Q&A Frequently Asked Questions

Q.What is the nesting rate?

A.

Though the nesting time differs depending on the shape and quantity of the supplied parts, 95% to 100% of them can usually be nested.

Generally, the relationship between the nesting time and the nesting rate is expressed by a curve as shown below:

Though depending on the shape of parts, up to 99% of them can be nested in a short time in many examples. To improve the nesting rate to 99.5%, 99.9% or 99.99%, the nesting time increases synergistically. (Number of swings increases.)

Therefore, the target value is generally set to 99% to 99.5% depending on the characteristics of the next process. Unloaded holes, if any, can be visually found and manually filled to improve productivity.

Since the next pallet can be set on the nesting machine during manual work, you will have no loss of time.
