November 7, 2013 - JETCAM International s.a.r.l. today announced that it is showcasing a range of new and updated products at this year’s Advanced Engineering Show, held at The N.E.C., Birmingham between 12th and 13th November on booth D215.
The majority of the booth will be dedicated to a prototype ply unloading and sorting system, which integrates tightly with JETCAM’s CrossTrack and Expert systems. Once plies are nested for cutting a further ‘nest’ of the unloaded positions is then created. CrossTrack and JETCAM Expert know where all of the plies are on the machine cutting table and know the required order and rotation of the plies in the kit - this information is passed to the unloading system for fully automatic unloading and sorting.
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. New runtime estimation algorithms further improve accuracy for quoting, and a new version of Expert, called Premium Connected Automation (CA) will also be showcased, allowing any system such as MRP/ERP software to remotely control JETCAM. Functions such as automatically importing CAD files to create profiled components, or automatic nesting for different machines and materials can all be performed remotely and automatically.
JETCAM will also demonstrate the latest version of its award-winning 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.
