Alma, a cutting optimization software specialist

It all started in 1979 in Grenoble (France), when University Researchers in Applied Mathematics developed the world’s first software for automatic nesting and cutting optimization. That’s how Alma was born.

Nest&Cut encompasses our 40 years of knowledge and expertise in the development of intelligent algorithms for automatic nesting of complex shapes and CAM software for cutting. Since then we have always worked closely with cutting machine manufacturers around the globe. Thus we adapt our software for different technologies and continuously improve the performance of our automatic nesting algorithms to optimize material consumption

Today Alma is a leading CAD/CAM software maker for sheet metal, 2D & 3D cutting, robotics present in many countries. Our automatic nesting algorithms contribute to the superior performance of our software and are now available online with Nest&Cut. We are also the only ones to market the algorithms as software libraries. Thanks to this unparalleled expertise and our 100% proprietary technology our nesting software economizes raw material for thousands of industries, across multiple industrial sectors and for all kinds of materials.

With each of these functions are associated with state-of-the-art algorithmic, mathematical and computing skills. a leading company in the field of software for sheet-metal working, cutting and robotics, and are well established worldwide.
