OptiTex has released a new software module to help users of its systems cut material waste and control production costs when handling smaller order sizes.

The new CutPlan tool provides production teams with detailed spreading information for multi-colour plies and offers a superior nesting engine for maximum market efficiency, OptiTex says.

The software helps the user define fabric quantities, properties, size, cost and weight.

It then provides accurate cost production calculations in the form of real time Excel and XML file reports file for all the stored data and nested MRK files.

"By broadening our software range to accommodate multi colour plies, we make the world more colourful by allowing users to produce accurate cuts for more of their lines," says OptiTex CEO Ran Machtinger.
