IntelliView Acquisition System & Nesting Module
“Separates the Positioning Phase from the Cutting Phase”
The ATOM IntelliView Leather Hide Acquisition System & Nesting Module is composed of a working table equipped with high luminosity projectors, cameras and an intelligent software program able to recognize the material contour and assist the operator in marking the quality areas & automatically nest the pieces of the components on the leather hides. The final goal is to create a set of layouts related to a batch of hides ready to be cut on the ATOM Knife Cutting System; the proper layout (nest) is loaded and the cutting cycle begins. It is crucial to use a highly optimized nesting algorithm to maximize the material yield. ATOM offers multiple solutions with unique features for the footwear and leather-goods industry. The ATOM Automatic Nesting Packages guarantees high calculation speed thanks to the multi-processor software & notable savings in material utilization.
The skilled operator can be dedicated to the delicate phase of hide inspection & nesting only, leaving the cutting phase to the unskilled operator. The high luminosity projection system allows perfect visibility of the shapes on the most difficult leather hides in terms of dark colors or a shiny surface. The high resolution camera allows the system to quickly detect the contour of each hide along with marking the quality areas & its defects. The purpose of this operation is to supply all the data pertinent to the ATOM nesting strategies in order to increase the overall leather savings. In addition, both models, IntelliView 1510 & 3015, are available with a vacuum system for the working table, which allows the operator to flatten wavy leather and even thick leather for soles, ensuring precise acquisition & nesting.
