Jetcam presents new software at EuroBLECH
Jetcam recently announced the upcoming launch of its three latest flagship products: Jetcam Expert, Jetcam Orders Controller and CrossTrack, which will be showcased at EuroBLECH in Hannover, Germany, October 25-28.
Jetcam Expert v23 improves nesting automation and consists of many new and improved features, as well as additions and improvements to avoid gaps, avoid heat and common chopping. Stamping customers will benefit from a new sheet metal cutting feature that allows the creation of tools to cut off-cuts. Profiling customers will also benefit from the new "Free Corner" performance, which quickly creates laser tools on a contour to free materials with rounded corners and ensure items do not get stuck during routine unloading.
Jetcam Orders Controller automates the CAD import and nesting process, taking information from ERP and mechanically creating tooling parts or assemblies for automatic nesting. A new material translation file allows customers using external software similar to ERP or MES to easily map material variants to those used in Jetcam Expert. Reprogramming components includes new performance that improves their current ability to retool entire inventories of parts for new shipments or even new machines. In addition, the meeting copy/mirror includes new options. Premium and premium automation variants now support Jetcam Expert Lite.
Jetcam's manufacturing suite, CrossTrack, now helps both the sheet metal and composite industries. The Process realization, previously a separate module, is now part of the base system and allows customers to create unlimited operations which can then be assigned to components and assemblies. Coupled with the creation of digital floor machines that can be connected via APIs, this allows planning and two-way communication with any suitable shop floor equipment.
All JETCAM products now support software licenses as well as USB dongles, allowing businesses to benefit from highly efficient cloud computing instead of having to rely on on-premises computing.
Martin Bailey, Core Director of Jetcam International, said: “This is just a small sample of the options introduced and the end result of over 15,000 hours of growth in several expanded groups. While many features and improvements are primarily based on buyer suggestions, all three products include developments that extend our reach and integration on the shop floor and with various techniques such as ERP, MES and machine monitoring. . We will be demonstrating our integration with Schiavi bending cells, as well as working with the Zoomfab machine monitoring system, which will also be exhibited alongside us on the stand.
JETCAM is located in Hall 12, Stand F86 next to Schiavi and Zoomfab.
