Developing packaging solutions for the safe and efficient transportation of car parts, machinery, or equipment from suppliers to the assembly line was previously an expensive and intricate task. Now, the optimization software PackAssistant calculates the ideal arrangement for filling transport boxes with identical parts in just a few minutes. PackAssistant is utilized by numerous manufacturers and suppliers worldwide, especially in the automotive industry. Since the software can be applied while the prototype is still being designed in the CAD system, it allows for the early, quick, and reliable planning of transport and storage.

PackAssistant enables users to manage various types of packaging, including arrangements with solid or flexible intermediate layers, compartments, or stacks, and it can simulate the packing of loose goods.

The space utilization calculated by PackAssistant typically surpasses that of experienced human planners. The software can be used concurrently with the ongoing Computer-Aided Design (CAD) of the parts to be packed, thus facilitating early, rapid, and reliable planning for the transportation and storage of parts.

If you are interested in PackAssistant, we invite you to test the software with your parts. PackAssistant is compatible with any Windows computer and is easy to install.



CuboNester optimizes the arrangement of cuboid parts in three dimensions. CuboNester-P optimizes packing, for example, of disassembled furniture into packages.



3D nesting is about arranging objects as good as possible in cuboid containers. The objects themselves do not have to be cuboids, but can be objects of any complexity.
