For immediate release
16th June 2006
JETCAM International, Monaco. JETCAM International today released a new version of its direct numerical control software, JET-Term in both demonstration and full releases. Now in its 8th version, the new release includes a new reporting engine and powerful nest view/part selection capabilities.
JETTerm DNC allows the transfer of NC output files to CNC machine tools through either serial IO connection, or file transfer if a PC is at the control. The Remote Download facility allows the user at the machine tool to send serial download requests for NC files directly from the control. JETTerm can also handle multiple serial NC downloads simultaneously and displays real-time download status on screen for each machine serial connection.
The new user interface in version 8 provides users with several view types:
JETTerm now utilises the same reporting engine found in JETCAM Orders Controller, thus making custom report interchangeable between both applications. It is compatible with existing JETCAM Expert FMS (nest) report files, allowing users to immediately produce reports for all of their existing nests. A custom report designer program is also available, allowing users to design their own reports, with no limit on the number of report designs that can be created.
Older CNC machines relied on RS232 serial communications to download NC code from PCs or networks. JETTerm is designed to allow simultaneous download or dripfeeding of NC code to one or more CNC machines.
