  • Used in machining to cut the plate material in a straight line like a shearing machine or a panel saw. (Guillotine cutting, Edge to edge, Rectangular Nesting)
  • Corresponds to coil material.
  • Possible or impossible to rotate parts can be individually set.
  • Easier to know which part to cut from by the cutting assist line.
  • Support cutting optimization of one-dimensional (long material) materials.

High speed and High yield

Maximize the capabilities of PC with multicore processor support.
Calculate the number of parts about 2,500 in 4 seconds, the average yield is 95.77%.
An example of randomly generated data. See "Measurement conditions". Please download and experience with actual data.

Case study, customer's voice

We will show you excerpts of customers' voices that actually arrived with e-mail etc.
There are times when you can tell me that there are errors and troubles actually. Thanks to that, we can improve and further improve our reliability.

  • I did not buy it, but your company could answer questions carefully.
  • This software is very useful software.
  • I am satisfied with the calculation speed and the calculation result.
  • The use of this software will surely improve the yield of the board.

Measurement conditions

Size of stock panel (original plate)1800 * 900 2400 * 1200
Size of parts
From minimum 200 * 100
Randomly generated up to 1500 * 800
Number of parts is about 2500.
(Number of types of parts 500 *

Optimization option setting value
Saw kerf size = 3
Number of digits after a decimal point = 0
Small stocks usage rate = 5
Speed and Yield = rightmost (low speed / high yield)
CPU Core i7 - 3635 QM 2.4 GHz
Average number of samples 100
Yield 95.77% Processing time 4.17 seconds
Because it is randomly generated part data,
The optimal solution does not yield yield 100%.
Yield at optimal solution is unknown.
