For immediate release
14th January 2009
JETCAM International s.a.r.l. today announced that it will be demonstrating a new suite of applications along with new versions of its Expert CADCAM and nesting software at the JEC Show in Paris from 24th to 26th March 2009.
Visitors will be invited to try the new applications first hand, walking them through every step of the manufacturing processes covered.
At the core of the suite is JETCAM Expert, which provides the nesting engine and NC code output for composite cutting machines. Orders are provided by links into existing MRP systems and are automatically processed. Associated geometry files are located, profiling information applied, plies are nested and NC code is generated – all without human intervention. Large spanning parts are catered for using the ‘continue after cut’ facility, which cuts the first part of the ply, moves the material forward using motorised beds (where available) and then continues to cut the remainder of the part. Other features such as common line cutting further reduce material waste and increase the throughput on the machine.
JETCAM will also be putting a challenge to visitors by providing a benchmark comparison against their existing nests. Visitors can supply JETCAM with CAD files of parts, along with a DXF of their best nest of those parts and JETCAM will provide a comparison using its High Performance Nesting engine, which usually demonstrates a 5-15% material saving. Existing customers such as Embraer, Bombardier and many manufacturers for the motorsport industry are already benefiting from the savings that JETCAM delivers.
Martin Bailey, General Manager for JETCAM International s.a.r.l. commented; “We are using JECWorld 2009 as a platform to launch our new application suite as it attracts exactly the right audience. Despite these economically tough times companies are still willing to spend money if the savings can be clearly demonstrated. You cannot get a clearer demonstration of return on investment than a X% reduction in waste off material often costing over €100 per square metre, reduction in labour and improved machine efficiency.”
Full information on the new composite location, life and consumption tracking suite will be released simultaneously at JEC 2009 and on the JETCAM website at www.jetcam.net.
