Nesting in milling
The Nesting add-on allows to optimize the positioning of multiple parts milled in the same raw material plate. The main purpose of it is to produce the highest number of parts, saving raw materials, depending on the scraps thickness between the parts.
A sorted by color preview enables the operator to check the whole display suggested by the software before starting the milling cycles. Partially milled plates re-use is available, optimum material use is always reached!
Nesting in Wire EDM
Nesting add-on is also available for Wire EDM application. The purpose of optimization and material economy is the same.
In this case, profiles are only punch shapes – in two dimensions – and threading holes have to be defined, then duplicated.
