HoneycombOptimizer automatically considers two-sided cutting for laminated honeycomb (sheet flipping during the cutting process) and optimizes inventory management including use of remnants, as well as reducing time on machine set-up and tool changing. Plataine’s software has full visibility of the production floor’s overall performance, eliminates errors and drives process standardization to reach operational excellence.

HoneycombOptimizer increases factory material utilization while keeping an easy kitting process. Each kit is nested on its own, and the next kit begins right after the first one ends, ensuring an effective remnant strategy. An advanced learning algorithm runs each kit numerous times, ensuring quick run time.

Plataine’s solution enables easy and intuitive part importing and has a standard integration with both CAD and ERP systems to consider all parameters while eliminating human errors. This holistic approach considers all elements in real-time – HoneycombOptimizer optimally decides which orders will be processed, when, which material will be cut by which machine.

Avner Ben-Bassat, President & CEO at Plataine, says: “We are delighted to add new optimization capabilities to improve material utilization for honeycomb cutting operations. This breakthrough technology helps customers meet increased production rates and cost pressures while enabling production flexibility in the face of supply chain and workforce challenges. I am confident that this latest addition to Plataine’s TPO suite will shorten order-to-delivery and as a result improve our customers’ business.”
