The company will be showcasing the latest versions of Jetcam Expert and CrossTrack, along with its concept ply unloading and sorting system at the JEC Composites show.

Visitors will be able to see a complete walkthrough of the software/hardware combination - from the tracking of material upon delivery through to physically unloading and stacking plies, ready for lay-up.

CrossTrack tracks materials, material life, plies, kits, orders and nests - all in real time. It is available in versions to suit SMEs and multi-nationals alike, and provides a common interface for all staff managing composite part manufacturing from material delivery to lay-up. The software is already in use by several companies, including Bombardier.

The Jetcam Expert CADCAM and nesting system provides the nesting engine and NC code output for composite cutting machines. Orders are received from CrossTrack for automatic processing, and associated geometry files are located, profiling information applied, plies are nested and NC code is generated – all without human intervention. This information is passed back to CrossTrack and logged, providing end-to-end traceability of material, plies and finished parts.

Jetcam will also be putting a challenge to visitors by providing a benchmark comparison against their existing nests. Visitors can supply the company with CAD files of parts, along with a DXF of their best nest of those parts and they will provide a comparison using its High Performance Nesting engine, which usually demonstrates a 5-15% material saving.
