cncKad is the only system that integrates CAD/CAM capabilities in the same module. Geometry, dimensions, and technology (punching/cutting) are completely associative; when you modify the geometry, cncKad automatically updates the dimensions and punching or cutting definitions.
More than 1300 different machine models from over 160 manufacturers have been driven by cncKad to date, and more are added as needed. This powerful solution also ports parts from one technology or machine type to another, such as from punch to laser.
cncKad, with a modular and responsive ribbon interface, features these advanced technologies:
- Importing file types including DXF and DWG
- Part handling
- Material based cutting tables
- Common line cutting
- WireJoint and MicroJoint positioning
- Tool path optimization
- Estimation data
- Tube cutting, simulated in 3D
- Support for laser/ plasma/ punch/ shear/ coil/ busbar/ water/ combination machine types
Using cncKad‘s extensive and powerful CAD commands, quickly and easily design components, or edit imported projects from customer systems.
cncKad punching creates programs for your punch machine from CAD files and designs.
cncKad cutting creates programs for your cutting machine from CAD files and designs.
cncKad creates efficient NC programs, taking machine capabilities and limitations into consideration.
Step-by-step, cncKad’s simulation displays the generated NC code, graphically showing the results of each operation.
cncKad supports 2D milling for forming pockets and shaped contours.
