Fully integrated, automated nesting software for various materials and machines
Optimize use of your raw materials while boosting throughput
Trunest nesting software assists in the creation, optimization and manufacturing of nesting for numerous standard machines. TruNest works with a variety of materials including composites, wood, plastics, glass, sheet metal, cloth and leather.
Create highly efficient optimised nests utilizing any CAD data
- Trunest will import any CAD file created in any software package.
- Utilising advanced nesting algorithms Trunest generates extremely efficient nesting results.
- Take advantage of intelligent, cost-driven calculations to augment the value of your inventory.
Insert Trunest into your existing workflow and systems to increase automation
Share information with your ERP/MRP systems to extract orders and view production status reports. With this link you can track all material inventories and offcuts. TruNest uses advanced algorithms to improve cutting strategies to reduce machining times which then reduces cost. Besides out the box post processing, TruNest can generate NC code from custom post processors as well.
TruNest features for manufacturing
TruNest Contour, TruNest Multi-Tool, and TruNest Composites have many user-friendly features which allow you to optimise nesting, cutting and fabrication of parts.
Customized user experience
Filter data using a explicit facilities, machines or both.
NEW | Themes
TruNest has introduced fluent themes with 2 light and 2 dark colour variants.
TruNest has real time monitoring and data synching between the master and client database.
Server data syncs
The data synching between the server and the client allows users with enterprise solution access to experience greatly enhanced response times
NEW | Improved database syncing
Users can simultaneously extract data from a server-based database table as well as have additional control on the direction of the data syncs.
NEW | Time-based task execution
Schedule automated tasks on a repetitive basis
NEW | Date-range filtered display
Filter custom nest data according to date
NEW | CSV import and export
Once correctly configured, CSV data in non “en-US” format can be imported and exported via the action system or directly from the grid.
Scheduling and reporting
NEW | HTML workspace
Open PDF and ASCII text files from a built-in HTML viewer. This can be utilised for viewing all internal reports.
NEW | Exact-match filters
Exact match and wildcard searches are supported for any text string.
PNG file support
PNG files are created to visualize nests and parts. They are also used for insertion into custom reports.
Etching and labeling
Parts can be directly labelled using pen markers, sticky labels and etched information.
Automatic common line cutting
With TruNest automatically recognising common lines between parts you can avoid unnecessary cutting motions.
Head-down logic for pierce reduction
Optimising the starting cut position, you can reduce to a minimum the number of pierces on each nest.
Skeleton cutting/auto destruct cycle
Machine safety is increased and unloading of parts is easily handled with the use of skeleton cutting and an auto destruct cycle.
Optimized saw/waterjet cutting logic
The automatic tool and cut sequencing of saw and waterjet combination machines is supported by TruNest
Linear nesting of bar stock, extrusions and rods is supported through TruNest.
Tabs are automatically created to ensure that parts do not shift or fall out during the cutting process.
Flat ply splitting
A list is created of any ply that does not fit on the roll ensuring that more accurate nests are created.
Routing tools can be programmed to automatically run on 2 sides of a part and then automatically create the part repositions
NEW | Fly cutting
Collinear segments are joined to form a continuous cut segment to allow a speedy cut to grid patterns. This negates slowing down the machine head as well as changing the cut direction at every grid intersection.
All major brands of composite ply cutters are supporting by TruNest Composites including the likes fo Autometric, Eastman, GFM and many more.
Multiple machine setup
Depending on cutting time and which machines are currently under workload, TruNest will automatically select the next available machine for any pending jobs.
All major brands of punch presses are supported with TruNest Multi-Tool. This includes standard punch as well as custom punch tool shapes.
Automatic tool and cut sequence generation is supported by TruNest Multi-Tool for both manual and automatic saws.
Saw/waterjet combination cutters
Automatic tooling and cut sequence generation is supported for saw/waterjet combination machines by TruNest Multi-Tool.
TruNest has included several new post processors for the support of additional machines.
Features are available for the following cutters
• Combination Plasma/Oxy
• Combined Punch/Laser
