Get The Most Out of Your Material

Simple, waterjet specific geometric nesting module gives you the most efficient use of your material. Geometric nesting allows parts to fit inside scrap areas of other parts. Get Software Demo

Computer monitor displaying FlowNest, Flow's Simple, waterjet specific geometric nesting module software.

Maximize your material with full geometric nesting

  • Import your standard DXF or Flow specific ORD part files 
  • Select part quantity, degree of rotation angle and priority 
  • Choose sheet size, which can be a standard sheet size or a remnant 
  • The system will automatically nest your parts 
  • Save the nested file as an ORD and send to the machine, FlowCut does the rest

Efficiency Gains

Advanced batch processing allows input of several large nesting jobs and lets the computer develop nests on its own. FlowNest® avoids previously cut parts – users can set the tool path to minimize the danger of cutting head collision with a previously cut part that has tipped slightly upward off the worktable.

Optimize Your Process

Optimized cut paths improved method of selecting the order in which parts are cut reducing extraneous long rapid moves and cutting cycle time. Common line cutting aligns parts side by side to create a common cutting line in order to save you cutting time and improve productivity.
