Case Study: WLB Metaal

CaptureWLB Metaal , a sheetmetal subcontractor based in  Valkenswaard, Netherlands, has driven their Muratec Wiedeman Vectrum 3000a turret punch press with its originally provided software for 8 years. As business increased a number of problems became significant.  There was no form of automatic nesting and there had been no updates of the software for around 7 years.  Furthermore the creation and amendment of parts was extremely labour intensive and prone to error.

In 2007 WLB decided to replace their CAD and CAM systems and, after researching the marketplace narrowed their selection to two systems, one of which was the JETCAM.

Mark Meuwissen, CNC Programmer, said; “During the comparison process it was clear that JETCAM was more efficient.  It was also easy to use.  The fact that it was in Dutch languate with local language support was also important to us.

A license of JETCAM Expert 1 was supplied and installed in April 2007 by local JETCAM reseller Widenhorn Industriele Automatisering, who also supplied a license of Autopol 3D CAD software to work in conjunction with JETCAM.
