TRIM optimization with TRIM SUITE

Companies in the paper and packaging industry are all struggling with the same problem: manual planning of cutting plans is time-consuming and does not always provide the optimal solution. Employees are busy for hours to optimize one single cutting plan.

T.CON’s TRIM SUITE is fully featured and integrated into your work process. TRIM SUITE creates and compares results within seconds, it is easy to use and can maximize savings by defining costs for various aspects of production, including material loss, knife changes, storage or yield.
