Conversational C Axis Polar Interpolation for Live Tool [New Feature in KipwareT® ]

August 12, 2019 – New release

Kentech Inc. is pleased to announce the release of Version 20.2.1 of KipwareT® along with Version 12.0.0 of the Kipware® SketchPad.

These two new versions have enhanced C axis polar interpolation features for live tool turning centers. Although Y axis turning centers are the newer version of CNC lathes that include live tool milling, our clients have told us that they are still purchasing older live tool centers that have C axis milling capabilities and no Y axis features.

As a result of these numerous requests for conversational C axis milling features … we have added new capabilities to both KipwareT® and the Kipware® SketchPad.

The following video example illustrates some of the new features and capabilities.

These new features create G code compatible with Haas … Fanuc … Okuma … and all “fanuc compatible” controls straight out of the box. No “post processor” or anything additional is required … as is the case with all Kipware® conversational output. Complete user configurable settings … and the ability to select DIAMETER or RADIUS programming … insure that users can further configure M codes and other machine specific functions for their specific machine and control.

We invite you to visit www.KentechInc.com for more or contact Sales@KentechInc.com to arrange a live, online demonstration to see the complete range of Kipware® conversational features.
