JETCAM International announced the launch of a new version of its JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) Premium product.
JOC Premium II employs the company's CrossTrack-style interface and builds upon the success of thecompany's 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, the company says. It supports multiple JETCAM Expert systems, and can send CAD files for tooling to one Expert system while sending orders for nesting to another.
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.
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.
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, the company says.
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.
