The JOC product range is an accompaniment to the Jetcam Expert nesting system, allowing remote generation of tooled component files or dynamic nests of ordered components. In addition, Jetcam says that JOC provides features such as part costing, easy data exchange with external systems (such as MRP) and comprehensive nest reporting features.
The latest version adds features to JOC Premium Automation, further de-skilling the CAM and nesting processes through automation, but still equipping the user with override controls to deal with ‘real world’ situations. Newly developed overrides include the ability to disable NC code generation – useful when running nest material comparisons – thus enabling ‘Jet-Cut’ fly cutting support, multi-sheet nesting and automatic double-hit removal.
Component reprogramming is a further newly devised feature that permits entire directories of components to be reprogrammed and re-tooled automatically, which also allows for all existing parts to be reprogrammed when a new CNC machine is purchased.
Other features include support for floating licences, enhancements to DXF CAD file splitting, and the ability for JOC Lite users to easily migrate assembly and order databases when upgrading to higher versions.
Martin Bailey, general manager at Jetcam International, says: “The JOC range continues to add value to the overall Jetcam solution, providing more statistical feedback to staff while streamlining and automating workflow processes.”
