VisionCUT manual placement: general features
Apparently nothing can be simpler than this technology. You see the shape projected on the fabric, you move it where you want, and the shape will be cut exactly there. The technology behind this is nothing but simple. However, it took a lot of innovative efforts to be implemented.
VisionCUT is a solution developed for automatic roll feed or sheet feed cutting processing, when this involves cutting a shape from a distorted media like: printed fabrics, carpets, airbags, boat sails etc.
Usually, such material presents manufacturing distortions, due to the elasticity, dilatation and contraction, or the imprecision of printing or weaving process. If the cutter would follow the original precise cut-path, this would not follow the contour of the actual shape, and the result of cutting will be unacceptable.
The main goal of the application is to identify the position and distortion of the shape while the media is fed into the cutter, and to compensate for this by distorting the cut file within a given set of rules and restrictions.
