The A+W Static Optimizer is the successor to the classical stand-alone solution XOPT. Cut sizes, rectangles, and shapes can be entered manually or imported via an interface file. An improved optimization algorithm guarantees minimum waste and at the same time guarantees the most appropriate cutting patterns for an easy breakout at the cutting tables. After optimization, the cutting plans can be modified manually.
The A+W CAD Designer makes it possible to capture disk or contour data, all machining operations, the transfer of customer CAD data, and the digitization of templates, using a digitizing table or virtual digitizing, for example. From this data, A+W CAD Designer generates CNC codes for automatic cutting machines and processing machines (e.g., positioning parameters, grinding codes and drilling instructions as well as drawings for commercial papers and production).
A+W CAD Designer Automotive particularly supports the requirements resulting from the production conditions of automotive glass. Special digitizing methods allow swift digitizing of templates. Highly specialized tools facilitate the smoothing and correction of shapes. A special machine axis helps to position the shape on the line. Peculiarities of different line layouts are taken into account. NC programs for all machines of a line are generated in one step. Several production lines can be controlled by just one A+W CAD Designer file. A+W CAD Designer comprehensively supports automotive glass production.
