SigmaTEK Product Manager, James Lindsey comments:
“Tube and pipe cutting has traditionally lagged in terms of sophisticated nesting; this all changes with the release of SigmaTUBE. Powerful automatic, manual, and true shape nesting speed tube and pipe cutting processes and maximize yield. This of course translates into money saved through waste reduction. The industry’s most efficient nesting is achieved by calculating the best possible combinations based on actual geometry while common-line cutting cuts shared edges at the same time reducing time and pierce points.”
