Which cutting pattern provides the greatest yield and minimum trim loss from a master source (e.g., how to manufacture furniture legs from wood stock)?

OPTIMAL STOCK CUTTING applications enable users to determine which cutting plan yields the material requirements at the lowest cost. Savings are typically 3% or more of total costs of stock cutting.

An implementation of the OPTIMAL STOCK CUTTING application is the minimum cost selection of cutting templates for steel bars to yield various lengths of finished steel product bar requirements considering trim loss.

OPTIMAL STOCK CUTTING applications address many manufacturing industries with material reduction requirements.


Optimal Stock Cutting applications include the following configurations:
  • Stock Cutting Management
  • Stock Cutting Pattern Generator

  • The basic data modeled includes the following:
  • Finished Product requirements
  • Raw material attributes
  • Cutting templates
  • Cost of trim loss
