JETCAM International (Monaco) launched a new version of its JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) Premium product for nesting programming at JEC Europe 2013. The software is said to provide a quick way to remotely build unlimited worksheets of components for nesting, either manually or automatically. It supports multiple JETCAM Expert systems and can send CAD files for tooling to one Expert system while sending an order for nesting to another. The software’s new features include the following:
- Users can select one or more components and immediately see which nests contain these components.
- Component graphic views are available on all relevant screens.
- Cost estimation is displayed against each nest, taking into account other factors, such as material and scrap cost; machine and operator hourly rates; and setup and uploading times.
- Complex assemblies can be constructed with unlimited subassemblies.
JOC Premium II runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 in 32- and 64-bit versions.
