Hypertherm Announces Significant Enhancements to ProNest 2012 Software, Including OneClick, Data Sync, and Bevel Support

Press release date: Dec 18, 2012

HANOVER, NH—Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of advanced cutting systems, today 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 enhancements include the addition of OneClick, a powerful production module that automates various tasks in a job. The user sets up actions required to complete 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 MRP/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 changes to existing MRP/ERP plates are quickly carried over to ProNest inventory plates, so customers are always able to use the most up-to-date plate information.

Hypertherm is also announcing significant enhancements in support of its True Bevel technology. ProNest plays a role in this via its optional bevel module which 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,” said Derek Weston, Product Marketing Manager for Hypertherm’s software team.
