Hypertherm Inc is internationally renowned for its commitment to designing and manufacturing the best industrial cutting solutions on the market, dating back nearly 50 years. Their sole focus is cutting! Hypertherm's mission is to provide customers with cutting solutions allowing them to "cut with confidence”.
STRUMIS LTD is the leading supplier of software solutions to the international structural steel industry since 1986. With core business areas in the construction and structural steel industries, STRUMIS products have consistently transformed its customers business in the steelwork fabrication supply chain.
As part of the recent partnership agreement, Hypertherm’s latest ProNest CAD/CAM nesting software version can now be linked with the latest version of STRUMIS to provide API data- exchange functionality, which will complement STRUMIS’ existing linear nesting, and in exactly the same way as linear nesting, will allocate/nest plate mark items from inventory or supplier available sheets. The additionally required sheets will then be added to the purchase order automatically and any remnants/off cuts returned to inventory. DXF and NC export files will be forwarded to the relevant plate profiling machinery within the STRUMIS Production Control module to complete the process.
This significant new functionality will deliver substantial benefits to mutual users of STRUMIS and ProNest in terms of both maximizing materials and minimizing wastage, together with integrated production processing through CAM/CAD technology.
Derek Weston, Product Marketing Manager for Hypertherm’s CAD/Cam software products comments, "We are excited about this partnership with STRUMIS LTD as we look to further enhance our services to the market. We have seen STRUMIS LTD’s steel fabrication management information – STRUMIS - and believe it’s technically advanced and will offer users further efficiencies in production of their steel fabrication business.”
Simon Inman, STRUMIS LTD’s Technical Director comments, "We are delighted to be cooperate with Hypertherm to further enhance STRUMIS’ functionality to deliver competitive solutions and further establish STRUMIS LTD’s commitment to the industry, as well as our own business growth. We look forward to this partnership and develop our software to give us further market share.”
