Cutting the Scrap

Blauer Pfeil
Gründer Pfeil

We offer a free filler part plug-in for CAD/CAM systems that reads the geometry of the residual surface of existing cutting plans, inserts simple parts from our database and manufactures them directly. For these, we issue a purchase guarantee to manufacturing companies. We offer purchasers the resulting parts at favorable conditions.

In this way, one manufacturer's waste becomes another manufacturer's input, and together we save the environment and resources.

Problem

20% production waste in subtractive manufacturing

It is impossible for cutting companies to fully utilise their production capacities.
Where something is cut out, something is left over.

In the industrial cutting of wood, metal and textiles, the average is 20%.

This is not only an ecological problem, but also an economic one: Paid material that was already ready for processing on the machine has to be stored or disposed of - usually at high cost.

Conservatively estimated, over 5 billion euros end up in the bin every year, in Germany alone and only in the wood, metal and textile sectors.

Why has this been hard to change?

Existing fillerpart functions are too expensive to find their way into widespread practice

Storage of offcuts for further use is associated with high storage costs

For small and medium quantities, distribution is generally not worthwhile

Sounds familiar?

Solution

Upcycling on an industrial level

Our software offers manufacturers the opportunity to reduce their waste, the associated costs and the CO2 footprint of their company without additional effort - and buyers to source their material from environmentally friendly value creation.

Status Quo

Manufacturers use new material...

...produce ~20% scrap

Network

We connect Manufacturers and purchasers

Horizontal Integration

Purchase guarantee and collection by logistics partner

The waste of the producers becomes the input of the buyers

Information for Cutters

Our filling part plug-in for CAD/CAM systems is free of charge and fits seamlessly into your processes.

It automatically supplements your cutting plans - be it wood, metal or textile - with our filling parts. We take these parts, which are produced in the same work step, from you at a fixed price. Our partners take care of the logistics.

In addition, we will provide you with concrete data on the amount of waste you still produce and how much CO2 you have saved with us.

Information for Buyers

With the purchase of our products, you obtain high-quality industrial goods that would previously have ended up in the garbage.

This way, you not only buy your goods locally and below market price, but also contribute to an environmentally friendly value creation process.

Currently we nest Euro standard sizes up to a maximum of 120*80cm (= Euro pallet) in order to keep the complexity low for us and our partners.

If you require a specific format that deviates from this, we will be happy to make you an offer.
