Hi,

We are looking for a sort of auto-nesting/usable area software that will check for a disc best suited for a job.

We use Fanuc Robocut Wire EDM's to cut discs.

Every disc has an image that can be checked. These images will contain the areas that shouldn’t be cut; the software should be able to detect this and assign jobs suitable to the disc. For example, if there are 4 discs in an order, the software should check the database of images for the most suitable discs to cut to complete that order.

This should happen automatically and should be linked with JD Edwards.

It would suit us if this was carried out once a night for the orders the next day.

Is this possible or is there software available that can do this?

We have no set way of how we want to do this and are currently checking if there is software available that could help us.

Thanks
