Delivers up to 2 percent better material utilization than standard automated nesting systems
TOLLAND, Conn., USA (April 15, 2014) – Gerber Technology announces the release of AccuNest™ Multi-Core (MC) software for automated marker making. AccuNest MC software employs multiple computer processors to automatically nest markers that deliver up to 2 percent better material utilization than single-core nesting systems. It enables more accurate costing, maximizes material utilization and reduces labor costs.
Mary McFadden, director of CAD Product Management, said, “In a field study using more than 60 markers, AccuNest MC software shortened markers an average of one inch (2.5 cm.) and improved utilization as much as 2 percent over single core automated nesting solutions. AccuNest MC software also outperformed competitive multi-core nesting solutions by 1 percent, on average. These types of material savings can translate into tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars over the course of a year – savings that are easy to realize through a one-time investment in software.”
AccuNest MC software employs powerful algorithms to analyze multiple nesting solutions and consistently deliver the marker with the highest material utilization without human intervention. For example, a user with an eight-core computer can explore eight times the number of nesting strategies as someone using a single core processor. The software makes markers 24 hours a day – even working unattended overnight, to respond to peak demands without added labor costs.
“AccuNest continues to deliver the most efficient markers in the industry,” McFadden added. “The software offers an advantage to businesses of all sizes that are eager to cost markers more accurately and nest production markers more efficiently.”
AccuNest MC may be added to an existing AccuMark software seat or operated as a standalone system connected to an AccuMark network. The software is compatible with AccuMark 9.0 and higher.
