Then you need to cut your mother rolls into smaller cuts on a slitting machine.
This gives rise to the problem of fulfilling customer demand by utilizing as little material as possible from your mother rolls. See Examples Below!
A production order combines information on customer demand and the production machine. This can be done collaboratively in teams working on a common dataset in the cloud.
A cutting plan is the information how you want to cut your mother rolls into smaller cuts. The challenge is to waste as little material at the sides as possible. You can define the cutting plan manually free of charge. As this operation is complex, you can use our dedicated solver, which saves your working time. If your are happy with the result, you can purchase the cutting plan.
The cutting plan can be further refined by adjusting the sequence of cutting patterns or the order of cuts within one cutting pattern. This can be done by dragging and dropping tiles, partitioning or using a solver free of charge. The solver will try to minimize the number of knife positionings necessary at the slitting station.
The finalized cutting plan can be printed or converted to a PDF file in order to bring it to the shop floor.
In order to open Champcut to a larger audience, we are relaxing the restrictions of solver usage. From today on, solver usage is unrestricted for all production orders with maximum number of three cuts. This is supposed to give newly registered users a better feeling about the functionality and operability of Champcut. As a result of more active users we will gain even greater feedback for improvement and development, bringing advantage to power users as well. Thanks for being part of this journey!
Beside a security update, Champcut today gains a new feature which we call “partitioning“. This feature is helpful for cutting plans with labeled cuts sharing identical width. This may occur if production for various customers occurs in a common cutting plan. In this case you may want to decide which customer is prioritized (moved to the top) in the cutting plan. Moreover it may happen that the plans include buffer rolls which you want to distribute among your customers (one customer may accept buffer rolls while the other may not). These adjustments to the cutting plan are now available via the option “Partitionate“ as a item of the menu “Adjust“ of the cutting plan. Note that the option only appears if at least two cuts share the same width.
The new version of Champcut is out containing some great features such as sharing capabilities of cutting plans, custom coloring of cutting plans, alignment options for cutting plans (LHS, center, RHS, justify) and advanced cutting plan reports. Happy to boost your productivity!
