An investment in a CNC plasma cutting system can provide the owner with many advantages.  While there many advantages to purchasing a high quality, automated system such as an EZCutCNC CNC plasma cutting system, one of the most significant and critical advantages is that our systems come with exceptional CAD/CAM software.  Without high-quality CAD/CAM software, your system will not be able to automate operations and none of those potential benefits will be able to be realized.  EZCutCNC provides clients with state-of-the-art CAD/CAM software, complete with multiple-part grid nesting which we believe takes our systems to the next level.  Below are 3 advantages of CNC plasma cutting nesting that will have you wanting to take advantage of multiple-part grid nesting as soon as possible!

 

3 Advantages of CNC Plasma Cutting Nesting

  1. Reduces Material Waste
    • CAD/CAM software with multiple-part grid nesting will take into account the dimensions of multiple parts that need to be cut and find a way to fit them (envision rotating various parts on a sheet to fit as many as possible, like a puzzle) on a sheet of material with as little material waste as possible.  This is ideal because it can be less expensive to buy larger sheets of material and then maximize your parts on that sheet. Stop unnecessary material waste and get the most out of your material sheets with nesting software.
  2. Increases Efficiency
    • While multiple-part grid nesting is possible with handheld plasma cutting, it is extremely time-consuming and labor-intensive.  When you use software that automates cutting and nesting it saves a significant amount of your time.  And, not only does it save your time but it expedites the fabrication process, allowing you to be more productive and ultimately enhance your profitability.
  3. Saves Money
    • As already mentioned, multiple-part grid nesting saves money by reducing material waste.  By getting more out of each sheet of material you save money.  Additionally, you will save money by reducing the wear and tear on your plasma cutting system with more efficient nests.  And, because your cutting process is more efficient and effective, you reduce the need for excessive shop labor which can also save your business money in the long run.
