Company profile

The Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI conducts research in the field of computer simulations for product and process development, and is a prominent corporate partner in the industrial and science sectors.

Fraunhofer SCAI's optimization software solutions contribute to the efficient use of resources and reduced consumption of materials. We offer solutions for the optimized cutting of wood, leather hides, fabrics, sheet metal, steel profiles, composites, foams and other raw materials. Our software PackAssistant calculates optimized packaging solutions for the space-saving storage of components in containers.
Furthermore, we offer tools for optimization of machine-loading in manufacturing processes.

Within the CoilNest project, the Fraunhofer Institute SCAI has developed a software for cost and waste minimization in the pressing of car body parts. In advance of the deep drawing process for car body production, between 50 and 100 blanks are pressed out of various coils. Optimized nesting of the more


AutoNester-T optimizes the automatic placement of markers onto fabric panels. By configuring the optimal nesting pattern, the software minimizes the amount of wasted fabric. Leading manufacturers in the garment and upholstery industries already implement this software to optimize their production. AutoNester-L more


PackAssistant is the leading software in the field of optimizing packing configurations of identical parts into containers. The time-consuming process of trying to configure complex geometrical shapes into containers manually, with often non-optimal solutions, is a thing of the past. PackAssistant instead more

Services Material Flow Simulation

Material Flow Simulation facilitates simulation and optimization for sourcing, production and storage. Fraunhofer SCAI developes individual solutions for optimization by performing modellings of logistic processes with the computer and by acting out different scenarios, for example concerning the configuration more
