Zund, NestONE in Partnership to Provide CAD/CAM System in USA
Zund America Inc., a subsidiary of the Swiss company Zund Systemtechnik AG, is partnering with NestONE Solutions to provide the JetCAM Expert CAD/CAM solution to the US market for its range of digital cutting machine tools for the aerospace, automotive, marine, and other industries. JetCAM Expert, nesting software specialized for the sheet metal and aerospace industries, is produced and developed by JetCAM International. NestONE Solutions is a US JetCAM reseller.
The agreement is intended to offer significant advantages to customers that utilize Zund machine tools in conjunction with the JetCAM Expert CAD/CAM system. It should increase production speeds, allow tighter nesting, and allow users to take fullest advantage of the Zund variety of bed sizes and tooling options and Zund’s unique conveyor system. A production solution offered by Zund and powered by JetCAM CAD/CAM will provide customers with an unprecedented price-to-performance ratio, says Zund. Along with higher production throughput, customers should see considerable reductions in scrap.
JetCAM International has already developed a postprocessor to support the advanced functions of the Zund cutter.
Commented Oliver Zund, president of Zund America, “Our strategy is to offer a total solution for manufacturers in the aerospace, marine, automotive, and other markets to best utilize our machine tools. In this age of ever increasing material costs, JetCAM provides Zund customers competitive advantage and the highest material optimization possible.”
David Lichtenwalner, president of NestONE Solutions, seconded his partner: “The superior cutting capabilities offered by Zund provide an unparalleled opportunity for producing parts of the highest quality while maximizing material utilization by using the JetCAM high-performance nester.”
