SigmaTUBE | New 3D Cutting Software

NEW 3D Cutting Software

SigmaTEK: SigmaTUBE

SigmaTUBE is a complete pipe & tube cutting software that makes complex programming of parts easy. SigmaTUBE was specially designed to produce faster order turn-around time through optimized material usage and machine flexibility and performance, with no separate CAM system required.

With SigmaTUBE, you can automatically generate NC code tool paths for solid parts such as:

  • Round, Square, Rectangular, or Triangular Pipes & Tubes
  • I-beams
  • H-beams
  • C-channels
  • Angle Iron
  • And even User-Defined Shapes

Custom programs are available to fully maximize the advanced features of Mazak FabriGear, Trumpf, BLM, Bystronic, Amada and Other 3D tube and pipe cutting laser machines.
