JETCAM Plans to Expand Composites-Focused Reseller Network for its CrossTrack Composite Management Suite

02 July 2013

The move is in direct response to increased global interest from companies manufacturing with composite materials in CrossTrack’s real-time, end-to-end tracking of materials, material life, plies, kits, orders and nests.

CrossTrack is an SQL-based composite-manufacturing suite used by various companies, such as Bombardier Aerospace. It works in conjunction with JETCAM’s high-performance nesting software to provide complete automation and traceability. As soon as materials are delivered they are added to CrossTrack, where staff can then immediately see the status, location and life of any given roll.

JETCAM says CrossTrack intelligently recommends the best material to use based on life, condition and nesting efficiency. Staff can queue orders for automatic nesting and operators can then queue the resulting nests for cutting on the shop-floor. After cutting, the plies are compiled into kits ready for lay-up, and CrossTrack maintains complete traceability back to the original material roll(s).

Martin Bailey, General Manager, said, “In order to meet anticipated growth we are actively seeking companies with experience in industries such as aerospace, wind energy, marine and medical that work with composites and demonstrate a passion for delivering excellence at the highest level. These companies will ideally already have experience in composite manufacturing and an understanding of software automation on the shop-floor. This is an exciting opportunity for companies looking to expand their product portfolio with a system that provides a demonstrable and fast return on investment.”
