Product Description:

As such you need systems that can scrutinise and enhance the production process as a whole, from cutting through to completion.

Optimiser X is Gtrak 3 ERP’s optimisation module and has been customised to work in a number of different environments to get the best out of your raw materials and minimise wastage and maximise efficiency.

Gtraks OptimiserX offers optimisation of the following items:

  • Glass
  • Furnace bed
  • Spacer bars
  • Acrylics
  • Pleated blind material
  • PVB

Once the optimisation has been carried out, Optimiser X has been configured to fully integrate with leading machines such as glass cutting tables, loaders and system manufacturers including offcut management systems such as Hegla ReMaster, as well as downstream processing such as spacer saws, benders, and IG robot sealing lines and laser marking devices.

In addition to glass waste reduction, OptimiserX has been developed for “No-Offcut” glass optimisation, where work is filled automatically by bringing forward elements of unplanned work to help eliminate offcut generation and increase overall packing density. This method of optimisation has replaced the old style continuous optimisation, as it minimises waste, whilst keeping smaller batches for greater production flexibility. An added benefit is to reduce manual handling for storage and retrieval of offcuts. The internal reject tracking systems means rejects can be automatically reprocessed.

In conjunction with advice from Jotikas’ experienced consultants, migrating to Gtrak 3 ERP’s Optimiser X can have immediate and substantial benefits to your business. Not only will you notice material savings during the cutting stage, our consultants can help you identify how to batch more efficiently so you will also significantly reduce manufacturing time and costs.
