Roll-formed production of steel framing brings several advantages over traditional construction methods, including significantly reduced wastage.
The process is incredibly efficient, yet VIRI Technologija, a Lithuanian steel fabrication company, believed they could optimise it even further.
As a Howick distributor which uses our machines to fabricate steel, VIRI has always been driven to reduce waste, so they came up with an innovative, automated solution to make it happen.
The industry experts at VIRI designed CSVizer - a specially engineered software that optimises every CSV file required for roll-formed steel manufacturing. It does this by processing millions of potential combinations and selecting the best one to significantly reduce waste.
To test their new software, VIRI designed, engineered and produced decorative snowflake frames, ‘Project Snowflakes’, for the Christmas area for their New Year Tree opening ceremony.
By using CSVizer, VIRI managed to produce their steel snowflakes with just 4.71kg of offcuts. Without the software, this would have been 21.81kg – a material wastage saving of 78%.
