Plate Nesting

The CADMATIC Plate Nesting module is used to nest part geometries fully automatically and to optimize the use of raw plate materials to minimize material waste.

Key facts:
  • Can be used in interactive mode, automatic nesting mode or a combination of the two modes
  • Bridges, lead-in and lead-out, start holes, marking, text, bevels, net. weights, cutting lengths, rapid movement and time estimates are all included
  • The module outputs nesting sketches, optimized NC code and nest reports for the workshop
  • Includes ''smart'' remnant handling and automatic grouping of parts
  • Supports flame, plasma and laser cutting machines

The CADMATIC Plate Nesting module processes the CADMATIC Hull part geometries directly, but also accepts part geometries from other systems in standard DXF file format. The Plate Nesting module offers functionality for creating/modifying part geometries, remnant handling, automatic cutting path creation and generating the NC code for cutting machines.

Optional features for the CADMATIC Nesting module are Advanced Autonesting, Bevel-3: bevel cutting with a 3-torch flame cutting head, Bevel-1: bevel cutting with a single torch plasma head and Text Marking: marking text with inkjet and similar devices.
