Sheet Metal CAD CAM Software
Metamation Sheet Metal CAD CAM Software is an internally designed and developed programming software which features core modules such as CAD, 5-Axis, Bend, Punch, Laser, Combination, Nesting and Smart optimal solutions which are designed to give our customers software that can grow and adapt as the business needs may change whilst ensuring you have up to date innovative software solutions that support a large range of machine manufacturers and technologies.
As well as industry-standard Sheet Metal CAD CAM modules like CAD, Punch, Laser, Bend, and Nest we also provide more automated options like our Enterprise edition that can completely help to streamline not just the front-end process but the manufacturing workflow as well whilst giving your business a highly flexible and automated approach.
Enterprise has helped us better manage our parts and revisions across multiple programmers
Drop in a DXF and Enterprise will immediately give you the cutting time and price estimate
A good overall product for our punching machines
We can easily switch jobs from one machine to another
We have reduced our shift requirements by 15-20%
Due to the automation and ease of use our output is 3-4 times more than we used to achieve with both of our prior CAD/CAM systems.
We are extremely impressed with the speed and solutions available from Metamation and we are already identifying potentially large cost savings for the business
Nesting element is very good and utilises the sheet very well
Looking forward to a good working relationship with them as we know they are a forward thinking company
MetaCAM’s open interface to VB allowed us to automate production cycles and reduce production development time from 3 days to 10 minutes
We can batch program hundreds of parts through Enterprise in less than 10 minutes
The ease, speed and flexibility of the nesting portion of the software, greatly reduces the time when dealing with static nests
Scheduling jobs and monitoring productivity on the machines has become that much easier
I have found the software to be intuitive, good automation and the support back up has been great to date
MetaCAM Enterprise Edition has saved us 4-5 hours per job.
We had impressive results in terms of reduced scrappage and large productivity improvements.
A vast improvement over our previous software, especially the 3D capabilities.
Software keeps workflow moving and operators on the shop floor
Our latest next generation nesting algorithm is designed to deliver high performance results in a time that is acceptable to the fast pace of manufacturing enviroments.
Flux nest works for both Cut and Punch technology.
27% Quicker and 5.2% higher yield in this one small example.
What could that mean to your business?
Offline Bending is not a new industry process, but taking all our years of experience and knowledge Metamation designed it’s next generation Offline Bending Software (Flux Bend) from the ground up, with a highly intuitive interface and extremely powerful bending algorithms Flux Bend helps bring more cost savings than conventional 1st generation Offline Bending Software’s.
Features include Import, Validation, Optimal Tooling, Optimal Setups, Clarity Interface, Advanced Configurations, Press Brake Nesting.

Sheet Metal CAD CAM provided to Lasnek UK, starting from punch based systems through to laser and then automation.
Machine Management and Nesting Savings
Combining nesting capability with proper machine management—scheduling, determining proper sheet size, etc.—adds efficiency to the overall production process.
CAD CAM NESTING
The business cost for profile cutting on machines has been and still is primarily driven by Front End Time, Material Utilisation, Sequence Optimisation and Customers
