The cncKad Software provides an integrated system covering the complete cycle of CNC operations, and includes the following modules:
Drafting – powerful, yet easy to use, 2D Drafting module, with a full set of drafting tools and special sheet-metal drafting aids including: notching, chamfering, filleting, automatic detection and correction of unclosed contours, shape recognition, geometry validation, and utilizing true-type fonts.
Processing – automatic and interactive graphical processing for Punch, Laser, Plasma, Water Jet and Flame technologies including: automatic reposition, clamp-avoidance, stripes, trimming, support for Wilson Wheel family, minimizing tool rotation, and detailed data reports. This module supports also auto-punch, auto-cut, special tools, auto-index, reposition, and common cuts.
AutoNest – Automatic “true-shape” Nesting for optimal material utilization, including: interactivity, grouping, grill, hole-filling, multiple-sheets, automatic DXF to NC solution, and detailed data reports.
Post-Processing – advanced Post-processors generate efficient NC code including: macros, optimized tool path, minimal turret rotation, and support for machine operations such as oiling, vacuum and ram-rate.
Simulation – Graphic Simulation of NC program enables easy editing while viewing the processed sheet. The program is automatically checked for errors, such as: missing parameters, clamp errors, over-travel errors, and more.
The “NC to DFT” option enables importing legacy NC programs and simulating them as well.
DNC – the DNC module supports uploading and downloading of NC files to machine as well as support for batch loading and extracting NC files from the machine controller.
Import and Export – 3D integration with SolidWorks®, Solid Edge®, Autodesk® Inventor® and ProE® through a real-time associative link and reading files directly from AutoCAD®.
Multi-language support – except for English, the software is available in various languages such as: Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portugese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Taiwanese, Thai and Turkish.
cncKad also offers Parametric Programming, advanced processing technologies and support for a wide range of machines.
cncKad is fully compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, as well as with Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2010 Packages.
