JETCAM to showcase composite automation potential at JEC World

JETCAM, manufacturer and supplier of CADCAM, nesting, and industry 4.0 IoT software, will be exhibiting its latest software solutions in nesting and automation at JEC World, Paris from 25–27 April 2023.

The leading international composites show presents the latest innovations in composite development and manufacture. JETCAM will be exhibiting its exclusive software solutions on the Composites UK pavilion in hall 6, stand S52.

JEC World presents a prime opportunity to experience the array of software that JETCAM provides to composite manufacturers, including nesting, material location/life/consumption tracking, and automation software. JETCAM Expert is a world-class, award-winning nesting and automation software. CrossTrack runs alongside JETCAM Expert and is designed to be fully interactive within Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Manufacturing Execution System (MES), and other shopfloor technologies such as automated freezers or kitting robots for turnkey automation. Its latest option includes Ultra Performance Nesting: a feature which allows for progressive nesting of pattern quantity and material efficiency.

This comes in three forms: Fully Dynamic Nests – Plies are automatically nested to reduce material waste; Fully Progressive Nests – Plies are grouped and separated into kits for easier cutter unloading; Hybrid Progressive Nests – Grouped plies can be spread within a distance from their kit

Using interpenetration part distancing, plies from each kit can be grouped together and kept within a pre-specified threshold, reducing the physical distance once needed to traverse plies for grouping. This provides a balance between nesting efficiency and quicker kitting at the cutter.

The exhibition will host the company’s software functionalities for composite manufacture tracking and traceability. With CrossTrack’s Composite Manufacturing Station (CMS) location tracking, integrated nesting, and cut scheduling are included alongside the ability to trace full material life down to ply level.

An ideal companion to JETCAM Expert for companies looking to only automate the nesting process; JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) will exhibit full automation towards the creation of dynamic and highly optimised nests. At the event, JETCAM will be offering a 60-day free trial of JOC for its existing customers and offering new users the experience of unparalleled automation and third-party system integration for composite manufacturing.

JETCAM will also be offering prospective customers a free nesting benchmark comparison. Companies are invited to bring a USB stick containing their plies, along with a DXF of their best nest. JETCAM will then provide a comparison using its new Ultra Performance Nesting, allowing companies to calculate a real-world return on investment, based on the percentage of composite material saved.

JETCAM is the latest member to join the Composites UK trade association. At JEC World, JETCAM will join the leading UK group in expanding market potential and exhibiting its solutions for composite manufacturing efficiency.

Martin Bailey, general manager of JETCAM, said: “JEC World has always been an important event for us to showcase our latest software releases, and this year is no exception. Now in our 37th year, JETCAM continues to expand its reach – both geographically and on the shopfloor, with tighter integration with more hardware and software than ever before. Our popular nesting benchmark comparison is an ideal way for companies to visualise the savings they can make in material alone – and that’s even before they see the benefits of automation and integration.”
