Tension Free Cuts

MaxCut optimizes your cutting layouts. A standout feature is tension-free cuts.


What is a tension-free cut?

A material cut under stress is bad because it causes it to break or splinter. Tension-free cuts remove as much stress as possible from the cutting process.


Why do tension-free cuts?

  1. Precision: You get a precise, accurate cut. When a material is cut under stress, it shifts or moves. This results in an uneven or misaligned cut. Tension-free cuts avoid this.
  2. Integrity: You preserve the integrity of the material. When a material is cut under stress it can break or splinter. This compromises its overall strength and durability. Tension-free cuts avoid this.
  3. Appearance: Tension-free cuts avoid splinters and rough edges. You get a product that has a smooth and polished appearance.


How do you make a tension-free cut?

Rough-cut your panels slightly larger than your intended final dimensions. Then, re-cut each panel, doing a precision cut. This is your tension-free cut.


How does MaxCuy support tension-free cuts?

Each panel has a long and short "expansion" field. You specify how much larger you want your "rough cut" to be. MaxCut adjusts your panel sizes and reports accordingly.


To sum up, MaxCut's powerful panel expansion capabilities help you achieve the perfect cutting finish through tension-free cuts.
