SigmaTEK Releases SigmaTUBE X1

SigmaTEK Systems, the world's leading CAD/CAM software company, has released the latest version of their automated tube-cutting software, SigmaTUBE X1. The latest release offers new features and significant improvements which are a result of SigmaTEK's on-going commitment to delivering elegant, effective software through continuous innovation.

SigmaTUBE helps tube fabricators complete mission-critical work. It is a complete tube cutting solution for 4, 5 and 6-axis cutting machines that automatically processes and programs entire assemblies. SigmaTUBE is fully integrated inside SOLIDWORKS and is capable of programming all tube shapes and sizes. The fastest full assembly processing tube software on the market now has even more added features with the release of SigmaTUBE X1.

The new Best Stick Nesting feature is a 1D nesting option that gives you the best overall yield possible based on your stock selection. You can either select Best Stick Fixed to use a single length stock or you can choose Best Stick Mixed to allow mixing and matching.

SigmaTUBE X1 has also expanded the functionality of the new Best Stick Nesting feature into the Nest Calculator tool. The new SigmaTUBE Nest Calculator is a material optimization tool that calculates the ideal stock length for a task. Using the minimum and maximum length and allowed increment, the calculator displays a complete stock comparison, which shows you the lengths that yield the highest utilization percentage. This is also a tool that fabricators can use for quoting, to determine how much stock you need to complete a job prior to programming.

SigmaTUBE X1 also offers a Single Pierce Open Section Toolpath for channel and angle profiles. This option interpolates cuts on sharp corners, allowing a single toolpath to be used for the end cuts. Basically, this option provides a single cut rather than multiple passes, decreasing cut times.

Dakota Baird, SigmaTUBE Product Manager, is excited about the new features and improvements in SigmaTUBE X1 stating, "Our SigmaTUBE customers drive the direction of our product and we are committed to providing users with the best possible solution for their needs," says Baird.
