Clear main view of the program in modern Windows style
Clear input mask of the cutting geometries.
Determination of the technologies of the machining steps as well as the geometry properties.
Multiple DXF files can be used. For this purpose, each one is loaded into its own clamping position.
Input mask for managing the laser parameters
A machining sequence can be created for multiple traversal of the contour.
Optimized project database
The main purpose of the NestCut database is to centrally manage the DXF/SPL files and link them to the cutting parameters depending on the material type, thickness and size. The NestCut database can be installed both on the control and on a separate programming station.
The program is used to create NC data for splitting as well as applying chamfers to PCD probes using laser machines. DXF geometry files are used as the basis for creating the NC data, in which the geometry data of the blanks to be split with the parts to be cut out are contained. The parts to be cut out must be drawn larger than the required parts by the laser spot radius, so that the outline contour represents the laser center path when the parts are cut out. The edges of directly adjacent parts thus lie directly on top of each other. The arrangement of the parts on the blank can be done either manually in a suitable CAD program or automatically with a suitable nesting program be carried out.
The program supports the following work steps:
- Reading in the DXF files
- Optimize contour trains for faster machining
- Automatic generation of the traverse paths for ripping blanks and applying chamfers to the back of the blank
- Manage the laser technologies
- Management of multiple clamping positions
