Expected to be available in early 2010, SigmaNEST V10 powered by VoluMill will combine SigmaNEST’s ability to optimize parts nesting for minimum waste and minimum machine movement with VoluMill’s technology that generates toolpaths with smooth machining motions and minimum force on the spindle and cutting tool. VoluMill toolpaths reduce cycle times and extend the life of cutting tools.
“The combined system, although primarily targeted for wood routing, will work just as effectively for aluminum part routing,” said Glenn Binder, SigmaTEK’s vice president of sales. “The inclusion of VoluMill further enhances SigmaNEST’s pocket-milling capability. Furthermore, the software programming is intuitive, making it easy to produce programs for production.”
