From the smallest one person shop to some of the largest manufactures in the world, NiTec has provided the Quick, Easy and Affordable way to create patterns directly on the metal for HVAC, Roofing, Dust Collection and custom applications.

For over 25 years, NiTec has shipped Computer Layout Systems from Alaska to Florida, Hawaii to Maine and to 11 countries on 4 continents.

The low-cost alternative to plasma cutting systems

The CLS-408 and CLS-410 layout systems create and draw patterns for sheet metal duct and fittings used in HVAC, Dust Collection and Roofing.

An inexpensive alternative to plasma systems. NiTec offers the following advantages:


A fraction of the cost


Increases Accuracy


Uses 120V power (other voltages available)


No ventilation required


Does not take a lot of space


No fire hazard!        

Easy to use! Just select the type of fitting you want from a menu, pick edges from a list, and enter the finished dimensions as shown in a picture on the screen.

The system will draw the patterns on your metal complete with edges, seams, bends, rolls, folds and other assembly marks with a the New Sharpie Pro or the Old Sharpie® Extra Fine Point Markers. If you want a different marker. Give Us A Call.

The patterns are arranged in columns and marks are placed on the edge of the sheets, so a shear can be used to easily separate the patterns and do most of the cutting. All lines are on the inside of the patterns.

Because a job of up to 99 fittings can be entered at once, the patterns are automatically labeled to identify them with their fitting and location.

Example: If the 3rd fitting entered in the job is a 4 piece transition, the pieces of that fitting would have 3L, 3B, 3R, or 3T drawn on them. Of course, the letters stand for Left, Bottom, Right and Top. The IDs are always at the same opening of the fitting.

With the optional label printer the systems can create paper labels for the outside of the fittings. The paper labels can show job name, address, floor, location, fitting number and even which truck it should be loaded.  Anything you want.

These systems allow you to pre-view the fitting patterns on the sheets, so you always know how much metal will be used. You can even enter smaller pieces, non-standard or scrap metal before you let the system draw the job. That way the system will try to use those pieces of metal before it defaults back to full sheets, plus, you can always save a job and draw it later. This feature is really nice if you have a job you will need to repeat, like tract housing.

With typical drawing speeds up to 600 i.p.m. and max head speeds over 1000 i.p.m., you can make short work of your patterns. It does not have to be watched, so you can be cutting and forming one sheet while it draws the next sheet. People tell me, what took all day, now takes a couple of hours. Some have said that shop expenses have been cut nearly in half.

The system can also draw patterns created with other software packages like Design2Fab  and DeltaCad.

But, keep in mind that you do not need any other software to quickly and easily create duct and fittings for HVAC, Roofing and Dust Collection. We are just saying that if you already have other software you can still use it. NiTec ships all systems complete. This means you do not need to purchase anything else to use them. Plus, we can often include set-up and training in the lower 48 States at no extra charge.
