Nesting

This system provides a perfect combination of automatic, semi-automatic, and manual nesting, which provides great flexibility and optimum performance. The combination of automatic nesting, along with manual nesting functions like copy, moving, and rotating, proves to be a very powerful tool.

Lantek Expert Cut automatic nesting optimises part arrangement on the plate for maximum utilisation of parts and remnants. Lantek Expert Cut automatically detects remnants in the warehouse and prioritises their use prior to using a new sheet.

Technology

Lantek Expert Cut allows tables to be configured via material/thickness to define separation between parts and lead-ins/lead-outs for different types of contours and dependent on material/thickness and cutting quality. It is possible to common cut between different parts or limit to pairs of parts with micro-joints and pre-cuts. The system detects any errors in the design and machining and is completely automated.

All Lantek Expert Cut options are included in a single program. Within the same program and environment, the user can: design or import a part, consult the plate warehouse, execute cutting sequences, generate CNC programs, and calculate time and cost.
