Nesting and cutting optimization software
30 years ago, Alma has developed the very first software designed for automatic nesting. Today, Alma markets both application software products (act/cube) and software components (Powernest, Opaline) that can be integrated into CAD/CAM software products developed by third-parties. In addition, act/cut software for 2D cutting and punching includes a powerful module for automatic and interactive nesting, which results in unique and unequalled performance in optimized nesting.
Software component for 2D-shape automatic nesting and metal sheet cutting
PowerNest is powerful and comprehensive library for automatic nesting. This library has been designed to develop optimization applications for 2D nesting or CAM cutting and can be used in a wide range of sectors: sheet metal working, packaging industry, shipbuilding, wood panel or plastic cutting.
As a pioneer since 30 years in the field of cutting optimization and automatic nesting of complex shapes for the cutting of materials in sheets, Alma provides CAD/CAM software developers with its unique experience through the PowerNest component.
Main advantages and benefits:
- Unique and unequalled performance in nesting
- Combination of numerous functions resulting in a complete interactive product (collision detection and anti-collision management, automatic nesting following a manually-initiated nesting)
- Support of various industry requirements
- Easy to integrate
- Possibility to benefit from Alma support and expertise for the component integration
