JETCAM to exhibit new software at Fabtech

New features automate CAD import and nesting for sheet metal fabricators

JETCAM International s.a.r.l. will use the Fabtech International show in Chicago to exhibit new versions of its core sheet metal software products, at booth no S2279 between November 9th and 12th 2015.

Its flagship nesting software JETCAM Expert recently underwent a transformation with an entirely new interface in v18, along with several major new punching features including ASP (Automatic Sheet Processing). The latest v18 release builds on this with dozens of enhancements across the CAD, CAM and nesting sections, new turret management capabilities as well improvements to several popular postprocessors.

The new user interface draws much of its styling from JETCAM’s CrossTrack product, and focuses on reducing the mouse movements a user has to perform during day-to-day operations. All file management and tabular data views have been improved with new controls, and general performance enhancements have been made throughout the interface.

Attendees are invited to bring CAD files with them to submit for a free nest comparison benchmark, with v18’s new high performance nesting. Companies often see savings of over 10% which, when cutting expensive material such as titanium, can generate a return on investment of months or even weeks.

The Premium versions of JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) also include several new features. Starting with CAD, a new DXF nest splitter allows users to automatically split a DXF file containing multiple parts. Multiple configuration profiles can be created, providing the user with parameters such as tolerance, whether to keep text or to use found text as the name for the resulting DXF files. With one click a DXF nest can then be split into separate files, ready for CAD import. Similarly, JETCAM Expert’s CAD filtering now also allows multiple configuration profiles to be configured through JOC, ensuring that the selected profile settings are applied automatically on a per-file basis, fixing any issues during the CAD import process. Other additions include improvements to part/nest costing and a new reports designer.

JETCAM will also be demonstrating the recently launched Cut Scheduler – a low cost and capable job scheduling application. Running in either standalone mode or as a multi-terminal master/shopfloor mode, it allows drag and drop scheduling of nests and one-click job starting, which downloads NC code to each CNC machine.

The booth will be staffed by NestOne Solutions, JETCAM’s main distributor in the US.
