Efficient and effective plate optimisation software

Are you involved in calculating or sawing plate material, then you can benefit from using Proteus Sawing, the system automatically calculates the most efficient plate layout for all your sawing orders? Not only does this save you plate material, it also saves preparation and production time.

Proteus Sawing easily guides you from order through to production. When you put in the BOM and specify the available materials, Proteus Sawing automatically generates the sawing scheme and protocols.

Optimisation and price calculation

Along with the optimisation are: the saw kerf, edges, veneer direction and the many possibilities regarding your machines. You can also directly view the costs of the plates. This makes for optimal support for your calculations and work planner. You can save and reuse all the optimisations.

Structured work

Proteus Sawing module also provides relationship management, allowing you to link optimisation to specific clients. The software utilizes a SQL database, allowing you to save your optimisations in a structured manner. All the data/information is in one place. All of this, together with a modern user interface give you all the right tools and resources to work as efficiently as possible.
