Embraer, based in Brazil, is one of the world’s largest aircraft manufacturers, employing approximately 19,000 staff worldwide Their original CAM system was purchased in the late 1990’s to drive both their CNC routers and a Lectra conveyor knife cutter. The CAM software company ceased trading, so Embraer set about evaluating several systems.
JETCAM was the most efficient from the 5 systems benchmarked for both composite cutting and sheet metal fabrication
Single CAM system supporting routing and composite cutting
Save 6 hours per day programming time on composite parts due to RCP automation
4% reduction in material on composite cutting
Can now create both dynamic and static nests
Can now perform Mosaic nesting, which was done outside of previous CAM system and saves an hour a day
Received several software updates under maintenance, each with major benefits
