cncKad offers a full range of CAD/CAM capabilities for CNC punch, laser, plasma, flame, water, shear, coil, busbar, and combination machines, including support for sorting and stacking devices attached to your machine. Advanced technology combines design, automatic and manual processing, automatic and manual nesting, efficient NC generation, graphic simulation, and machine communication (DNC).
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
Processed sheet metal parts can be exported directly to MBend for bending.
