DCS – Device Control System is a software solution made to process cutting and plotting jobs for sheet material. DCS is a system which is able to control virtually any kind of output device mainly plotting and cutting machines. This includes all standard pen- and flat bed plotters (Hewlett Packard, Zuend, Graphtec, Wild, Roland, etc.)
DCS automatically layouts the patterns for quick output. Simple information tells the operator which material has to be used.
Interactive layout functions (used to process expensive materials such as polistyrol, aluminium, sheet metal, …) to optimize nesting of the patterns are available. DCS stores previous cutting data, which allows both the reuse of partially cut material (sheets) as well as the recut of patterns without complicated interaction of the operator.
DCS is an excellent tool to organize the cutting departments cutting jobs. May it be in a small enterprise, to save material and/or tool changing time, or in a multinational corporation where pattern cutting is not done in the same location as the design is created.
