For Immediate Release
23rd October 2013
JETCAM International s.a.r.l. today announced that it would be showcasing a range of new and updated products at this year’s Fabtech International trade fair, held Chicago between 18th and 21st November. Booth S2006 will be hosted by JETCAM’s US distributor NestOne Solutions.
JETCAM’s award-winning flagship nesting product, JETCAM Expert will be previewing a forthcoming release with a completely revamped interface, along with a raft of new features covered under the title of Automatic Sheet Processing. This includes processes such as new internal destruction routines, common punching and much more. New runtime estimation algorithms further improve accuracy for quoting, and bevel support for profiling machines has also been added. A new version of Expert, called Premium Connected Automation (CA) will also be showcased, allowing any system such as an MRP/ERP software to remotely control JETCAM. Functions such as automatically importing CAD files to create tooled components, or automatic nesting for different machines and materials can all be performed remotely and automatically.
JETCAM will also showcase the sheet metal specific version of its CrossTrack manufacturing suite, providing complete visibility of orders/material stock/nests/machine workloads and full traceability, delivering reduction of errors and massive time savings. CrossTrack recently won the Composites UK Trade Association’s coveted ‘Innovation in Manufacture’ award in September 2013, due to demonstrable savings across multiple departments. Paper can be massively reduced or in many cases eliminated. All information is updated in real time across the network, so all staff are working from the same live data. Barcode scanning removes the possibility of error, and the need to enter data across different systems is eradicated. CrossTrack works in conjunction with JETCAM Expert nesting software to provide true dynamic high performance nesting, which alone can often pay for the system within months.
JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) is now available in three versions - JOC Lite, Premium and Premium Automation. All versions provide a simple way of remotely populating JETCAM Expert’s orders list, with JOC Premium providing more advanced functionality such as CAD import, tool identification/reporting, along with part and selective nest costing. JOC Premium Automation provides all of the functionality of JOC Premium but allows JETCAM Expert to be instructed completely automatically.
