SigmaTUBE is the industry’s most powerful tube-cutting solution, seamlessly integrated inside of SOLIDWORKS. Designed for tube-cutting laser and plasma machines, SigmaTUBE offers automatic linear nesting for round pipe, rectangular tube, channel, I-Beam, and many more profiles.
Because SigmaTUBE is an add-in module to the SOLIDWORKS design interface, experienced CAD programmers will find it intuitive and easy to use. From creating parts to generating NC code, every aspect of the programming process is completed within SOLIDWORKS. This eliminates time-consuming exports and the need for a secondary CAM software.
SigmaTUBE can also automate many of your machine functions such as tapping, repositioning, and chucking. Bevel cuts are automatically processed, and common line cutting can be applied to many different profiles.
Parts and assemblies can be created natively inside SOLIDWORKS or imported from other external systems like AutoDesk Inventor, SolidEdge, ACIS (SAT), IGES, and many others. Automatic toolpath sequencing is applied to the part and NC code can be generated for most major 4 or 5-axis tube machines including Alltra, Amada, Hankwang, Mazak, Mitsubishi, and Trumpf.*
By combining intelligent feature recognition, powerful orientation modifications for 4 and 5-axis machines, automatic toolpath generation, and versatile automatic nesting engines for tubes, SigmaTUBE stands above the rest in efficiency, automation, and integration.
