Spread & Cut Planner

Gemini Spread & Cut Planner


Gemini Spread & Cut Planner is the link between the design room and the cutting room. It provides fast and high-quality automatic or interactive optimization for the spreading and cutting operations.

The operator inputs the quantity of products ordered the client for each model, size and fabric, and some general settings regarding cutting conditions such as preferred spreading length, the maximum number of sheets in the lay or the fabric width. This information can also be retrieved automatically from the company’s ERP system. The Gemini Spread&Cut Planner application can automatically generate the most efficient plan for the product grouping and distribution, so a minimal number of markers and lays are needed to obtain the ordered quantities.


This automatic operation doesn’t take more than 1-2 minutes. The user may choose among several automatic and manual or semiautomatic lay planning strategies, so the best results are achieved every time.

The entire order, containing the cutting plan and a collection of lays and optimized markers are stored in one centralised file, easy to store and share. A Cut Plan Report offers a comprehensive view over the effort, time, consume and efficiency of each order passing the cutting room and provides clear information for operators on spreaders and cutters.
