JETCAM releases new versions of Expert and Orders Controller

New features include macro recording and static nest ordering

JETCAM International s.a.r.l. today announced the launch of new versions of JETCAM Expert and JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC), containing various new features and enhancements.

JETCAM Expert v20.31.00 benefits from several global interface enhancements including a new Screen Macro Recording feature that allows users to assign menu options or keyboard shortcuts to strings of commands, drastically reducing the time to perform common functions. Unlimited UNDO/REDO allows the user to step back through multiple actions if required. Logic improvements across the board in areas such as fly cutting and common cutting can further reduce CNC machine runtime.

JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) 3.37 now includes enhanced static nest ordering*, allowing users to select one or more nests in the nests screen and see if they can be used to fulfil parts in the orders list. Users can then modify the number of runs of each nest in order to see the optimum number required to fulfil the orders list. JOC can also create image thumbnails of components during CAD import. These can then be used by third-party systems such as MRP to show an image against a component. To aid customers where network stability and performance are sub-optimal JOC now makes multiple attempts to read component data, ensuring that temporary network glitches will not impact processes from taking place.

Fill orders using existing nests

JOC 3.37 allows you to select one or more nests and check if they can be used to fill existing order lists

There are also hundreds of other improvements and fixes throughout both applications.

Martin Bailey, General Manager said; “These releases focus on the user experience, with features such as Screen Macro Recording in JETCAM Expert and Static Nest Ordering in JOC both allowing users to perform tasks much quicker than before. We’ve also made significant ‘under the hood’ enhancements to many of our automation technologies, so not only do they take less time to run but they also deliver improvements in CNC machine and material efficiency on the shop floor.”

Videos of new functions are available to view in the JETCAM online video tutorial ‘University’, which is free for all JETCAM customers. Both products are available for immediate download for free for all customers with a current maintenance contract.
