Improve production rates

Easy-to-follow instructions pace the entire shearing operation, regardless of crew experience.

Reduce cutting errors

Information loaded from computer-generated instructions or scanned from barcoded tags eliminates the potential for erroneous entry by the operator.

Load tag info instantly

Connected hand-scanner loads tag information into the console’s memory by reading linear or 2D bar codes printed on production bundle tags.

Optimize on the fly

Automatically calculate cutting combinations right at the shearline; eliminates the need to plan entire production runs in advance.
