Automatic Programming

The JETCAM Remote-Control Processing (RCP) option provides the ability to drive JETCAM operations in a black-box type manner. RCP is a simple man-readable command language that instructs a JETCAM system what to do with new CAD files, new Orders, and Nesting for any number of machines. Most customers use JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) to drive JETCAM in RCP mode, however, many customers choose to generate RCP command files from 3rd party or custom software applications, effectively running JETCAM completely automatically from another software application. A good example of this is the integration developed by The Aquila Group to drive JETCAM nesting at the shop floor using DMM.

JETCAM Orders Controller (JOC) simplifies the creation of orders for single components or component assemblies stored in the JETCAM Expert CADCAM system. Available in Lite and Premium versions, JOC provides a method of manipulating large numbers of geometry files, orders and assemblies as well as providing information about every aspect of a component or order at the click of a mouse. JOC is used mainly for applications such as composite knife-cutting, sheet metal laser, and other profiling applications that involve high automation.
