Did You Know
Optimation Leads in Advancing the Technology

  • The first and only Multi-Dimensional Combinatorial Nesting engine.   This started very early and has continued to be improved since its inception in the late 80's.
  • The first and only to do Vision Emulation nesting.
  • The first Expert system-based nesting engine developed in the 70's.   This started with our first nest engine and the need to solve real world problems.
  • The first to do punch/contour and punch before laser or plasma or machining.
  • The first to focus on direct CAD interfaces and correcting common CAD errors.
  • The first to provide a single database solution eliminating the need for 2 CAD systems.
  • The only company with Machine Interfaces (which allows nearly limitless programmability to allow maximum machine function).

We believe a smooth connection between design and manufacturing is critical to success. These partners make that link seamless.

Inventor CAMLink

Inventor CAMLink

With the introduction of the Inventor CAMLink, Optimation has connected the Inventor inventory of 3D-modeled parts and the Optimation part programming and nesting engine. It's a technology "express lane," where parts are processed quickly, automatically, and with minimal human intervention. Without the multiple - and time consuming - steps of unfolding, exporting, converting, importing, filing and programming of singular parts, the Inventor Link cuts down the entire process and increases productivity. For more information read Automation & Integration - The Inventor Link.


OptiPro-Assembly

OptiPro-Assembly

OptiPro-Assembly provides an interface for Pro/ENGINEER assemblies to Optimation®. tool uses Pro-E/Creo technology and interface appearance to unfold 3D model assemblies and extract flat pattern parts. It identifies part-specific manufacturing information, i.e. part number, material, and assigns them to the appropriate flat pattern parts. Finally, it exports the geometry and parameters in the right file format to Optimation for automatic nesting.


Jerand

OptiPro-Part

OptiPro-Part provides an interface for Pro/ENGINEER sheet metal or solid parts to Optimation®. In less than one second per part OptiPro Part will transfer the geometry from Pro-Engineering/Creo to Optimation, transfer manufacturing parameters, i.e. material type & thickness, and create appropriate output including cut form.


Solidworks CAMLink

Solidworks CAMLink

The Solidworks Interface allows the user to select formed Solidworks part files and automatically have the parts unfolded and DXF files and Optimation® pre-programmed input files generated. This process runs in the background, enabling the user to continue working with minimal disruption.
