JETCAM to showcase JET-Cut fully automatic fly cutting at BlechExpo
Stuttgart show to see world premiere of advanced automation features
JETCAM today announced that it will be showcasing JET-Cut, its new fully automatic fly-cutting feature for lasers, at BlechExpo, Stuttgart between November 7th and 10th. JET-Cut is part of the v20 release of JETCAM’s Expert nesting and automation software, and can be seen at Hall 1, stand 1209. It includes new, highly efficient path optimisation algorithms and a number of new anti-crash options. In addition, it includes automatic generation of rounded tangential positioning movements which speed up processing and extend machine service life by not forcing the axis to decelerate to a stop when changing direction.
JET-Cut allows complex grids of holes to be laser cut far quicker than traditional methods, without the user having to specify which areas should have the logic applied. Through its artificial intelligence algorithms, JETCAM Expert applies the logic on any suitable geometry, allowing users to import a CAD file, apply profiling information and nest components in seconds – fully automatically. In full remote-control processing mode, the system can be set to listen for instructions from external systems, such as MRP, process them and report back once done, completely de-skilling and automating the process of CNC programming.

Also being launched with Expert v20 is the latest version of JETCAM’s High Performance Nesting module, delivering even greater material efficiency faster than ever before for both single and multi-sheet nesting operations.
In addition, JETCAM will be demonstrating the latest releases of other products across its range. Line Commander provides complete CNC laser line automation, controlling material loading, cutting and unloading directly through the PLC. Optionally, it also delivers Industry 4.0 functionality, with real-time statistics and line status notification locally and through email and/or SMS messaging.
JETCAM Orders Controller benefits from a new optimised layout in the Nests screen, only showing navigation content when required and providing more space for user information, and a new ‘batch nest’ reporting facility, allowing the user to select multiple nests to get a single report that combines and totals relevant information such as parts, costs, etc.. Other new features include tight integration to Line Commander with the option for scheduling nests for production, in-built report display, the ability to select and print multiple nest reports and various performance enhancements.
Said Martin Bailey, General Manager; "The range of releases that we are showcasing represent thousands of man-hours of development, all aimed at simplifying and automating manufacturing processes while providing valuable and instant feedback."
