Estimate how much nesting software can save

JETCAM Expert delivers a demonstrable return on investment in three key areas. Use our free online calculator to estimate how much you could save. Request a free nesting benchmark comparison to get your percentage saving.

Nesting and IoT automation software

CADCAM, Nesting & Industry 4.0 software for composite/sheet metal.

Choose your industry

Composite Manufacturing Software Sheet Metal Manufacturing Software

I’ve simply never had another purchasing decision that was as easy to justify as JETCAM. If we were to compare the payback on any other purchase, such as a new CNC machine or autoclave the payback would be nowhere near two weeks, and no other purchase has had such a positive environmental impact either.

When nesting efficiency is only part of the story

White paper nesting efficiency kit sorting

Balancing material efficiency and kitting speed on the composite shop floor with progressive nesting.

Our latest white paper explores balancing material efficiency against kitting on the shop floor. Many of the savings made by efficient nests can be offset by the time it then takes to unload them for kitting. This white paper explains and demonstrates different nesting strategies that allow you to find the perfect balance of efficiency against time. Read it free online now.

What you'll learn:

  • The economic importance of efficient nesting, and how it can pay for itself in months or even weeks.
  • Static nesting versus Dynamic Nesting - the balance between efficiency and flexibility
  • Progressive nesting - balancing efficiency with operator convenience
  • Hybrid progressive nesting - the best of both world, allowing a sliding scale between efficiency and ease of unloading
  • How different nesting strategies compare, with a real-world example of material consumption per strategy
  • Sharing nesting data with other systems

Pre-preg composite material manufacturing guide

How software can streamline the processes of working with life-based materials

Working with pre-preg composite materials delivers many benefits to the finished product, but this is often offset by challenges during the manufacturing process, making composite parts more expensive than their traditional counterparts. ERP systems often do not accommodate the unique requirements of a composite shop floor, so what are the common problems and what can you do about it?

Making your laser fly

Automation through software

The purchase of a new fiber laser is not an insignificant one. Yet often companies will overlook the relatively inexpensive cost of appropriate CAM and nesting software that could get significantly better performance out of their investment. Martin Bailey, General Manager of JETCAM explains techniques that can squeeze more performance out of your CNC laser.
