Embraer, based in Brazil, is one of the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers, employing approximately 19,000 staff worldwide Their original CAM nesting system was purchased in the late 1990's to drive their CNC routers and a Lectra conveyor knife cutter. The CAM software company ceased trading, so Embraer evaluated several systems.
JETCAM was the most efficient from the 5 systems benchmarked for both composite cutting and sheet metal fabrication.
Single CAM system supporting routing and composite cutting.
Save 6 hours per day programming time on composite parts due to RCP automation.
4% reduction in material on composite cutting.
Can now create both dynamic and static nests.
Can now perform Mosaic nesting, which was done outside of previous CAM system and saves an hour a day.
Received several software updates under maintenance, each with major benefits.
