We use CutLogic 1D to calculate and cut aluminium profile to make shades. The results are forwarded to cutting machines to cut. It has saved a lot of our material and man-made mistakes. We also use CutLogic 2D to calculate the least amount of fabric used to fulfill the order, a simple task like that could take 10-15mins before and now it’s done in less than 1min. Time saving is money. Also we are very happy with the support provided by TMachines and they always accommodate & assist us to update our license after upgrading our server. I highly recommend TMachines.
We cut large sheets of plastic and cut multiple different panel sizes from a sheet using our CNC Router, this can vary from order to order and we used to spend hours of time programming this by hand and figuring out the sheet optimisations for the best yield. I tried the free Cut logic 2D Trial and used it for 30 days and was blown away by the speed, optimisation and ease of use. It has taken the boring monotony out of my job and I can now program 50 sheets or more in about 10 minutes and export to DXF (this would have taken me several hours). We can now cut twice as much material in the same amount of time and have much less wastage and headaches! I recommend this program to any business cutting multiple sheet or for cutting many different panel sizes.
We have been using the CutLogic 2D program for a few years now. It has changed the way we look at the yield of our raw material. We are now able to order enough special material for each job and eliminate a lot of waste and inventory cost at the same time. The material cutters also like the product because it give them a detail of how to maximize each sheet and eliminate scrap. Thanks to the program, profits are up and scrap it down. I would recommend this program to whoever cuts full sheets of material.
Ordering Cutlogic 2D from TMachines was one of our best decisions. It was very easy to learn how it works; also the support is excellent. We use it to optimize facade panels, and we can also support our installers, as this way it is easy to follow the quantities for the orders and we can easily extract the cutting plans which can be forwarded to the customers, or to the cutting workshops.
We’ve used the TMachines ActiveX 2D optimisation engine to integrate directly with our existing distribution software. It’s allowed us the flexibility we needed, and was simple to use, more importantly it’s allowed us to use a varying array of machines and manual processes with varying levels of complexity to be optimised by a single engine, and to integrate with our off-cuts. Not only that, but it consistently outperforms other optimisation engines in both speed and utilisation. We’ve managed to reduce our waste and make our staffs jobs easier, and it would not be possible without TMachines.
When we started using CutLogic2D, there were a few things we expected – it looked cool, worked very well, saved our time, our money and paid itself very quickly. What we did not expect and were amazed of, was, that we learned how to use it at first glance!! It was so pleasant as this does not happen very often and our hats off to CutLogic guys in TMachines !!
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 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.
I’m just so happy to receive my new version of CutLogic 2D. Just thank you for your work and be sure that I’m satisfied with it. I work with it many times a day and it makes my works better n better.. astonished!!!
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.
The Cutlogic-1D ActiveX Engine has allowed us to completely integrate Cutlogic-1D into our production process. The API is very simple and took no time to program around. A process that used to take hours to manually calculate can now be performed by the click of a button in seconds. TMachines has also been very quick to resolve any questions or issues. We will definitely continue to do business them in the future.
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.
