Getting the design from your blueprint or sketch should be an easy process

Producing parts with a shape cutting machine should be a very easy process. At IES we use Centricut Edge, and Voyager controllers exclusively, due to their exceptional performance and ease of use. While the standard shape library is adequate for many users, there will come a time when you need to program more complicated shapes, nest numerous parts automatically on a sheet of plate, or quickly and accurately determine your costs to burn out an assortment of parts.

At IES we have used many different computer aided design and drafting systems to generate part geometry, nest the parts on a sheet of plate, and generate the numerical code required by the cutting machine controller to provide motion and secondary operation commands. After conducting extensive research (including being a distributor for many competing products), we choose SigmaNEST exclusively as our one stop solution for optimized automation.
