Software for cutting optimisation for your bar material

With Pre-Cut Optimizer, you can optimise your cuts of standardised standard profiles, user-defined profiles and other bar material.

Pre-Cut Optimizer is available in 3 editions (Basic Edition, Standard and Professional), which differ in terms of the number of parts list items and the range of functions.

The calculation model for determining cutting patterns processes the respective semi-finished product blanks according to their cutting lengths in order to obtain as many similar blanks per bar as possible.

The integrated, fully editable parts list serves as the basis for the calculation. It is possible to import parts lists from CSV or text files or the Windows clipboard.

As a result of the calculation, you receive a detailed cutting list with all the items to be cut, alternatively a bar list with a graphic representation of the bar displayed, an offcut list and a corresponding requirements list (order list). You can print out these configurable lists or make them available to other software via the Windows clipboard for further processing.
