cutting software

The cutting room is the heart of the plant. If it cannot 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 provides the technology for video projection-aided cutting, responding to the needs of the footwear, luggage, furniture manufacturing industries, etc. This is the software solution best suited to ‘open’ cutting machines, such as those provided by the Swiss company SABAL, ZUND or equivalent.


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, grain line, pattern point, etc, at your fingertips. Your cutter will have the use of a powerful cutting chart. It is updated in real time as you place your pieces.

Thanks to RCS Lumière’s comprehensive repertoire of features developed and 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), according to your needs. In Off Line mode it allows
you to work completely independently of your existing cutters.
