What Our Customers Say

CutLogic 1D software was implemented last year in one of the divisions (Zamil Steel Tower and Galvanizing). Since implementation users are well satisfied with the system functionalities. CutLogic 1D application proved to be very successful as compared to earlier” optimizer” solution. In fact Zamil Steel management is considering implementing in other divisions Structure Steel on later stage. This software has many advantages and by using this application, wastage has reduced. Beside built-in features, TMachines added on request additional functionality as was asked to do so. This software is flexible for customization according to user’s need. During implementation & after, we received excellent support from TMachines in terms of customization and installation. Zamil Steel is committed to use this software and also expecting future enhancement which can benefit not only to Zamil Steel but other users in the world.

We’ve been using Cutlogic for about 6 months and it has already paid for itself many times over! For years, we have used spreadsheet models to determine our “optimal” cutting patterns. As a former student of linear programming, I knew there was a better way. But, Cutlogic has exceeded my expectations. Our scrap is routinely about half what it was. And the superior results are being achieved in far less time, thus freeing up our staff to do more productive things than trial and error optimization.

In our previous nesting software, we had to hand key all the data into the program. With CutLogic 1D, I can import and optimize all the data for multiple projects with the touch of one button. The operator simply has to review and print the report. This will save us countless hours and key-stroke errors.

We have been using Cutlogic 1D and CutLogic 2D since 2007 with great success. With the continually rising cost of steel every inch of scrap means lost revenue. Cutlogic has helped to minimize this. The programs are very easy to use and have great functionality. Cut lists and parts labels can be printed which allows our shop to keep better track of production. Finally, the support received is excellent and new, helpful features have been implemented over the past few years. We would highly recommend this program to anyone who needs accurate cutting plans in 1D or 2D.

CutLogic 1D appeared to be virtually tailor made for our purpose and has proved to be very cost effective, easy to use and has paid for itself in the first months of use. We do not know how we ever managed without it. CutLogic is so easy to use and vice free that we believe it could be the market leader in ‘stand alone’ nesting software. TMachines listen to their customers and we have found them to be more than helpful and keen to implement changes to improve their product further.
