Automated nesting software helps companies of all sizes create the most efficient markers possible. These systems analyze multiple nesting algorithms to arrive at a marker with the greatest material utilization. They are typically more efficient than manual marker making because they run for hours, without operator intervention, until they arrive at the most efficient result.
Do you currently use or are you considering purchasing a computer-controlled automatic cutting system to cut single ply or low plies of flexible goods? If so, you may need better control over your electronic cut file (CAD) data and you might realize tremendous improvements in cut part quality using CutWorks® cut file preparation software.
Pattern design software offered by most companies meets the minimum criteria. It enables the pattern designer to create and modify patterns. However, the best systems are easy to learn, easy to use on a daily basis, contain powerful time-saving functions that drastically improve productivity and are supported by professionals who understand what is required to output a pattern that will succeed in production. Beyond individual features and functionality, what else should you consider before making a pattern design software purchase?
Because carbon materials are expensive, sometimes require long lead times and are often difficult to procure, maximizing the number of cut parts from a single piece of carbon material is imperative. While assembly of composite parts remains a largely manual process, advances in automated nesting, cutting and kitting systems help improve product quality, maximize the use of costly materials and minimize errors.
