How it Works

Use AccuMark to Generate a Cut Plan
Users generate a cut plan very quickly using AccuMark’s Easy Plan module. Simply input model sizes, quantities, colors and fabric types or import these details from your ERP system. Easy Plan creates the cut plan automatically and generates all marker files needed. Users can interactively edit cut plan results.

Make Markers Automatically or Interactively.
When making markers, users have a choice. They can either place pieces manually or send markers to AccuNest™ for completely automated marker making. AccuNest employs powerful algorithms to analyze multiple nesting solutions and deliver the one with the highest material utilization.

AccuMark Generates a Cut Ticket with Barcode Containing Details for Each Spread.
AccuMark generates a cut ticket report and a barcode containing the marker name, material type and color, and number of plies needed for each spread in the work order.

Spreader Operator Scans the Barcode to Retrieve Spread Details.
The spreader operator simply scans the barcode and retrieves all necessary information to prepare the spread job including number of plies, spread length and spreading mode.

Paragon Cutter Operator Scans the Barcode to Retrieve the File to be Cut.
When the spread is complete, the spreading system’s wireless barcode printer generates a barcode label to attach to the top ply of the spread. The spread then travels to the Paragon cutter. The cutter operator scans the barcode to retrieve the proper cut file. This eliminates the possibility of cutting an incorrect marker and wasting costly material.

Managers Access Metrics that Matter to Track Work in Process.
After cutting the job, the Paragon system generates a report detailing the number of units cut (“metrics that matter”). With this information, managers are able to compare the details of the job cut with the original AccuMark Easy Plan cut ticket and track work in progress more accurately.
