Optimization is a must. Effort is not.

Almost every sheet metal part undergoes an optimization process. But you get to decide how complex it needs to be: With Optimate, you check the feasibility of your part at the push of a button and receive optimization suggestions for your design.


Optimate in 110 seconds.

Get to know us: in just under two minutes, we clearly explain what Optimate actually does and how you can benefit from our digital service. Click the play button, ready, go!


This is what we have to offer.

Guaranteed process reliability

We check your sheet metal parts for feasibility. This way, any need for reworking is identified before a part goes into work preparation or into production. Flange lengths that fall short are detected in the Optimate App and adjusted to the minimum flange dimension – with just one click.

We provide advice on how to optimize your design, for example if cut-outs are located too close to the bending zone, the inner bending radius is too small or the minimum hole diameter is not reached. Reduction of your process costs and optimization of the production process.


Warnings, such as shortfalls in flange length, are displayed and can be adjusted with just one click.

Potential Recognition

We determine the optimization potential for each sheet metal part and provide a rough estimate of the cost savings. The sheet metal parts can then be reworked manually by you, externally via our parts consulting service, or quickly and easily with our new 'Automated Optimization' feature.

Automated Optimization

We redesign optimizable parts fully automatically and offer you alternative solutions for your sheet metal part. The suggestions can then be downloaded as a CAD file. This way, you get the maximum economic benefit from your sheet metal part.

Highly optimizable

Intelligent redesign eliminates the need for welding, for example, and results in enormous cost savings.

Calculating costs

Our cost calculation determines the price for your sheet metal part at the push of a button, based on the costs for material, scrap and production (laser cutting, bending and welding).

You get a price estimation for your part within a few seconds. The total costs are displayed depending on the batch size.

Identifying cost drivers

The detailed breakdown of cost factors allows you to identify the cost drivers in your part at a glance.

This allows you to make adjustments during the development process and take targeted measures to optimize costs.
