JETCAM International s.a.r.l. and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation today announced a partnership by signing the Developer Agreement of “LA-Module” with subsidiary company Mitsubishi Electric Mechatronics Software Corporation whereby JETCAM will develop enhanced support for Mitsubishi’s range of CNC laser machines.
JETCAM has already developed integration with Mitsubishi’s LA-Module, allows for easy selection of Mitsubishi cutting condition files.
The LA-Module is made from Mitsubishi’s own ‘LA CAM’ software as an engine of Mitsubishi laser machining know-how, optimising NC data for Mitsubishi CNC lasers and providing extremely accurate runtime estimation.
JETCAM has postprocessors that can either generate NC data and interface with the LA-Module to obtain the machining time estimation, or XML path data which interfaces with the LA-Module to generate NC data and machining time estimation. Both posts can retrieve condition file data and other machine parameter information.
Martin Bailey, General Manager for JETCAM International s.a.r.l. commented; “This partnership allows JETCAM users to benefit from ‘best in class’ technology from CAD file to cut component. Utilising JETCAM’s total automation and coupled with Mitsubishi’s renowned speed and quality, this allows companies to significantly reduce the time to generate NC code whilst ensuring the most accurate runtime estimation information for costing purposes.”
