CATNEST is powerful nesting software specifically designed for nesting sheet metal blanks on coils. It automatically calculates the best nesting layout to optimize material utilization based on coil width and pitch constraints.
Automatically nests for best material utilization for 1-up,2-up, and cutoff dies
Flexible setup - Optional pitch, coil width, and blank angle constraints to match available equipment and product requirements
Accurately determines material costs and die costs per blank
All results are stored in the standard CATPart file for ease of PLM integration
