CAD/CAM Software

Using Software To Better Run Your Shop

In today’s manufacturing environment, software has evolved. No longer designed for simple NC code and nesting parts for the best material utilization, it has become an increasingly useful and necessary tool for any production facility. Look for software modules which can be tailored to your needs and can create an ideal interaction between machine, control system, and production software.

Advanced CAD/CAM Nesting Software for Automated Cutting

ProNest 2015 includes a simplified and intuitive user interface; tabs to quickly navigate between, insert, or reorder nests; and more standard features like OneClick™, a powerful production module that automates various job tasks, and Custom Remnants™, a tool for users to enter the dimensions of an irregular plate or remnant and then complete a nest.
Featuring an automatic nesting process and the ability to export nests to a DXF file without installing a special DXF Polyline setup or changing machines, ProNest 2015 from Hypertherm contains more embedded cut process expertise in the NC code than any other software.

CAD/CAM Software Maximizes Welding and Cutting Productivity

Release 1.2 provides improved CAD functionality with a standard shape library that amplifies programming productivity using an extensive collection of pre-defined part geometries.
By making programming and nesting more efficient and easier to use, powerful Columbus III™ version 1.2 CAD/CAM software from ESAB optimizes material utilization and workflow. 

New Software Makes Fabrication of Pressure Vessels, Spools and Nozzles Easier

HGG ProShell Software complements chuck-style HGG Pressure Vessel Machines that combine plasma and oxyfuel processes for 3D steel-profile cutting capability, eliminating the need for laying out lines on shells, grinding a bevel, as well as additional welding after the holes are cut to provide a perfect fit-up.
With HGG ProShell Software from HGG Profiling Equipment, shops can easily import part program files from CAD/CAM design systems, design product profiles and profiling information, view 3D profiles and efficiently divide them into available raw materials for nesting.
