Pallet Optimization Software PalOPTI
Find the best product size, case count, package size and pallet load. Vary packages of self-defined size, weight and shape (rectangular or round bases – variable according to your preferences) in your preferred container types (e.g. pallet oder truck). Our longtime expert knowledge based on the development of pallet optimization software strongly infl uenced the features and advantages of palOPTI.

Simultaneous display of several optimized packaging solutions
Report of storage space, utilization of area and volume
Visualization of hidden layers, display usage of packaging unit
Sensitivity analysis calculates impact of minimal variations of package size on package numbers
Individual rearrangement of package layers
Highly Adaptable Outputs yield Various Possible Applications in your Company
Variable design options for the packing instruction and its elements regarding position, size, contents, and format (e.g. b/w, coloured, font)
Output on a printer or to different file formats e.g. PDF, BMP, GIF, JPG, TIF
Output of results in: D, GB, F, NL, PL, E, I, SK, RO
2-Stage Analysis: Smaller Cases are positioned best in Larger Packaging Units. Optimization Possibilities are
Variable arrangement of primary packaging units
Optimization of larger packaging units based on predetermined arrangement
Consideration of material thickness
Selection of best outer packaging out of different available packages
Transfer data results from 2-stage into 1-stage
Accurate input requirements for package and layer numbers

Customize your 1-stage or 2-stage Version to your specific requirements! For our pallet optimizing program there are various modules available, which give you the choice to optimally stock up the program. In addition is also offered in a network version to use in your whole company network.
Module „Cargo Securing“
Make sure to have the best possible safety for your goods in transit! Cargo Securing lets you add edge protection, strapping, pallets, intermediate layers or boards into your packing order, for a higher grade of safety.
You pick a safeguard you want to use and choose the dimensions: width of the strappings, strength of the board, thickness of the intermediate layer etc. The options are saved within the packing configuration.
Module „Manual Arrangement” for 1-Stage Analysis
Generate individual packing patterns within that go beyond the optimizing calculation! With the use of manual arrangement you can supplement packages in every orientation you like, paste single packages, a tower, or a whole arrangement. Shift, rotate or delete them. Now you generate packing patterns exactly according to the wishes of your client!
This way it is also possible to fi ll gaps in the arrangement with packages of other orientations, to fill the loading space in the container or on the pallet with the highest possible number of packages.
A network license gives you the possibility to use in your whole company network. The installation is as easy as it could be: once is installed on the server you can run it from every client in your network.
For installations or updates of only modifi cation of the server installation is required. Every user always works with the same up-to-date software version!
In addition you benefi t from a shared data pool as you access the packing patterns with every connected client.
Do not only use different output languages in , but let your international employees work with a user interface in their own language.
The following languages are included in the module: English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Slovakian, and Romanian. Please inquire for further languages!
Of course you have the possibility in to control the output language independently of the used program language: this way you do your calculations in in English and create your packing instructions for example in German, Polish, etc.
