The students/ industry personnel would learn the below listed points in the Nesting – Productivity Improvement Lab:-
i. Automatic part arrangement for nesting, and support for manual part arrangement.
ii. Automatic or manual cutting path definition
iii. Automatic beveling/ bridging / common cutting / multi-touching
iv. Marking and punching at curve surfaces
v. Direct N/C code generation (EIA/ESSI)
vi. Import from 2D drawings and export of drawing files into CADWIN base and automatic generation of production drawing on the steel plate.
vii. Generation of production information including data for cutting length, centre of gravity, weight, painting area, welding length, bevel, etc…
viii. Verifying and simulation of N/C code data for plate cutting
ix. Support of process for procurement of steels.
x. Pre-nesting for procurement and ordering of steel plate
xi. Detail quantifying of number of quantity of steel for procurement
xii. Control and management of amount of scrap rate
xiii. Common database interface by ODBC
xiv. Support for customization for additional functions if required. (e.g., TRIBON interface.)
xv. Simultaneously manipulate multi-sheet cutting plan
xvi. Easy setting for N/C machine
xvii. Interactive execution mode for all operations
xviii. Easy and fast ways to correct production data against design changes
xix. Automatic cutting sequence assignment
xx. Automatic Torch Spacing Control
Nesting software improves production efficiency based on accumulated technology from varieties of fields. It helps management of resources and work processes efficiently and by using integrated process for part and steel plate from design to production for manufacture industries including shipbuilding and plant, bridge and heavy machine, etc
