A+W iCut

A+W iCut is the newest addition to the A+W portfolio. It is the ideal solution for smaller fabricators seeking to better automate/optimize and manage their cutting function without the higher cost of a full ERP solution.

This software solution manages your glass storage, provides multiple optimization options, efficiently and accurately steers your cutter, and synchronizes glass for downstream processes.

Additionally, A+W iCut provides a system to manage residuals. By utilizing a residual plate management system, you ensure that in addition to the stock plates, the optimization also considers your valuable residual plates in order to achieve the best yield.

So, as your business grows, due in part to efficiencies gained at your cutter, additional A+W ERP functionality and tools can be added at a later time.

A+W SmartFactory

A+W SmartFactory is a high-level production system that coordinates the optimized flow of glass by controlling machines and their capacity. According to the principle of backward scheduling, the dispatch requirements, and thus ultimately customers, control the production sequence. Planning is done in real time and can be adjusted at any time to accommodate rush orders, capacity bottlenecks, machine failures, etc. Dispatch generally doesn't even notice this change, so on-time deliveries are almost a certainty.

A control center in A+W SmartFactory provides employees with a wide variety of information, and if necessary, allows them to intervene directly in production, by manually adjusting production chains, for example.

The intelligence required for this lies in the software that controls the communication between machines, and also between machines and human beings: a new industry standard on the path to Industry 4.0.
