CINCINNATI, OH - SigmaTEK Systems says its CNC router and milling machine CAD/CAM nesting software SigmaNEST Version 10 represents a leap in material optimization and fabrication process efficiency.

SigmaNEST 10 employs sophisticated heuristics and advanced algorithms to optimize part yield, maximize material usage, accelerate machine cycle time and produce higher quality parts, according to the wood indsutry software firm's president, Ben TerreBlanche,

“An example of what makes version 10 special is improved cutterpath planning that reduces machine cutting cycle time and consumable wear,"  TerreBlanche says. "

New functionality also includes BHQ (Bolt Hole Quality) technology, specially designed for plasma cutting machines,  to improves edge quality by addressing material melting issues inherent to plasma cutting.

"By tightly controlling this cutting process BHQ produces the best hole quality eliminating clean-up or rework,” TerreBlanche says.
