A couple of versions ago Valor MSS released a new interface to the Juki IS software. Here we created the best solution for Juki machines through the new ISS XML file that Juki developed. The reason that this solution is the best on the market is because we can use our unique auto-generation capability to create Juki specific part data from existing MSS vShapes, VPL content or by reading all the various NC machine programs or library content we support. This is in addition to the placement data and the link to an existing shape that other solutions provide. The problem in those cases is what happens when you get a new shape that you haven’t seen before? You pull out the data sheet and start entering it manually and then you can’t use that shape anywhere else. With our solution you define it in our environment enabling you to use it in multiple ways.
Now in the latest version of MSS Process Preparation we also provide an interface to read the Juki IS part data and convert it to our neutral vShape library format. This provides a lot more flexibility to retain the investment in part data from one format to another.
Here’s a link to further information on Valor MSS Process Preparation. Please post any comments you have on this capability or anything else in the Valor MSS suite as I would like to hear from you.
