Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of industrial cutting systems and software, has announced low-cost subscription pricing for its ProNest LT CAD/CAM nesting software for light industrial cutting applications. Rather than purchasing the software outright, smaller companies and individuals who have air or conventional plasma and oxyfuel cutting machines can now subscribe to ProNest on a monthly, annual, or three-year basis.
Monthly pricing begins at $29.99 (U.S. Dollars) and subscribers have the freedom to start a subscription, add or remove users or features when needed, and cancel anytime. Hypertherm is currently offering a free seven-day trial subscription. More information is available here.
“ProNest LT provides a single software solution for businesses running smaller CNC tables. And though the software is designed to support any brand of plasma or oxyfuel, users will find the software delivers the ultimate performance when used with Hypertherm Powermax and MAXPRO systems giving the best possible cut quality, productivity, and efficiency,” said Derek Weston, product marketing manager for Hypertherm CAM software and controls. “It gives them access to professional grade cut quality at an affordable price in an easy to learn package that comes with unlimited technical support.”
In the past, small businesses including general fabricators, artistic metal workers, sign-makers, and HVAC duct shops, often had to rely on software that didn’t fully meet their needs. Technical support was often limited to self-help online. But with ProNest LT, subscribers get access to one-on-one live support from knowledgeable professionals, in addition to online resources such as video tutorials.
Also, expert-level cutting parameters based on the specific material type and thickness are included with the software setup, providing optimal part separations, leads, and kerf compensation for the job. Advanced automatic nesting is also available to ensure good material yield for those larger jobs.
