aSa Rebar Production Software

aSa Production creates tags, fabrication reports, and load check-off lists for each order that you produce. Its optional Computer Shearing module saves time and material by giving your shop crew specific instructions for cutting, packaging, and handling each bundle of steel with maximum efficiency. aSa-generated equipment interfaces automate your machinery with electronic instructions, nearly eliminating setup time and greatly reducing the chance of human error.

The aSa Difference.
Unlike other applications that simply optimize cutting combinations, aSa Computer Shearing considers the entire fabrication process, including crane calls, bundling, and material movement. This means not only will you improve material yield, you’ll increase overall production rates.

  • Achieve total shop management 
    Easy-to-read schedules, tags, and reports guide your crew through the entire fabrication process, from shake-out, to cutting, tagging, crane calls, bending, end preparation, material movement, and trailer loading.
  • Boost production rates and reduce scrap 
    Material yield, shop environment, and time are all considered in aSa’s computer-generated shearing instructions.
  • Prevent shortages 
    aSa creates handy check-off sheets to verify that each required bundle of steel is loaded for shipment and nothing gets left behind. aSa’s Material Tracking module can be added to automate this process even further.
  • Get more from your machinery 
    By automating your equipment with aSa-generated instructions, you eliminate the need for an operator to manually enter details, saving time and reducing the chance of errors. For the ultimate in productivity, connect to the aSa Opto-Shear Console.
  • Take the guesswork out of material handling
    Based on parameters that you define, the system automatically assigns items to the appropriate shearline or off-coil machine. Easy-to-apply production options let you override the default assignment when a machine is down or over-capacity.
