JUKI and AEGIS Software announce a unique integration of JUKI's new Intelligent Shop Floor Solutions software package (IS) with CircuitCAM Express for fast data preparation and facility-wide programming.
JUKI's IS software package provides managers, supervisors and engineers with the tools required to run the most efficient production possible, and has been seamlessly integrated with AEGIS' CircuitCAM Express, now branded as NPI Plus. This seamless integration provides a full set of CAD importers and Gerber processing with direct library management access to IS for graphical part matching and machine angle verification. Additionally, a feeder setup report for viewing the part as loaded in the feeder.
"The integration of CircuitCam Express NPI Plus into our IS software gives us the ability to provide a complete software and hardware solution for our customers from the prototype process to high- volume production. This is of great benefit to our customers and is a reflection of the strong relationship that Juki has with Aegis." said Juki Marketing Manager, Geron Ryden.
"This unique programmatic bridge between the two software platforms delivers the overall experience and capability customers want. Their usage experience appears as a singular software system, while, in fact, they are leveraging the core competencies of both JUKI and Aegis. The result is ease of use, rapid data preparation, and all the line optimization and management benefits only the machine manufacturer can effectively provide," adds AEGIS CEO, Jason Spera.
