JETCAM International announced the foundation of JETCAM Composite, which will focus on selling its range of nesting and composite material management applications to companies in Europe.
The move, JETCAM says, is in response to increased demand in the sector across aerospace, automotive, marine and wind sectors across the region.

JETCAM says its nesting software delivers savings by continually searching for the optimum nest pattern for plies. CrossTrack provides complete traceability of material, material life, orders, plies, kits and nests, all in real time.
JETCAM Composite's Sales Director, Stefan Dragitsch commented, "The interest in CrossTrack has been phenomenal in the last few months, with several global brands in aerospace, marine, military and medical sectors looking to make the move."
Martin Bailey, General Manager for JETCAM International added, "Over the last decade JETCAM's composite customer base has grown exponentially, with companies such as BAE, GE, GKN and Bombardier all benefiting from JETCAM's nesting and automation knowledge. We see this expansion as an exciting opportunity to help both large and small manufacturers stay ahead of the game through automation and efficiency."
