This complete integration reduces dramatically the errors in parts handling and storage, providing a solid infrastructure for just-in-time production and mass customisation. The information used for collecting strategy is taken directly form the design and order file. The software is capable to process in parallel information from different markers. In this way the program can collect parts making part of the same article in the same basket, even if they are separately cut from different fabrics. Our collecting solution is developed for any automatic single ply or high ply cutter with conveyor table, and it helps collecting the cut parts by high-lighting the next piece or the next group of pieces to be collected
and printing the corresponding label for them. The level of automation is so high, that the operator doesn’t needs to have any kind of knowledge about the product itself. The product complexity is no longer a challenge for collecting.
The Cut Collect Assistant System is linked directly to the offload conveyor table of the cutting machine and the collecting process is synchronized with the belt movement. Collecting and piece depositing is assisted by a video projector using an advanced ergonomic and customizable stand-alone software package. The bundling strategies are fully customizable and as well is the patterns highlighting. (index, colour, pattern, etc.).
