JETCAM showcases concept ply unloading and sorting robot, plus new software at JEC Europe, Paris in March 2014.

January 22, 2014 - JETCAM International s.a.r.l. will be showcasing the latest versions of JETCAM Expert and CrossTrack, along with its concept ply unloading and sorting system at the JEC Composites show, March 11-13th 2014 in Paris at booth P69.

Visitors will be able to see a complete walkthrough of the software/hardware combination - from the tracking of material upon delivery through to physically unloading and stacking plies, ready for lay-up.

CrossTrack, which won the Composite UK Trade Associations ‘Innovation in Manufacture’ award in 2013, tracks materials, material life, plies, kits, orders and nests - all in real time. It is available in versions to suit SMEs and multi-nationals alike, and provides a common interface for all staff managing composite part manufacturing from material delivery to lay-up. The software is already in use by several companies, including Bombardier.

The award-winning JETCAM Expert CADCAM and nesting system provides the nesting engine and NC code output for composite cutting machines. Orders are received from CrossTrack for automatic processing, and associated geometry files are located, profiling information applied, plies are nested and NC code is generated – all without human intervention. This information is passed back to CrossTrack and logged, providing end-to-end traceability of material, plies and finished parts.

JETCAM will also be putting a challenge to visitors by providing a benchmark comparison against their existing nests. Visitors can supply JETCAM with CAD files of parts, along with a DXF of their best nest of those parts and JETCAM will provide a comparison using its High Performance Nesting engine, which usually demonstrates a 5-15% material saving.

Said Martin Bailey, General Manager for JETCAM International s.a.r.l.; “This is the first JEC show where we've demonstrated this software/hardware combination, and we've already seen a lot of excitement from companies looking to automate and track all manufacturing processes from ply to part. CrossTrack has the knowledge to provide full traceability and management of all aspects of the manufacturing process, JETCAM Expert has the ability to nest the plies and then re-nest for unloading/sorting, and the unloader pulls all of this together to automate what is traditionally a very labour intensive process.”
