A New Optimized Cutting Method Based on Group Technology in the Structural Member Manufacturing
Considering low utilization rate of sheet metal, the low nature of a complete set and the overmuch work-in-process in the workshop during the process of the structural members of engineering machinery, this paper proposes a new optimized cutting method based on group technology with the basis of present sheet metal cutting. This method adopts the principles of divide and rule, which divides the processing cutting parts into several groups by clustering and deals with them separately. The method has been applied in industrial production and achieved good results.
