JETCAM Launches New Premium Version of Orders Controller at JEC Composite Show 2013, Paris
JETCAM International today announced the launch of a new version of its popular JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) Premium product at the JEC Composites trade fair in Paris from 12th to 14th March.
JOC Premium II, which can be seen at stand U94, employs the company’s CrossTrack-style interface and builds upon the success of the JOC Lite II, released late 2012. The product provides a quick way to remotely build unlimited worksheets of components for nesting, either manually or automatically. It supports multiple JETCAM Expert systems, so can send CAD files for tooling to one Expert system while sending orders for nesting to another.
JOC Premium II has been completely re-written from the ground up and takes full advantage of today’s powerful PCs and operating systems. The new CAD import interface not only provides background processing, but also supports CSV import. This allows MRP systems to automatically send lists of CAD files with full part programming information (PPI) for importing to JETCAM Expert system(s). Native component files are then created and tooled for any given machine automatically and within seconds. JOC Premium II works with all native CAD files supported by JETCAM Expert, including DXF, DWG, IGES, SolidEdge, SolidWorks and AutoPOL formats.
A number of new functions have been added to increase the product’s capabilities. Users can select one or more components and immediately see which nests contain these components. Component graphic views are available on all relevant screens, with mouse panning and zooming. Parts can be easily identified on the graphic representation of the nest by simply clicking on the part number in the list. Cost estimation is displayed against each nest, taking into account factors such as material/scrap cost, machine/operator hourly rates and setup/unloading times. Right clicking on a nest allows for exporting of nest data to CSV for importing back to MRP. A comprehensive nest report in PDF format can also be instantly generated.
Complex assemblies can be constructed with unlimited subassemblies. Users can drag and drop files or folders into their assembly tree, or even create assemblies automatically using the component folder structure on the user’s hard disc. Revision control for subassemblies is also covered, ensuring that the correct revision of a part is always used. Once created, assemblies or individual parts can be ordered by right clicking or dragging/dropping onto a worksheet.
Customers with large numbers of parts or orders are well catered for. At the top of each page are search, filtering and grouping options, allowing information to be quickly narrowed or grouped to the user’s requirements. This includes grouping by order, material, thickness or machine. Aspects of user interface are customisable, and the pullout side menu allows you to ensure that only essential information is displayed in the main window but that all other information is never far away.
Users of JETCAM Expert’s parametric programming modules also benefit from built in interactive and automatic parametric program file editors and the ability to automatically and easily create automatic parametric programs.
The software ships with over 30 tutorial videos that walk the user through all major features of the software, with most users being able to competently use the system in under an hour.
Martin Bailey, General Manager commented; “JOC Premium II is a considerable step forward for customers looking for an automated and streamlined interface to remotely control component ordering and nesting across one or more JETCAM Expert nesting system. With the new automatic CAD import features, nest costing, parametrics support, part identification, revision control and nest data export, JOC Premium II covers a much wider role than ever before.”
JOC Premium II runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 in both 32 and 64 bit versions. It works with all JETCAM Expert Premium systems with the nesting interface module. Existing users with a current maintenance contract will receive the updated version at no additional cost.
