Nesting Software helps reduce raw material consumption.

Press Release Summary:

NestLib v19 provides high-speed algorithms for automated true shape nesting. By nesting 2D shapes on sheets, manufacturers can optimize shop productivity. Overlap detection utility saves material and tool wastage by detecting layout errors due to variation in part/sheet geometries, while module for tube nesting optimally cuts smaller tubes from larger cylindrical/rectangular tube stock. Total cost computation feature instantly computes total cost of inventory consumed.

Geometric Software Solutions Releases NestLib v19

Leader in automated true shape nesting maximizes shop floor efficiencies
and reduces raw material consumption

MUMBAI, India, November 1, 2006 - Geometric Software Solutions (BSE - 532312, NSE - GEOMETRIC), a leader in product lifecycle management (PLM) services and technologies, announces the release of NestLib v19. NestLib provides optimized, high speed and robust algorithms for fully automated true shape nesting. By efficiently nesting two-dimensional shapes on sheets, manufacturers can maximize shop productivity and reduce material costs.

NestLib v19 incorporates many significant module enhancements, including:
o Overlap detection utility:
Saves material and tool wastage by actively detecting layout errors due to variation in part/sheet geometries.

o New module for Tube nesting:
Optimally cuts smaller tubes from larger commercially available cylindrical/rectangular tube stock.

o Tolerance Support for oversized parts:
Accurately nests slightly oversized parts within user limits - useful for composites industry

o APIs in C# for .NET framework and 64-bit compatibility:
Accelerates NestLib integration into latest systems

o Up to 20-30% reduction in overall nesting time

o Total cost computation feature:
Instantly computes total cost of the inventory consumed - also works as a deciding factor in Inventory Forecasting module (IFM)

Licensed by over seventy worldwide Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), NestLib is recognized as one of the fastest and most efficient nesting libraries in the industry. The NestLib portfolio consists of a base module and a set of optional advanced modules, each providing a specialized functionality.

Leading global manufacturers and CAD/CAM solution providers across the leather, woodworking, construction, agricultural, shipping, glass, plastics, automotive, architecture, aerospace, printing and packaging industries employ NestLib to maximize shop floor efficiencies and reduce raw material consumption.

NestLib is available as a static library, Dynamic linked library (DLL), and COM DLL. It also supports .NET framework. NestLib is available on Microsoft Windows (including 64-bit), Sun Solaris and Linux platforms and can be ported to Mac OS on demand. Contact for further details.
