The main players


is a sequence-creating, dynamic optimization and cutting control system for cutting, breakout, and sorting, with the option of additional dispatch control via RackOpt (trans-port rack optimization). DynOpt controls automatic sorting systems like HEGLA’s SortJet or BYSTRONIC’s first’sort. As an ALCIM module, DynOpt creates every desired pro-duction sequence with top yield, thanks to the restriction-free cutting followed by dynamic sorting.

XOPT-ON Dynamic

is a real-time cutting control system for creating highly flexible optimization jobs while keeping residue plates to a minimum. Due to the constant use of residue plates and the possibility to cut stockplates of different glass types alternately, the overall yield may be improved by several percent. Ideal for the real-time addition of remakes and rush orders.
