Cutting Solutions
RCS Lumière

Key element of manufacturing process

RCS Lumière responds to the needs of the footwear, luggage and furniture manufacturing industries to allow video projection-aided cutting.
This is the software solution best suited to “open” cutting machines, such as those provided by the Swiss company Zünd or similar products.

The cutting room is the heart of the plant. If it can not deliver the required quantities of cut pieces at the right time, then all the company’s other activities

will suffer. The cutting process should be running at maximum productivity at all times in order to achieve its predetermined productivity targets, and allow

the greatest level of flexibility.

RCS Lumière is designed to manage three different but complementary functions:

  • Monitoring and classification of skins with defects or markings

  • Off line nesting with identification and nesting storage

  • On line nesting with machine code generation and unloading assistance

RCS is available in a variety of versions depending on your individual needs:

  • Lumière Entry

  • Lumière

  • Lumière Expert

RCS CUT in action

RCS Lumière takes you right through the entire cutting process, from nesting pieces on skins, either in manual, semi-automatic, or automatic mode, to the final cut.You will have all the necessary parameters, such as quality area, line, pattern point, etc, at your fingertips. Your cutter will have a powerful cutting part chart. It is updated in real time as you place your pieces.

Through RCS Lumière’s comprehensive repertoire of functions, which have been carefully fine-tuned through customer feedback, you can
enjoy a simple and productive product interface.


Your cutting workshop will be equipped with the most up-to-the-minute technology whatever materials you are working with (leather, fabric, cardboard) whatever your needs. In Off line mode it allows you
to work completely independently of your existing cutters.

RCS Lumière is fully integrated into RCS DM and provides you with an efficient means of overseeing quality control of skins, placement and cutting.
The part chart allows you to receive Work Orders (WO), manage your ERP in real time without having to re-enter data (ref. model, type of material, quantity
by size and model, etc.).Reports are generated automatically (Placement, Production, Parts, Consumption of Materials, Pre-Costing, etc.).


All data is stored in the RCS DM database and can be subject to any type of statistical analysis. A number of reports are supplied as standard with RCS DM.

  • Direct import of parts from RCS 2D or other CAD software.

  • Inspection, marking and categorisation of skins (3 in 1).

  • Fast and efficient placement of items in manual or automatic mode.

  • Retroprojection of placement directly on to the cutting table.

  • Compatibility with a variety of cutting machines, including market leaders (Zünd, Atom Comelz, Lectra), etc.
