Hypertherm, a manufacturer of advanced cutting systems, recently announced a number of feature enhancements to its ProNest® nesting software, making it even easier for companies that fabricate or cut material to increase the cut quality, productivity, and profitability of their operations.
Major enhancement includes the addition of OneClick, a powerful production module that automates various tasks in a job. The user sets up actions required completing a job just once and OneClick does the rest, with limited intervention.
ProNest Version 10.1 also includes Data Sync, a new module which allows customers to add and update plates from their Material Requirements Planning (MRP)/ Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to ProNest’s Plate Inventory. Data Sync will routinely synchronize your MRP/ERP plates with ProNest’s Plate Inventory. So, as soon as a new plate is entered into the MRP/ERP system, the plate will be available for use in ProNest. Data Sync even ensures that changes to existing MRP/ERP plates are quickly carried over to ProNest inventory plates, enabling customers to always use the most up-to-date plate information.
Better quality and time saved
Hypertherm is also announcing significant enhancements in support of its True Bevel technology. ProNest plays a critical role via the optional bevel module that now includes many new features and the True Bevel cut charts. These enhancements will save customers who bevel their parts a tremendous amount of set up time while improving the quality of beveled parts. “We believe the features found in this version further differentiate ProNest among the CAD/CAM options available today and make it even easier for customers to run an efficient and profitable operation,” says Derek Weston, Product Marketing Manager for Hypertherm’s software team.
