProNest includes many standard features and optional modules geared specifically to laser applications. In addition, the CAM software contains modules focused on business system integration to support increased productivity.

Greg Riegel, laser operator at Felling Trailers for the past five years, just began using ProNest’s optional Work Order Processing module. The module, which is connected to the company’s MRP software, provides automatic data transfer of work order information to ProNest on a scheduled basis. “It is really a time saver. No more going in to CAD and getting parts. The work orders come up with the number of parts needed for that job. No room for operator error. We always get the exact number of parts ordered!”

Ease of use is another key factor driving productivity. Scott Jones, a mechanical design engineer at Container Handling Systems says, “The software was set up with a familiar looking interface that was simple to learn, if you had any experience using typical Windows style products. The demo took us through a typical nest creation from start to finish and helped the programmers grasp the concept in less than an hour. We had never used a laser at our company before, but upon completing the product demonstration all of us in the room felt confident that this wasn’t going to be an intimidating endeavor for our company.”

Also sharing feedback on ProNest’s ease of use and the quality of Hypertherm’s software support and ongoing updates, is Richard Webb of Loftis Steel & Aluminum. Webb’s company has used ProNest CAM software for nearly a decade. “We have had very good results for programming our two lasers. It’s easy to use and learn. When faced with programming questions, answers are very quick and all the people we have dealt with have been very helpful. When upgrading from one version to the next the changes have been seamless with no down time."

ProNest has been the industry’s leading nesting software for two decades, offering best-in-class performance and reliability with a straight-forward, easy-to-use design. ProNest is also a component of Hypertherm’s Built for Business™ Integrated Cutting Solutions, providing support for True Hole™, True Bevel™ and Rapid Part™ technologies.
