Cutting optimizer for saws for melamine HPL and veneer
Once the project in woodLAB CAD is ready, the BOM is generated. Next, a cutting list in ASCII format (.txt) will be made automaticaly available for importation in woodLAB PLAN.
woodLAB PLAN is a cutting optimizer software for wood panels
woodLAB PLAN is a cuting optimizer application for rectangular parts.
An essential application to optimize cuttings > Allows TIME and OFFCUTS control
- Unlimited optimization of parts
- Choice between unlimited boards formats
- Multi material/ multi thickness management
- Z and head cuts are available
- Trimming operations
- Blade thickness and grain direction are managed
- Preview of cutting patterns
- Edges and extra dimensions(edge thickness)
- Wizard for import / export in Microsoft Excel and ASCII
- Wizard for labels printouts
- Reports the number of boards necessary for the production and the cutting patterns
- Reports the effective material and statistics either of the optimization either individually either in its globality
- Advanced economic verifications (in Microsoft Excel)
- And many more features...
OptimizationIt returns the best solution taking into account the technical features of the machines, the saving of materials and optimal cutting patterns.
With the manual optimizer it is possible to manually intervene on the cutting patterns automatically generated by the software in order to insert or move some parts or to make up the boards with a high percentage of scraps.
For that kind of operation, the operator has at his disposal a set of tools to bring the parts together, or make them rotate or to copy and verify the feasibility. All those tools will unload the necessary controls.
Best format selectionThe optimizer brings the parts together according to the material, the thickness, the pattern. The operator selects among the proposed boards and their availability in the warehouse, the ones that reduce to a minimum the scraps, the time and the total cost of the production.
Taking into account the available board formats from the supplier or the best measures to get the minimum of scraps, the software can choose the best formats for a particular production.
