The module Wire EDM and Cutting is used for wire-cut EDM, flame cutting, plasma cutting, water cutting, lasing / laser marking and cutting plotter. Within those types of machining there are often 2d-contours applied. The contours consist of lines, arc of circles, nurbes, spline curves or any combinations of the different element types. A nesting module distributes the work pieces on a table considering iron sheet size, edge distance, part distance etc. Therefor the user has the choice between a module for a simple rectangle nesting and a module for contour nestling. After nestling the user defines the machining order and direction, contour approach and depart as well as technology data for the cutting process.
