Full automation from CAD file to NC code.
JETCAM Orders Controller Premium Automation (JOC Premium Automation) utilises the power of JETCAM Expert's RCP (Remote Control Processing) to effectively turn your nesting system into a 'black box' engine - automatically processing instructions. It includes all of the features of JOC Premium, but completely automates common tasks for users with multiple CNCs.

Change the way you work from interactive to automatic:
Auto import/tooling of CAD files for multiple machines
'Setup and forget' - within JOC Premium Automation's machine setup you can specify various parameters, such as whether a part should be tooled for a given machine, if auto-tooling should be used, etc. Once set these will be automatically applied each time you perform CAD import or nesting.
Auto-nest for different machines, materials & thicknesses
With JOC Premium Automation you can create unlimited worksheets, which can include a mixture of parts to be made out of any material and thickness for manufacture on any machine. Clicking Send to JETCAM will cycle through all of your order, keeping you updated of progress on-screen.
Tight integration with MRP
Whether you need to get data in or out, it's easy with JOC Premium Automation. For component creation you can import a CSV detailing your CAD files, required quantities and machine to nest for. You can also import order lists directly into your worksheets, and export completed nest information, including costings, meaning that as soon as orders are generated from your MRP system you can have ready-to-us NC code in minutes.
Option for scheduling/line management
JOC Premium Automation offers tight integration into JETCAM's Line Commander, delivering complete cell automation of loading, cutting and unloading. Drag and drop nests into the schedule list and see real-time status of jobs being cut based on tight integration to the PLC. (Please contact us for details of supported hardware).
J.A.N.O.S. and Progressive Nesting
(JOC Automation Nest Optimisation System). Cycle through various settings across multiple sheet sizes to calculate the most efficient size for your nests using JETCAM's own material stock, a separate list of sizes or dynamically test sizes in increments between any minimum or maximum size. Progressive nesting allows you to group items on the nest by assembly, order ID or custom data, striking a compromise between nesting efficiency and unloading speed.
JOC Premium Automation continues on the ethos of JETCAM Expert - as interactive or as automatic as you need to be. Need to edit a component before nesting? No problem - just right click and select Open in JETCAM. Want to automatically import CAD files but have more control over your nests? Key stages prompt the user of the RCP settings in use and offer the ability to override them where appropriate.
By adding JOC Premium Automation to your production facility you can continue to de-skill and de-mystify the process of programming your CNC machines.
