Packing and static calculation
The basic module is Cratemaker’s core and serves to create box, pallet and crate parts lists, which provide the cutting data as well as including the construction specification.
The module contains the following functions:
- Cutting lists
- Construction specification
- Statics calculation
- Quick calculation
- Status sheet for production and packing (QS)
- Supplementary sheet
- Project management
- Calculation guides (such as for wedge, tangent and circular arches)
- Management of customer standard types
Individual employees check the different aspects related to the quality and production status using the status sheet. The production status is automatically set in the status sheet via the administrator tool by scanning the document using a barcode. The scanned sheet is attached to the packing job by the administrator tool and can be viewed at any time. What’s more, other files can also be attached to a packing job. This applies to text documents as well as photos or films.
If you have always had to account for high error rates while new staff are being trained, these will now reduce dramatically. As an additional extra, your production quality will increase considerably. Your production monitoring frequency can therefore be reduced without any loss of quality.
In future, it will no longer be necessary to develop individual formulas and check that these work using test series. Cratemaker crates have already been tested, packed and sent all over the world thousands of times by many companies.
The basic module already includes statics for floor and roof calculation, which are very easy to use.
Cratemaker includes parts lists for timber crates and boxes as well as for plywood or OSB crates, square timber and block pallets in addition to different support programmes for constructing frames. Different deadlines can be assigned to every packing or construction job, which can be monitored automatically in the optional schedule provided.
