Octoflex QuickKalk only takes into account the entered programming and set-up times proportionately to the quantity of parts. The user can choose between stored profiles in which different markup values and hourly rates are entered.
After the selection of the raw material and the machine has been made, the cutting part can be calculated in two different ways:
With the two Octoflex Special-Q controllers, the user can additionally select the free nesting area of the circumscribing rectangle of the component and further adjust the nesting probability to this free area. This reduces the calculated waste.
Alternatively, the user can choose from the standard panel sizes. By entering the parts per sheet, the material price is calculated according to the share for the single part price.
Before Octoflex QuickKalk can be used for calculation, the user has to configure the cutting machines and the individual and material-dependent cutting parameters once. In addition, the material prices needed to calculate the part price must be stored.
Furthermore, any number of profiles can be maintained with parameters for markups and offcuts.
