Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software facilitates automated manufacturing processes by controlling machinery. Commonly referred to as nesting software, CAM software is often used in conjunction with computer-aided design (CAD).
As an industry leader in plasma cutting, Hypertherm has developed several nesting software solutions for CNC sheet and plate cutting applications. Hypertherm ProNest® nesting software offers the right level of capability to suit most needs, whether it’s advanced cutting in a production environment, or fabricating parts in a machine shop:
- ProNest – Advanced Enables fabricators and manufacturers to increase material savings, raise productivity, lower operating costs, and optimize part quality through the highest level of cutting expertise./li>
- ProNest LT – Intermediate Designed for light industrial, mechanized cutting in production environments, it is a single software solution for all conventional plasma and oxyfuel cutting machines.
- ProNest LTS – Entry-Level Developed for light industrial, mechanized cutting in machine shop environments, it offers a software solution for one cutting machine, equipped for conventional plasma or oxyfuel.
Hypertherm software works with virtually any type of CNC plasma cutting systems, using a universal export (interchange) format called DXF. Drawings created in a DXF format can be easily imported into most plasma cutting systems.
