Capricorn Composite GmbH, located close to Germany’s famous Nürburgring race track, manufactures prepreg composite parts for the automotive and medical industries, serving clients such as Porsche and Audi. They relied on the nesting software supplied with their GFM CM10 CNC cutter which generated inefficient nests, wasting prepreg material often costing up to €150 per square metre. In addition to delivering inefficient nests, the software was slow and complex to use. Separate CAD software was also used to import or design plies.
After selecting and installing JETCAM Expert and JETCAM Orders Controller the company saw a staggering saving on their first morning of €1500, with the software paying for itself completely in under two weeks.
