Sheet Metal Program

What is the definition of Sheet Metal Program?

Sheet Metal Program is used to dynamically nest parts to a single sheet of raw material. Optimal means that you get the parts you want in exact quantities, at the lowest possible cost; lowest cost includes material efficiency, machine efficiency, schedule adherence, order completion and all other cost considerations.

In general terms, nesting software automatically and efficiently arranges the required quantities of individual parts to be produced on sheets or plates of stock material. It does this by using part geometry from CAD files to output CNC code that controls a cutting machine.

Optimation® Sheet Metal Program creates automatic CNC nests and CNC part programs for all CNC turret punch, laser, plasma, router, waterjet, and knife fabrication. No other nesting Program serves the breath or depth of fabrication tools as Optimation nesting Program.
