Knife assembly software

Our knife assembly module toii®.Cut addresses one of the core competencies of steel service center operators - the calculation of knives.

Knife calculation is crucial for meeting customer specifications when manufacturing products on slitting lines. In addition, knife calculation is a key factor for steel service center operators in systematically reducing scrap and optimizing tool utilization to increase tool life. The automated calculation of knives increases process reliability and contributes to an efficient and effective design of the value chain in accordance with the principles of lean management.
