The AutoBarSizer software determines optimized cutting plans for cutting steel profiles and other bar material (long material) into shorter parts (fixed dimensions). The generated solutions are characterized by a high degree of material utilization (utilization, yield), cutting losses are minimized.
Optimize miter cuts in seconds
When mitering parts, AutoBarSizer also optimizes the nesting (interlocking) of the parts. For this purpose, it is sometimes useful to rotate the parts. Which rotations are permitted can be specified by the planner depending on the symmetries of the material and production requirements.
AutoBarSizer solves problems that arise during planning in rolling mills and at steel distributors, but also in the wood processing industry as well as at manufacturers and processors of all types of laths. The calculations for a usual size cutting plan take only a few seconds to a few minutes at most.
Benefit & added value
Mit einer computergestützten Optimierung von Längenkombinationen beim Zuschnitt von Stangenware lassen sich durch die bestmögliche Vermeidung von Schrott erhebliche Mengen an Material einsparen. This conserves resources and reduces production costs without compromising product and service quality.
By individually weighting residual recycling and residual generation, AutoBarSizer can also regulate residual stock levels and avoid unnecessary storage costs.
Providers of software solutions who would like to integrate optimization into their application, as well as larger companies who are willing to program or have programmed a corresponding connection to their IT systems.
To enable companies to get an impression of the software’s performance before programming a connection, Fraunhofer SCAI offers a demo user interface. This simple interface is not suitable for daily productive use.
Integration into existing software
AutoBarSizer is distributed as a pure geometric optimization engine and is intended for integration into other applications, for example plant control systems, MES or ERP systems. For this purpose, AutoBarSizer has an XML interface that can be accessed via standard input / output, via a file interface or as a server service. The software runs on all current Microsoft Windows operating systems.
