Cutting Optimization Pro

this algorithm calls for the use of a cutting simulator to construct a cut list that is not suboptimal. since the cutting simulator constructs cuts with optimal solutions, it is possible to see if a sample cut list constructed by the simulator is optimal for any of these optimal solutions. if a cutting simulator has not been used in previous work, it is best to use one to optimize cuts of material that the machine will be cutting most often, and then use an optimal list for any design cuts with less material.

cutting optimization is a cutting pattern generation algorithm. the algorithm is for a continuous objective but can be easily adapted to cutting problems with discrete constraints, such as time limits, market demands, etc.

the algorithm starts with a cutting pattern as a starting point and then eliminates or adds cuts from the cutting pattern to minimize the overall cost of the pieces produced. from a starting cost of zero, the overall cost of the pieces decreases until there is no solution remaining. for a full description of the algorithm, see algorithm 2.1 from chapter 2 of this textbook.

this algorithm is used to find the best pattern of cuts to make a given part from any piece of material. the resulting cutting pattern will have the smallest number of cuts if the problem is set up correctly. when a cutting simulator is used to generate a cutting pattern, cuts are generated for various material composition. the cutting pattern is then compared to the cutting pattern generated using optimal material composition. a cost savings can be observed at each possible solution.

FreeCut is one of the best-in-class solutions for automating part production with 3D and 4D lasers and materials. It can automatically optimize and simulate each aspect of your additive manufacturing process, including contour cutting and nesting, slotting and form features, and milling. FreeCut comes in a single or multi-head configuration, making it ideal for you regardless of your needs. This laser technology integrates the functionality of a laser-cutting machine and the speed of a CNC machine. Ergon Laser uses a cutting chamber, so no touchup is required and the productivity is only limited by the size of your parts. The 3D contour laser can cut a wide variety of materials including paper, cardboard, PVC, polycarbonate, ABS, PETG, Nylon, Woven, and non-woven fabrics. The 4D contour laser can also cut the same materials as the 3D laser, but will also cut layers of foam or plastic, like in painted materials. Both the 3D contour and 4D contour lasers are capable of cutting materials 10mm thick and above. Few tools are as closely connected to the quality of a manufactured product as the type of cutting and finishing technique used. Selecting the right one is critical to obtaining a long lasting, high quality manufactured part, and using the wrong process can cost you in terms of both time and money. Computer-aided cutting optimization software makes the job of optimizing the cutting of each part a speedy and effortless task. Computer-aided cutting provides the capability of optimizing cutting operation using real-time optimization of the cutting parameters. 5ec8ef588b
