Compucut® - Current version 5.0.8
Intelligent exchange of data between prepress and postpress
For more than 30 years, Compucut® has generated cutting programs outside the high-speed cutter - totally eliminating the programming procedure at the machine.
The POLAR software Compucut® is available in three different versions:
Compucut® GO is a simple solution to automatically transfer cutting data. Go runs directly on a flash drive with no need to be installed on a PC. It is possible to process homogeneous shapes as well as gang runs.
Compucut® CONTROL offers the software’s full functional scope with visual display and manual intervention. This means the data can be modified for further processing (folding, glue binding or saddle stitching). Chip-outs can be integrated or eliminated. The cutting programs are created “offmachine” on a single PC. Afterwards it is sent to the machine or the External Cutting Program Administration (ESPV) which can be accessed by each cutting machine integrated into the network.
Compucut® AUTO-CONTROL offers the same scope as for CONTROL. It develops cutting programs completely automatically – with no manual intervention. The optimum cutting sequence with the fewest turns and cuts is automatically selected. Thus, operating errors are fully eliminated. Just as CONTROL it sends the finished cutting programs either directly to the machine or to ESPV.
