"If you cut glass, we'll cut your costs."

HP3's premiere product is BatchBan, the glass industry's first Batchless Optimization Software for your glass cutting equipment. This means it was designed to cut costs and improve the profitability of anyone who is in the business of cutting glass.

With BatchBan you can:

  • Eliminate production batches
  • Improve glass cutting yields
  • Reduce turnaround time
  • Do on-the-fly remakes
  • Optimize real-time use of equipment
  • Keep downstream operations running seamlessly

Better still, BatchBan can be run on all major equipment manufacturers' glass processing lines, so it can be used throughout the industry, regardless of existing equipment.
