X-Pact® plate cutting optimization

Best cuts for production of the finished plate

Challenges

  • Big deviations in plate shape or length can not be cut as scheduled

Solution

  • Measuring the as rolled plate shape and verify if the scheduled daughter plates fit into it
  • Adapting the cutting schedule for maximum yield

Technical advantages

  • Automatic corrections for measured/planned pattern mismatch
  • Current performance of the various shears is taken into consideration
  • Online information if one final dimension can not be cut

Productivity

  • Increase plant yield

Efficiency

  • Reduction of scrapped material
  • Minimizing of scrap
  • Maximum throughput rate of the shear line
