Expert Business and Shop Floor Solution
CyFrame’s mission is helping profile extruders to structure and grow their operation profitably. Our "Ready-To-Use" business and shop floor solutions leverage 30 years of industry experience and know-how.
Engineered to eliminate the need for complex operation workflows and expensive customization, we have a proven track record delivering results faster at the lowest cost of ownership.
Integrating a Complete Order Process
CyFrame software is not just limited to building the "bill of materials" for profile extrusion products. Our solution covers the entire order process, tracking every operating step that is pertinent to profile extruders.
- Automates MRP, forecast-driven purchase orders, and work-order generation
- Tracks the raw material lots that are received (e.g. resin, color, additives)
- Calculates regrind and MRP/inventory for single and co-ex profile extrusion recipes
- Manages single and multiple work orders with drag and drop scheduling
- Real-Time machine monitoring
- Tracks production yield accepted-to-rejected parts
- Calculates production costs and profitability (by part, by shift, by day)
- Tracks KPIs (i.e. speed, efficiency, yield, raw material consumption, rejects, downtime)
- Extensive support of secondary and downstream line equipment (e.g. calibrators, cooling equipment)
- Tracks all metrics (pounds/hour, feet/minute, pounds/1000 feet, grams per foot)
- Supports assembly and subcontracting
- Tracks the exact location of finished goods across multiple warehouses
- Automated material certification and required export documentation
- Tracks products in-transit from one or multiple warehouses to final delivery
- Full truckload optimization
Eliminate Data Entry & BOM Maintenance
CyFrame’s ERP significantly reduces the time required to create and maintain new products, place orders, and manage production. It also efficiently allocates and configures machines, dies, line equipment, regular and co-ex recipes as well as packaging as separate dynamic components that can be quickly attached to finished extruded products. All changes are instantly updated at the master product, sales quote, order and work order stages to eliminate the need for repetitive data entry saving valuable time.
Flexible and Timely Work Order Recipe Management
The flexibility of CyFrame’s ERP makes it uniquely able to accommodate changes before, during, and after production. This facilitates recipe substitutions and the tracking of part weights for production to accurately calculate raw material consumption and exact costs.
Extrusion and Co-Ex
Scheduling complex work orders involving downstream equipment can be a nightmare. We embrace these complexities and are able to plan production lines with secondary co-ex machines and auxiliary equipment, including calibrators, cooling tanks, takeoffs and much more.
To further reduce costs, CyFrame plans and tracks the optimal usage of regrind in product recipes and allocates the appropriate raw material according to available inventory.
All these functionalities are included in our standard workflow for profile extrusion.
Real-Time Visibility with Shop Floor Data Acquisition
CyFrame live shop floor data acquisition is included as a standard feature, making it accessible to all profile extrudes, small or large. The solution tracks production quantities and efficiency in real-time while managing lot control, rejects, downtime, setup and production time.
Drag-and-Drop Company-Wide Scheduling
CyFrame’s integrated scheduling ensures each department has what’s required to fulfill customers’ orders to meet on-time delivery:
- MRP live verification of virgin resins, colors, additives and regrind material availability
- Machine and labor capacity
- Detects and rectifies machine and line equipment conflicts
- Schedules preventive maintenance
- Tracks on-time delivery
- Optimizes color changeover

Price Lists that adapt to Resin Price Fluctuation
Give your company every opportunity to adjust prices and protect margins as resin costs change. CyFrame fully automates this process, precisely accounting for each product configuration (i.e. resin, color, additives and their respective recipe percentages) to save valuable time. Users can now fully review, update and email a new price list in just a few hours.
Managing in the Profitability Triangle
Simple Financial and Distribution Integration
CyFrame’s easy-to-use financial suite supports multiple companies, currencies, and banks for integration with our manufacturing and distribution components. It also includes a fully functional financial statement generator that can be used worldwide. Supporting multiple plants and warehouses, the CyFrame financial solution automatically generates informative reports when a product is created and tracks estimated standard costs versus actual production costs.
