Jetcam International s.a.r.l.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.”

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • computer-aided design ( CAD)

    computer-aided design ( CAD)

    Product-design functions performed with the help of computers and special software.

  • laser machining

    laser machining

    Intensified, pulsed beams of light generated by lasers—typically carbon dioxide or neodium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG)—that drill, weld, engrave, mark, slit and caseharden. Usually under CNC, often at both high cutting rates (100 linear in./sec.) and high power (5kW or more). Lasers also are used in conjunction with in-process quality-control monitoring systems allowing measuring accuracies of 0.00001".

  • numerical control ( NC)

    numerical control ( NC)

    Any controlled equipment that allows an operator to program its movement by entering a series of coded numbers and symbols. See CNC, computer numerical control; DNC, direct numerical control.
