Autolaunch Lineal Optimiser
The free download is here. Free to download, free to use.
All construction materials like steel, aluminium, wood, PVCu and indeed almost anything, are generally only available in a limited number of standard stock lengths. Typically a fabricator will buy stock lengths of various materials which are then cut into smaller pieces for the next fabrication process. To reduce the cost of wasted raw materials, it's necessary to produce an optimum cutting route plan, which minimises wastage. This can be a rather awkward and potentially wasteful process if attempted manually. And even when the buying process has been manually calculated, the method of cutting and parts identification still needs to be firmly pinned to the mast, to ensure the factory uses the same route plan when the goods are actually cut.
The Autolaunch Lineal Optimiser solves this problem, being a simple to use stand alone optimiser. It's useful even if you have full cad-cam systems for those oddball parts of production that your existing computer software doesn't yet deal with.
Accurate nesting can be a complex calculation when manually undertaken. Why not let the Autolaunch Lineal Optimiser take the strain. And even better, it's fully functioning software that is absolutely free- no catch - no gimmick - no registration fee - no lets buy the next version. Like Freehostia who host this web site, it is absolutely free with no gimmicks.
Why is the Autolaunch Lineal Optimiser Free?
It is a rather specialist type of software that can never sell in volume, hence it's 1997 unit price of £150, would be a very big ask to the casual user!! It was released in 1997 but has now found a new lease of life. Now that the Autolaunch Lineal Optimiser is available with an in built DOS emulator (Jos Schaars excellent Vdos), It is simple to download, install and run, without any of the tricky settings traditionally associated with DOS programs. It even prints directly to your default Windows Printer!
Let's look at the upside
Lets take a look at a typical cutting job input screen
Once you have entered everything that you want to cut, press F9 and immediately, the report below will be on your screen.
The Autolaunch Lineal Optimiser stores up to 100 different sizes to cut. Up to 17 different bars to cut per job and finally 20 different jobs. New sub directories (folders) can be added to expand this limitlessly.
