Order plies or kits to multiple JETCAM systems for nesting.
JETCAM Orders Controller Premium (JOC Premium) simplifies and automates the creation of orders for single plies or complex kits (assemblies) for composite manufacturers using JETCAM Expert.
JOC Premium Automation offers a powerful way to streamline the process of CAD import and nesting by harnessing JETCAM Expert's RCP functionality to fully automate these processes for multiple machines and materials.
Easily import any supported CAD format (inc. CATIA (XML), SolidEdge, SolidWorks and AutoDesk), with support for PPI data. One click sends all parts to JETCAM for automatic geometry creation and tooling for your selected machine, with multi-profile CAD filtering built in as standard.
Use one license of JOC Premium Automation to control multiple JETCAM Expert licenses. Send CAD files to one system to create geometry files while nesting fully automatically on another.
Ensure that you always use the latest revision of a ply. Easily create complex kit assembly structures, either through drag and drop or one-click using directory structures. CAD import can also create assemblies automatically!
JOC Premium Automation allows you to create unlimited worklists - perhaps for each operator, machine or shift. Drag and drop plies or complex assemblies onto a worklist, or automatically create and populate worklists with CSV import.
Select one or more ply and immediately see which nests any or all plies appear in. Double click the nest in the left pane to automatically open the nest in the nest view, ready to view cost information, open in Explorer, JETCAM or export to CSV.
On the nest screen an overall cost is show to the right of each nest. Selecting multiple nests gives you an overall total, and on the order costs tab you can see the individual and total costs of each ply, even if quantities span multiple nests.
JOC can import an entire DXF nest, split it using user-definable profiles to ignore layers etc Individual entity files can be named based on text within the ply shape, with nests containing dozens or hundreds of plies being split in seconds. More info on DXF splitting.
Quickly check an order list against your existing database of nests to see if you can partially or completely fill a demand. Select nests that contain some or all of the ordered components, include filler parts and modify the number of sheet runs of each nest to immediately see if you need to re-nest or use existing ones.
Select multiple nests and get a comprehensive merged batch report detailing material stock, components and nests, with detailed colour-coded images and information about each nest, allowing you to quickly identify parts.
Complex assemblies with full revision control can easily be created using the drag and drop interface or with one click using the directory structure. JOC Premium Automation reads JETCAM Expert’s material databases and also allows you to store material and scrap costs for costing, which is used to display instant nest costs.
JOC Premium Automation’s strength is in its data exchange capabilities. CAD import supports all file formats that JETCAM Expert supports (including SolidEdge, SolidWorks, CATIA, etc.), and also allows you to import a CSV list containing CAD file paths and additional PPI data. CSV order import is also supported, providing instant creation of unlimited, fully populated order lists, allowing for tight integration to legacy data systems such as MRP. Once nested, JOC Premium Automation’s nest screen provides one-click CSV export of nest data to complete the loop.
You can quickly identify any or all nests that contain one or more components. Parametric programs can be edited, and automatic parametric ‘DO’ files can be easily created. By storing machine, operator and material costs JOC Premium Automationalso provides instant cost per nest.
