Planit, developer of the Radan sheet-metal CAD/CAM software, has published a whitepaper on modern nesting.

The whitepaper – entitled ‘Modern Nesting, Changing The Way You Think About Nesting’ – will show manufacturers how to select the most appropriate nesting program for their business.

The whitepaper, available to download for free from the Radan website, focuses on a variety of topics, including: automatic nesting; nesting for the manufacturing industry; nesting solutions; multi-threaded code; future trends; and integrating nesting with MRP/ERP.

The paper shows how nesting is moving away from its traditional roots and looks at its value as an integrated part of an overall ERP or process planning system, and why managers need to consider the effect a nest has downstream.

Nesting parts for the cost- and time-conscious manufacturing industry has moved on from the original concept of nesting, which was simply the geometric problem of arranging parts on a sheet to minimise waste, according to Planit.

‘Modern Nesting, Changing The Way You Think About Nesting’ was written to ensure that manufacturers can benefit from what modern nesting can give them and looks at the skills required of machine programmers and operators in order for their nester to give them a competitive edge.
