How to Reduce the Material Waste and Increase Productivity Right on Your Workplace.

GNCutter - Coil and Panel Cutting Optimizer for PDA

If you're glazier, carpenter, machinist, sheet metal worker or drywall installer then you regularly cut pieces from glass, metal, veneer or drywall sheets. Before cutting, you must figure out how-to-cut all required pieces from standard-sized sheets with minimal waste of material. It's great when you have the parts layout plan ready and you don't need to puzzle over it, but in some cases you still need do it by yourself.
This can happen when you visit your clients or at construction site or at your workshop - you name it. Until now you were alone with "how-to-cut" problems at your workplace and only your experience could help to resolve it.

Can you imagine having a smart optimizer in your pocket that can easily find out how to cut all necessary pieces with lightning speed! It'll dramatically improve your productivity and get more projects done than ever before. In addition you'll save a lot of expensive material (glass, metal, marble or veneer) and hence your money.

Explosive expanding of handheld devices market dramatically improved the performance of PDAs, Pocket PCs and Smartphones that now can make complex mathematical calculations with a significant speed. We've combined the latest mobile technologies and new robust state-of-art optimization algorithms and made a unique cutting optimizer GNCutter capable to solve complex coil and panel cutting problems at your workplaces, right where it's most wanted. You can upload GNCutter to your Pocket PC or Smartphone and bring anywhere in your pocket!

GNCutter is available for free trial period of 30 days. After downloading GNCutter and installing on your Pocket PC you can play with the examples we provided or solve your own cutting optimization tasks and see how easily and smoothly your problems will be solved!
