With operations in three countries, SRF provides flexible packaging solutions to a wide gamut of applications ranging from food to non-food, both in fast-moving consumer goods and industrial products. Exporting 178,000 T annually to approximately 70 countries, SRF saw an opportunity to improve machine efficiency, control inventory, and most importantly, reduce trim waste


Working closely with SRF, considering their requirements and necessities, Greycon implemented X-Trim which finds the most efficient trim solution to achieve the best possible results for the company. The software considers trim optimisation, value/cost, knife changes and pattern count.

The project was a huge success for SRF, with employees feeling comfortable using the new trim optimisation solution after the first week of training.


  • Improvements in trim waste savings (approx. 0.5%) and number of setups (approx. 10%).
  • Capability to handle multi-stage optimisation – primary film lines, primary slitters, metallisers and secondary letters.
  • Superior and intuitive user interface making user adoption easier.
  • Open integration capability enabling the SRF IT team to implement the interfaces with Oracle EBS (ERP system) with minimal effort.

I am very pleased with our choice of X-Trim and Greycon as a partner. Greycon’s team has shown consistent commitment at all stages, including making some adaptation to the solution reports for our shopfloor instructions needs. The planning teams at each site mentioned they are very excited and comfortable using X-Trim after the first week of training. It is an extremely fast tool which simulates different scenarios.
