Coil Trim Optimizer
Visual8’s Coil Trim Optimizer (CTO) is designed for producers of slit coil to manage customer orders across finishing plants where typically orders are for less than whole-coil quantities. The ideal way to reduce trim and finished goods inventory is to have the plants try to marry similar orders onto the same coil. An order marriage combines similar orders (alloy, temper, gauge) onto coils to fulfill the required slit-width orders and minimize trim.
A leading producer of light-gauge aluminum products currently using CTO was able to achieve a 10% reduction in trim losses on a weekly basis. This translated into the equivalent of over 400,000 lbs of metal at a time, roughly 10-12 full coils, which saves the company over $1,000,000 per annum. Read More
