SECANT

Cutting Optimization

SECANT is a high yield cutting optimizer for both sheets and bars and the main cut planning software chosen by companies throughout the world for all types of material including board, laminates, steel, aluminium and acrylics.

Saves you material

The SECANT systems have a reputation as high yield optimizers. Our low wastage patterns minimise the scrap produced, whilst our intelligent off-cut management system retains material in the sizes most suitable for use in the future. Stock offcuts can be reused preferentially to avoid the unnecessary purchase of additional material.

Saves you money

In the sales office, SECANT allows you to quickly and accurately calculate the cost of producing a customer order – ensuring you can quote competitively and respond rapidly to customer enquiries. Whilst on the production floor, efficient use of the full cutting capability of your saw allows machine running time to be reduced.

Saves you manpower

SECANT produces optimized cutting solutions in a fraction of the time taken for manual calculations, and in a reproducible manner. Automatic transmission of cutting patterns to your saw saves data entry time on the production floor. Control over work in progress helps to manage staff demand in the marshalling and production areas.
