Nesting Software

The ATOM CNC digital knife cutting systems can take advantage of powerful nesting software both automatic and interactive in order to maximize the productivity of the operator as well as the material yield.

Automatic nesting software sold with automatic cutting machines is normally a “standardized” package, designed to deal with a specific issue but not able to deliver optimal results in diverse environments nor is customized to meet greater demands. ATOM does not believe in the “one size fits all” approach and for this reason we offer a variety of nesting solutions designed for a variety of materials and industries. ATOM offers the “complete cutting solution”, since we deliver our experience, the software package and the cutting system.

For the management of the cutting department – ATOM developed a special software package to create production orders following the given priorities. The JOB Manager software produces various cutting layouts on different materials executing “standard” or customized auto nestings, verifying the yields & material consumption, prior to the cutting process. Finally, it assigns the obtained production orders to the ATOM Flashcut knife cutting machines & collects all the statistical data of the yield & the production time in order to examine the details when requested.

Automatic Nesting Strategies to Optimize Material Yields

  • SoleNest – Strategy designed to optimize the nesting of soles on thick leather.
  • BagNest – Strategy to nest leather goods such as leather bags, wallets and suitcases.
  • BeltNest – Strategy designed to satisfy the makers of leather belts in straight as well as curved shapes.
  • UpperNest – Strategy dedicated to the nesting of uppers on leathers used in the footwear industry.
  • LuxuryNest – Strategy designed to optimize the nesting of leather used in the upholstery and furniture industry.
  • EchoNest – Strategy designed to place shoe components on materials in roll or sheet form – multi-layer materials.
  • StripeNest – Strategy aimed @ optimizing the automatic nesting of insoles on material strips.
  • TexNest – Strategy to nest on rolls typically used in the apparel & fashion industry.
  • SIPECO CAD – Development software for footwear industry – 2D and 3D CAD specific for design, development, shape acquisition, grading and pattern cutting.
  • Job Manager Software – For the management of the cutting room – ATOM can supply a special software package to create production orders following the given priorities.
  • CuteCAD – The new 2D design software for gaskets designed to speed up the prototyping process and shorten the time-to-market of your products.

* Our customers can also ask for custom nesting solutions able to fully support their production requirements.

+PLUS|Acquisition Systems & Nesting Software

Sequential Acquisition​

Sequential steps acquisition system allows the acquisition of hides larger the acquisition area, but above all, processing hides step-by-step, it eases hide inspection., by approaching the area to be inspected to the operator. Moreover, it optimizes the processing time, allowing to nest the shapes over the parts already examined.

FlashTracer Optical Pen​

It allows to easily mark defects and quality area of the hides, and to display them both on the screen ad directly on the hide, each one with a proper color. Moreover, FlashTracer operates as a mouse, able to launch nesting and cutting operations and to modify parameters directly on the working area.

Bar Code

After scanning and nesting calculation, the off-line acquisition systems print an identification label with bar code to be applied to leather. Thanks to the label reader, the operator can quickly and easily find the cutting layout which corresponds to the leather processed.

Optimized Nesting​​

Customized automatic nesting system. User friendly interface. Reduction of the process times and maximum material yield.

Pre-Printed Materials​

The in-line IntelliScan system scans the logo typed materials and coupled with the nesting algorithm, it automatically places the shapes to be cut according to the printed configuration on the materials.

Integrated Systems​

Integrated acquisition systems with ATOM FlashCut knife cutting tables combine acquisition, nesting, cutting & piece collecting in one solution. These “All-in-One” solutions cut operating & labor costs and allow the complete production cycle in one single machine.

Shape Acquisition​

Availability of digital scanning systems to automatically acquire pre-cut shapes or sets, eliminate the costly time associated drawing these files in an AutoCAD type software. The system takes a photo of the shape, vectorizes them, automatically corrects optical distortions, and exports data in .dxf or ATOM format ready to be cut.
