More features from Jevero 2021.1

The recent release 2022.1 of Jevero featured several new features aimed at improving communication with cutting tables through export to dedicated files.

In particular, export to L2N files has been made possible, allowing important information to be communicated directly to Lectra’s cutting tables, which are interpreted and transmitted automatically without requiring intermediate steps by the operator.

Lectra is a technology company headquartered in France with 59 subsidiaries worldwide, specializing cutting technologies, as well as CAD software and CAM cutting systems for industries using soft materials such as leather and textiles.

How do they work?

These new functions in Jevero 2022.1 were developed in close collaboration with Lectra, to optimise the cutting process and improve production efficiency, by instructing machines directly from the L2N file invited by the pattern maker, for example by specifying more than one cutting direction for the template in the case of parts with particularly convex cusps and angles. This information allows the machine to set the cut from two different converging directions, thus avoiding making a single cut, risking damaging the entire sheet of fabric, or slowing down the operation by stopping the blade, raising it, rotating it and repositioning it to complete the cut.

Thanks to a dedicated command, in fact, it is now possible to set a starting point and an end point to perform irregular or complex cuts, for example at the meeting point of two curves.

In this way, the correct cutting information is indicated directly by the pattern maker and reported in the L2N file, which once read by Lectra’s nesting and cutting software will automatically provide instructions to the machine.

Another important function developed for Lectra concerns the possibility of setting a specific alignment point for graphic motifs such as patterns and logos.
In this case, the graphic pattern is projected on the individual pieces, allowing it to be positioned in the best way according to the intended cut, thanks to optical recognition.

This information is then exported to the L2N file and transmitted directly to the cutting machine.
