Webcast: Optimizing Yield in Panel Processing

Posted: 07/09/2013 11:00AM

 

Raw material pricing is on the rise, so getting more from each panel during production is critical.

Our experts will present ways to reduce waste, including some new approaches that rely on increasingly on machine intelligence to calculate the best cut patterns, and automated materials handling to minimize damage during material transfer.

We’ll also take a look at panels produced in unique dimensions to further enhance yield in live production. Advantages of using prefinished panels to increase throughput, reduce factory emissions and improve overall manufacturing efficiency will be examined.
