Commissioning support for contour-cut foams

The parts which actually need to be taken away appear in green colour on the screen, parts which were already taken away are red-coloured.With the new software module Fecken-Kirfel has implemented a commissioning support as a further development to the existing fully automatic nesting systems. This new module is working in a similar way as other already in the market existing commissioning systems which are applied for cutting machines in the textile and leather industry. The software simplifies the handling of cut contour parts both for smaller and larger quantities. The allocation of the foam parts or of their packaging is made much easier and therefore accelerated. Other optimised software solutions from the AutoRouting to the Interactive 3D-Nesting complete the software package.In order to be able to reasonably and efficiently process the huge amounts of contour parts which are generated at the high cutting speed of the vertical contour cutting machine, it is necessary to support the operator concerning the commissioning. Pick by View is displaying the cut layer pattern on a huge screen in the way it is appearing in front of the operator. Within the displayed layer pattern those contour parts which have to be taken away next are highlighted in colour so that the operator can easily identify them and allocate them to the corresponding commission.Parallel to this step it is also possible to print out self-adhesive labels which can then be sticked by the operator to the displayed part. These labels serve for a later identification of the parts in stock or for further processing steps. They contain e. g. information such as the contour name, foam quality, graphical illustration of the contour or other customer-specific information.According to Fecken-Kirfel, the new software module Pick by View considerably increases the efficiency of the contour cutting machine once more.
