Program Nests Multi-Customer Laser-Cut Blanks, Parts to Cut Scrap Costs

June 1, 2015

United Performance Metals, Hamilton, OH, has introduced Global Nest, an enhanced, multi-part, multi-customer laser nesting program. Administered through UPM, Global Nest maximizes material usage for laser-cut blanks and parts by matching up multiple parts and orders to achieve the greatest yield with the least amount of scrap, according to company officials, resulting in lower job costs and an improved path to just-in-time production. Customers who participate in the Global Nest program have their blank/part orders matched up with orders from other customers to maximize nesting, thereby lowering costs for scrap paid by each customer.
