SAL3D > AREA TOOL

The Area Tool allows the user to compute the area of COP profiles. Two types of area computation can be performed, both working for a single row of the COP.

Area with respects to a reference line

It provides the area of a single profile with respects to a reference line.

Area of a closed profile

Applications

  • Volume measure
  • Density checking: With the help of the Area Tool the volume of an object is obtained. Then, knowing its weight, the density can be easily calculated
  • Slicing: When automatically slicing food to be packed, neither extra material is desired nor can fewer product be given to the user. Computing the piece volume allows a precise cut with the exact weight.

This method allows the user to compute the area of a closed profile. This profile can be defined by a list of several profiles, as shown on the image.
