JETCAM Expert v20.31.00 benefits from several global interface enhancements including a new Screen Macro Recording feature that allows users to assign menu options or keyboard shortcuts to strings of commands, drastically reducing the time to perform common functions. Unlimited UNDO/REDO allows the user to step back through multiple actions if required. Logic improvements across the board in areas such as fly cutting and common cutting can further reduce CNC machine runtime.
JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) 3.37 now includes enhanced static nest ordering*, allowing users to select one or more nests in the nests screen and see if they can be used to fulfil parts in the orders list. Users can then modify the number of runs of each nest in order to see the optimum number required to fulfil the orders list. JOC can also create image thumbnails of components during CAD import. These can then be used by third-party systems such as MRP to show an image against a component. To aid customers where network stability and performance are sub-optimal JOC now makes multiple attempts to ready component data, ensuring that temporary network glitches will not impact processes from taking place.
There are also hundreds of other improvements and fixes throughout both applications.
Videos of new functions are available to view in the JETCAM online video tutorial ‘University’, which is free for all JETCAM customers. Both products are available for immediate download for free for all customers with a current maintenance contract.
