The AutoPanelSizer software determines optimized cutting layouts for the production of rectangular parts from rectangular raw material, thus minimizing waste, production times, and manufacturing costs. AutoPanelSizer generates cutting layouts that can be produced by straight, continuous guillotine cuts. This makes the software suitable for common cutting technologies applied in wood machining and the glass, metal, and plastics processing industries.
Cutting layouts in seconds
AutoPanelSizer can compute layouts with up to three cutting stages plus head cuts and considers different constraints imposed by the cutting process and the material. Available remnants and various sizes of raw sheets can be included in the optimization. The computation of a typically sized cutting layout takes only a few seconds to a couple of minutes and can be further reduced using multiple processor cores.
