Cutting automation & control


MindCUT is an integrated and modular set of solutions for optimization of production processes and automation of cutting systems, suitable Footwear and Leather Goods industries.

MindCUT Automatic Cutting System for Footwear & Leather Goods platform is based on an integrated and modular framework – MindCUT Studio -, delivering a a complete and configurable set of tools for automated cutting solutions, including digitizing and classification of materials, online and offline nesting, automatic or interactive nesting and precise cutting control.

A double head cutting system for fexible production. For demanding medium production volumes, the system adopts an innovative approach: the 3-stage sequence is performed in a dual and parallel production line.

1. Capture, Recognition and Automatic Nesting

The first work zone – an extension table of the cutting machine, equipped with a digital camera and a lighting system - is used for the leather hide deployment, marking, capture and recognition.

The automatic nesting is also performed on this work zone. Combined with the high resolution and accuracy of both the capture subsystem and conveyor movement, allows reducing to near-zero the margin between the parts, leather contour and quality regions - thus minimizing raw materials consumption.

2. Automatic Cut

When the leather hide is ready to be cut, it’s automatically moved to the second work zone - the machine’s cutting table.

The high precision of the automatic cut system allows parts to be immediately cutted at its final geometry, thus avoiding cut repetitions and material movements. A dynamic vacuum cell system fixes the leather hide for high reliability and cut quality.

3. Parts Picking

The picking is done on the third work zone – a final extension table of the cutting machine, equipped with a projector that highlights the parts to be picked.

Competitive advantages
