CAD/CAM software

CAD/CAM software
A well adapted computerized help increases the automation and the return on investment of machines fitted with the CNC. Lincoln Electric can supply software specially designed for thermal cutting CAD, pressure vessel shapes developed flat, interleaving, plate stock control, communication, translation of external files and files produced by other CAD systems (DXF, DWG, DSTV...).

MAGICNEST Software range
Four products that run with the latest Windows operating systems to enable to prepare and control thermal cutting production. The software is designed to be intuitive, simple and user-friendly, while offering powerful and effective functions.

Principally designed for small sized cutting machines, MAGICNEST JUNIOR is an intuitive and easy-to-use CAD software that integrates 2D designing tools. Its cutting technology, simulation modules complement the product for the fuss-free control of the machine. It can also read and modify all types of drawing - DXF, DWG, DSTV etc. The serial transmission module WINRS completes the functionalities of the product.

MAGICNEST 01 (manual nesting)
MAGICNEST 01 includes MAGICNEST JUNIOR and a nesting module that allows to manage quotes, orders, sheet stock and piece nesting. Its database makes it possible to obtain accurate quotes in a very short time, offer the manual cutting strategy, save know-how and generate machine programs. Its many tools - multiple-torch cutting, junctions, bridges, will enable you to fully control production and retain simplicity and intuitiveness of use.

MAGICNEST 10 (automatic nesting)
This is the top end version of MAGICNEST 01 for thermal cutting machine. MAGICNEST 10 ensure automatically the following operations:

  • Nesting pieces using the best strategy for maximising material savings,
  • IT application of the cutting technology, multiple-torch cutting, - cutting entry/exit, bridges, micro-junctions, common cutting, scrap recovery,
  • Tool path and machine program.

This is the best and complete version for machine with option bevel, indexing or piercing. Drawing and nesting functions are similar to MAGICNEST 10. With bevel option, MAGICNEST EXPERT PLUS control open-ended bevelling units that use plasma technology. It may be used for all types of bevel - V ,Y, X and K - in multiple pass processes. Possibility to include duct module and special marking (SIC marking or inkjet) in option.

Duct is a powerful module of MAGICNEST Expert Plus for calculating DUCT figures. Duct is designed in such a way that the user only has to follow the simple steps prompted by the system.
User simply has to select the figure to be developed, enter the required dimensions, and the figure will automatically be developed.

Flex3d Tubes is a member of the MAGICNEST Expert Plus family of products for the design and cutting of tubes. Easy, flexible design Flex3D Tubes gives a real vision of the result on the screen.
It displays the exact tube and simulates in 3D.
Flex3D Tubes allows 3D design in an intuitive and simple way: It gives the result that the user will obtain when cutting the profile on the machine.
