  11. In 2014 CONNOVA AG purchased CrossTrack AMS along with JETCAM Expert, which provided material location and usage tracking along with integrated nesting and scheduling. Nests were often 15-20% more efficient than before and much faster to generate. They have full material batch traceability, with data much faster to enter and traceability reports generated in seconds. Integration into a camera-based prototype ply digitising tool allowed users to take images of hand-drawn ply templates that could be turned into cut-ready DXF files, reduced the process of digitising plies from 16 hours per week to just 2. CONNOVA saw a return on investment in under two months. This case study revisits the company three years later, after the subsequent purchase of CrossTrack CMS, which provides full life traceability of rolls, kits and plies. They also upgraded their ply digitising tool and added an Aligned Vision 3D laser system to increase accuracy and speed of the hand layup process.

  12. The material-tracking focussed version of JETCAM's award-winning composite management software is now available on a monthly subscription, is self-installable and provided with a three-month free trial.

    CrossTrack MTL provides end-to-end tracking of both material location and life (expiry) of prepreg materials such as rolls and tapes, as well as delivering traceability of kits from the cutting room, through to layup, the autoclave and beyond. Highly customizable and based on MS SQL Server database platform, it can be integrated into existing data systems such as MRP to allow for easy importing of new materials along with updating MRP with information such as roll usage or kit status, location and life. Alternatively, users can take advantage of the in-built shop floor interface to handle tasks such as booking in and relocating material/kits, with the resulting information available for MRP systems.
