Reducing Waste vs. Paying Waste Tax

Update 12.09.2022: Last week, on September 5th , we sent you an e-mail asking to send us a photo of a physical cutting including filler parts until today. Most of you did this and we are very happy to see so many people supporting & joining our mission to fight industrial waste!

If you forgot: Please send us the photo or make a ‘waste-tax payment’.

After Wednesday, September 28th, our services will only be available to users who complied.did one of the two.

In order to use our service,

  1. Please send us a photo of a physical cutting including filler parts together with the respective cutting plan ID to info@normcut.com (ID will be printed to the Rhino command line while nesting or can be found in your personal nesting history)

or

  1. If you have good reasons not to do so but want to continue using our service: We won’t charge you for nesting, but we will charge you a waste tax: In the long run, since we want to set your incentives to minimize waste right, payment will work like this:
  • if your material efficiency is below 80%, we will charge you €1 per nesting.
  • if your material efficiency is below 70%, we will charge you €1.50 per nesting.
  • if your material efficiency is below 60%, we will charge you €2 per nesting.

To keep things easy for now, we kindly ask you to make a symbolic payment of 10€ here.

Why#

Since our Mission at Normcut is to minimize waste, we want the maximum number of people to use the best nesting possible. That’s why we try to avoid charging for our services. We prefer you to pay the bills – and we guess you also do – with your waste.

This is the reason, why we have such a strong focus on filling up the unused space in your cutting plans with smaller parts. In the long run, we will market these parts for you and take a commission on that – to pay OUR bills. Makes sense?
