How Different Nesting Technologies Address Material Efficiency | Video

The art of arranging parts on a sheet of metal is known as “nesting.”

Many nesting software technologies focus exclusively on the best way to layout parts to minimize material waste.

The reality is that this is a far more complicated – dynamic – problem. ┬áMost manufacturers contend with not only material usage, but machine efficiency, schedules demand, part and order flow, and unplanned demand.

This brief video breaks down the approaches of list-driven nesting and cost-driven nesting to illustrate the impact they have on the overall production and achieving material and machine efficiency and production demands.
