Cutting list optimization



Production with low scraps

Optimo was created to manage the production of both civil, and public works. The system allows different optimization solutions depending on the final product.

Optimo optimizes the machine’s space distributing the bars in different compartments, it minimizes the amount of scraps, it reduces the cutting cycles, (optimization of the cutting times), it optimizes the diameter change, it orders the cuts in the most convenient way according to the machine capacities, etc. Optimo is also an analysis tool, with which you can create multiple optimizations, evaluate our rebar shop and improve the production system.


Once a cutting process of a production order (or more) is completed, the system allows to know the real result, and to transmit one or more cutting lines for the production.

  • Minimize the amount of scraps
  • Grouping the repeated cycles to increase productivity
  • Reduced cutting times
  • Neat production to facilitate workers job
  • Reduction of handling operations of the machine’s carriage
  • Grouping different orders to improve optimization
  • Management of straight and bent wires
  • Management of scraps
  • Optimization of different lenghts of different storages
  • Management of the packages of the positions in order to improve the machine cutting and unloading processes

Cutting system by diameter

  • It maximizes the production order: it downloads any diameter in a machine compartment to later require a manual subdivision of the positions after the unloading. Depending on the machine, it allows to separate straight from bent wires. Extremely studied for civil engineering works and machines type Bat.
  • Maximum cutting capacity of the machine: it uses the maximum number of bars that the machine can cut at the same time.
  • Shorter production: The machine does not require any deposits. It divides only by diameter.
  • The division by element or by location will have to be done manually in a latter process.
  • The computer system facilitates the division into a manual motorized bench.

Cutting system by position

It optimizes the production order by placing the various positions in the available compartments.

It is advisable to use the machine with a minimum of 5 compartments with deposits to optimize an average of 9 or 10 positions simultaneously.

For a Barwiser it is needed a 7 compartments carriage to get the best optimization.

Ideal for public works where the final product is the position in machines such as the Shearline, Optibat or Barwiser.

There are two types of cutting by location. They can be use for any order or machine.

Cutting by position for civil works

In general for positions (labels) with a few bars. The system sets a position (labels) in each compartment of the machine.

Cutting by position for public works

For positions (labels) with high amount of bars.

This system allows the creation of the partial packs of the positions in order to improve the optimization. Each label can be divided into several packages (1/3, 2/3, 3/3). Bars in the same position are divided into different compartments, always identified by labels.

Cutting system by element

It optimizes the production order by splitting the elements in the machine compartments.

We suggest you a machine with 10 compartments to have a good optimization. We recommend you a Barwiser 26 with 25 compartments for the best optimization.

Recommended for civil works where the final product is the element on machines such as the Barwiser.

The bars that make the element, with different diameters, are discharged in the same compartment. The element is the final product and it is identified by a label for each element.
