JETCAM International announced the release of version 1.04 of its JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) Premium II. The latest version includes features aimed at both profiling and punching users, and serves as a companion to an existing JETCAM Expert CADCAM system.
JOC Premium II's core functionality is as a remote ordering system, allowing production staff to queue CAD files for automatic component geometry entry and tooling, and to build unlimited worksheets of either components or complex assemblies to be sent to JETCAM Expert for automatic nesting.
Users of JETCAM Expert's interactive and automatic parametric programming modules now have a built-in editor within JOC Premium II. In addition to being able to create and edit standard parametric programs there is an automatic parametric '.DO' file generator, allowing users to use JETCAM's parametric programming to quickly create a whole family of component files from basic parameters.
Users can combine several key features to quickly import CAD files, create tooled component files using JETCAM Expert's Single Component Automatic Processing (SCAP) facility and immediately build nests with resulting detailed part costing. Users can look at the cost of the part on each single nest or parts averaged across multiple nests, taking potential remnants, scrap, machine and operator costs into account. The information can also be exported for analysis or import into legacy data systems.
The updated solution not only allows users to identify which parts or nests contain one or more tools, but also shows a nest tool graph detailing the number of nests that each tool is used on. A slider and zoom controls allow the user to focus on the higher or lower numbers, and data can be quickly exported to CSV for further analysis or importing into legacy data systems, the company says.
