SigmaNEST, a provider of CAD/CAM, shop floor, and business software for the fabrication industry, has released version 24 of the software suite.
The new release gives fabricators the tools to reach higher productivity throughout the shop, while being easy and intuitive to use. SigmaNEST 24 suite helps users in three ways: Deeper software integration, a more effective UI, and CAD/CAM enhancements that drive predictably high-quality output at the machine.
A new SigmaBEND AP integration improves the automatic transfer of bending data for part creation, time estimation and quoting into the Connected Shop. Bend programmers will experience a faster workflow for importing parts within SigmaNEST along with rich part data such as number of bends, materials, and bending cycle time for single or batch parts. The data passes through to estimators for precise quoting and to production managers for easier oversight. Automating this data transfer eliminates user error from mistakes during manual entry.
The new SigmaTUBE 24 for SOLIDWORKS integrates completely with the SigmaNEST platform, including powerful new access to the jobs and inventory system, along with improved quoting, scheduling, and load management capabilities. The integration carries onto the shop floor with the TUBE Feedback application that enables machine operators to signal actual cutting times and reorder for miscut parts. The integration of tubular and linear materials to the database allows users to quote based on nested costs and to allocate scrap as available inventory. Finally, SigmaTUBE SW data can also link to business systems for cost estimation and reconciliation.
The new SimTrans 24 gives savvy customers and IT personnel the tools needed to customize the data connections that will streamline their operations. With SimTrans feedback export, users can configure the full array of data transactions to update the ERP system on demand.
SimTrans 24 now includes the SimTrans Studio to give customers the flexibility to inspect and diagnose their SigmaNEST/SimTrans environment. The Studio window gives users access to settings for app integrity, SigmaNEST license configurations, databases and plugins, hardware environment, and shortcuts. This central UI lets users quickly and reliably configure and customize their production environment to fit their needs.
