Discover How OptimiserX Filler Technology Reduces Glass Waste and Production Costs

Reducing glass waste is a huge challenge for any glass production company.

No-offcut optimisation is therefore critical when it comes to improving your productivity and saving costs.

Most importantly, with optimisation, you reduce handling of offcuts and minimise the potential for throwing these in the cullet bin.

Integrated OptimiserX Filler Piece technology from Jotika is unique and innovative software that delivers increased flexibility on glass runs and minimises wastage.

Benefits include:

  • No offcuts (and no offcut stockpiling)
  • No additional sheets dropped (automatically fills to deliver the best possible packing density on runs – plus original number of stock sheets used does not increase)
  • Improved shop-floor logistics (‘Just in Time’ lean manufacture provides greater flexibility for production, without affecting glass yields)
  • More efficient working delivers continuous production (great for smaller runs when needed)
  • Significant cost savings (for example, a recent application delivered 42% savings = 26% average gross waste levels reduced to 15%).
