Ma­jor up­grade for au­to­mated cut­ting soft­ware

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH - DE­TAILS, WWW.HYPERTHERM.COM/CAM

HYPERTHERM HAS re­leased of ProNest 2019, a ma­jor ver­sion up­date of its ad­vanced CAD/CAM nest­ing soft­ware for au­to­mated cut­ting. This new re­lease con­tains more than a dozen new fea­tures and en­hance­ments de­signed to make cus­tomers more ef­fi­cient and prof­itable.

New fea­tures in­clude:

• Raster to vec­tor con­ver­sion to quickly con­vert .jpeg and sim­i­lar images into CAD files for cut­ting.

• Fly cut­ting for faster laser cut­ting on thin ma­te­rial, and the abil­ity to pierce with­out slow­ing down or stop­ping the cut­ting head.

• De­sign2Fab 6 in­te­gra­tion so cus­tomers cut­ting sheet metal can ac­cess fit­tings di­rectly from ProNest. • Drag ro­ta­tion for faster man­ual nest­ing and even bet­ter plate util­i­sa­tion, es­pe­cially when nest­ing around the con­tours of larger parts.

“Re­gard­less of cut­ting method – plasma, laser, wa­ter­jet, oxy­fuel, or com­bi­na­tion punch – ProNest 2019 builds on an al­ready strong foun­da­tion to en­sure cus­tomers have the fea­tures they need to im­prove their pro­duc­tiv­ity and prof­itabil­ity,” said Tom Still­well, Sr. Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing As­so­ciate for Hypertherm CAD/CAM soft­ware prod­ucts. “At the same time, this new ver­sion con­tin­ues to in­clude fea­tures that more fully au­to­mate the cut­ting process and ex­pand user ca­pa­bil­i­ties through smart fac­tory and In­dus­try 4.0 in­te­gra­tion with ERP/MRP sys­tems and a host of other sup­port­ing soft­ware.” Hypertherm says ProNest soft­ware is se­lected by more cut­ting ma­chine man­u­fac­tur­ers than any other brand. It is the only soft­ware with full sup­port for Hypertherm SureCut tech­nol­ogy, in­clud­ing True Hole, Rapid Part, and True Bevel, plus easy setup, and op­ti­mised process pa­ram­e­ters.

In ad­di­tion, Hypertherm is re­leas­ing up­grades to its ProNest LT and ProNest LTS soft­ware for lighter pro­duc­tion en­vi­ron­ments. Users with an ac­tive soft­ware subscription can up­grade to the new ver­sion of their re­spec­tive prod­uct at no ad­di­tional charge and con­tinue to re­ceive unlimited tech­ni­cal sup­port, and other ben­e­fits.
