JETCAM releases SolidEdge importer

November 13, 2008 - JETCAM International s.a.r.l. today announced the release of a free plugin for its Expert CADCAM and nesting software to allow users of SolidEdge to directly unfold and import 3D files.

The plugin, available free to all users of v16 of JETCAM with a current maintenance contract, also extends the reach of JETCAM’s automation to SolidEdge users by allowing SolidEdge files to be automatically processed using features such as Single Component Automatic Processing (SCAP) or Remote Control Processing (RCP).

Companies using SCAP can set JETCAM to ‘listen’ for files to arrive into a predetermined folder. When files arrive they can be automatically imported, tooling or profiling applied (depending on whether the part is to be punched or profiled) and a nest of each part can be created, with NC code being produced automatically. RCP takes this further by allowing tight integration into legacy data systems such as MRP. JETCAM’s order list can be externally populated. Once done, JETCAM can automatically unfold and import the CAD file and construct highly efficient dissimilar part nests – all without any user intervention.

Mike Weber, Managing Director for JETCAM International s.a.r.l. commented; “We are continuing our philosophy of automation, so extending to systems such as SolidEdge is a natural progression. Any stage of production that requires manual intervention creates an overhead, and with current market conditions anything that can streamline that process will deliver savings. The fact that this is available free to all V16 customers under maintenance is further justification to our commitment of demonstrable return on investment.”
