The ATOM dieless knife cutting system can take advantage of powerful nesting software both automatic and interactive in order to maximize the productivity of the operator as well as the material yield. Automatic nesting software sold with automatic cutting machines is normally a “standardized” package, designed to deal with a specific issue but not able to deliver optimal results in diverse environments nor is customized to meet greater demands. ATOM does not believe in the “one size fits all” approach and for this reason we offer a variety of nesting solutions designed for a variety of materials and industries. ATOM offers the “complete cutting solution”, since we deliver our experience, the software package and the cutting system.

For the management of the cutting department – ATOM developed a special software package to create production orders following the given priorities. The JOB Manager software produces various cutting layouts on different materials executing “standard” or customized auto nestings, verifying the yields & material consumption, prior to the cutting process. Finally, it assigns the obtained production orders to the dieless knife cutting machines & collects all the statistical data of the yield & the production time in order to examine the details when requested.
