Which Cut Rite Is Right For You?

Whether Express or Professional: with the latest generation of
Cut Rite HOLZMA offers optimization software that is ideally suited to meet individual challenges. After all, the know-how of the world market leader in horizontal panel sizing technology and the experience of more than 25 years’ in-house software engineering is contained in the two powerful levels. An advantage that pays off.

Standard Features

  • Allows manual entry of part lists and electronic data importing, including lengths, widths, quantity, grain, and up to 99 additional information fields.
  • Manage multiple materials – grained and non-grained – and merge information with similar jobs to maximize efficiency and yield potential.
  • The Cut Rite Board Library allows you to create an index of standard materials with multiple sheet sizes and manipulate them for individual jobs.
  • Optimize Grain Matched Patterns from the Pattern Library. The optimizer will then place those parts in accordance with the specified template.
  • Produces detailed optimizations that can be electronically transferred to CNC panel saws. With Cut Rite’s pattern amendment tools, optimizations can be readily edited to most efficiently utilize offcut areas or create specific part arrangements.
  • Reports include material usage, yield information, costing, parts produced, pattern drawings, and full cutting instructions.
  • Create and Report on re-usable Offcuts

Cut Rite Nesting (NE) NEW!

true-shape nesting | machine interface | pattern amendment

The Cut Rite NE module contains an advanced set of nesting algorithms for rectangular and true-shaped nesting and can handle the varied requirements of small, medium and large companies. NE offers Grain Matching templates which allow the user to define a part as a member of a grain-matched set and then place those parts in accordance with the specified template. Allows manual entry of part lists and electronic data importing, including lengths, widths, quantity, grain, and up to 99 additional information fields. Manage multiple materials – grained and non-grained – and merge information with similar jobs to maximize efficiency and yield potential. The Cut Rite Board Library allows you to create an index of standard materials with multiple sheet sizes and manipulate them for individual jobs. Cut-Rite produces detailed nesting results that can be electronically transferred to CNC machines and routers. NE also offers the ability to edit the nested results allowing the most efficient use of offcut areas or to create specific part arrangements. Reports include material usage, yield information, costing, parts produced and pattern drawings.

NE also includes a variety of parameters that allows the user to control the nested results including how small parts are produced, whether or not they require skin cuts or if they can be placed on the edge of the panel. Parts can also be prioritized allowing them to be produced before other non priority parts.

Modules

Cut Rite Part Labels

Part Library and Office Part Labels

A real time saver if you produce the same parts over and over. Just enter and save all the information for a part once. Then click on it and add a quantity to include it in a production run. A parts list can be imported from multiple sources as well. A custom label to be printed in the office can be created using all stored information.

Product Library, Quotes, and Orders

This module makes data entry even easier by allowing the creation of products by assembling parts from the Part Library. Then data entry is reduced to just selecting the products and entering the quantities for a production run. Quotations and Production Orders are created the same way. Importing the products required from multiple sources is also quick and easy if desired. Products can be fully parametric and are not limited to just panel parts, but can include all items needed for production, i.e. hardware, labor, etc.

Cut Rite Board Stock Controls

Board Stock Control

This is a comprehensive system allowing you to allocate available boards and offcuts to current jobs. It allows you to see what stock is actually available and optimize your orders and deliveries. Reports quickly show you the status of your board inventory.

CNC Machining and CNC Linking

An addition to the Part Library, this module provides automatic programming of holes, routs, and grooves to cnc machining centers. The machining functions can be parametrically tied to the part or product size as well as other variables. Programming the machining center is then done with just a mouse click.

Edging and Laminating

Works seamlessly with the Part Library to calculate edging and laminating material requirements as well as time required and costing. Part cut sizes can be adjusted by edging thickness if desired. It works seamlessly with the Stock Control module for inventory control.

Cut Rite Destacking

Destacking

This module specializes in destacking your parts as efficiently as possible, based on rules that you provide. The layout of parts is graphically displayed for every pallet. It integrates with automatic destacking systems and cutting patterns are then created in accordance with your system and settings.
