JETCAM to demonstrate new cutting CADCAM features at MACH 2006

JETCAM will be demonstrating the latest version of its Expert CADCAM software for punching, profiling and routing technologies on the Press and Shear booth (number #4742/4842, Hall 4) at MACH 2006, being held at the NEC in Birmingham, UK on 15th to 19th May 2006. The latest version has seen further significant advances in nesting efficiency and ease of use.

JETCAM has invested heavily in the development of its automation, performance and assistance features, and will be demonstrating several new and enhanced capabilities, including:

  • Rectangular high-performance nesting (HP-RAN), available free to existing JETCAM users under maintenance with rectangular nesting, provides even more efficient rectangular nesting capabilities
  • New advanced common line cutting features, reducing machine cycle time and material use
  • Heat avoidance ensures that the optimum cutting path is achieved while avoiding previous cut areas until they have had sufficient time to cool
  • Free-form high performance nesting (FFHPN), yielding significant material savings – many customers have experience 10-15% nest efficiency improvement
  • Remote Control Processing (RCP), allowing external programs (such as MRP) to completely automate the programming and NC code generation process for complete hands-off operation
  • Enhanced help and tutorial system with training videos, available free to all customers

Commented Martin Bailey, Group Marketing Manager; “Automation and the areas that customers will save will form the basis of our presentations at MACH this year. The market requires manufacturers to squeeze every last drop of efficiency out of operators, machine and material. By reducing the programmer’s workload, improving machine runtimes and increasing the nest efficiency we can demonstrate a clear return on investment to our customers. One customer that purchased FFHPN saw that it paid for itself in just over a month while also dramatically reducing machining time through a software update supplied under their maintenance contract. At the show we will demonstrate complete end-to-end automation, with NC programs being automatically generated using JETCAM’s RCP module linked to an external MRP system.”
