User Configurable G Code Converter / Conversion Software
innovative & groundbreaking
Think New School !!
In an effort to employ the best machine for the job, today’s shop floors are a mix of CNC machine types and CNC controls. With each machine requiring different G code formatting … the inevitable result is “control incompatibility” … a major cause of shop floor bottlenecks and reduced output.
Since 1986 when Raytheon Corporation employed Kentech Inc. to solve their control incompatibility issues … Kentech Inc. has been a leader and pioneer in creating G code conversion software.
Our applications have helped thousands of manufacturers realize SEAMLESS control compatibility … WITH NO RE-POSTING OR RE-PROGRAMMING REQUIRED !!
#1 – Post Processor languages are SOOOO complicated … cryptic … and take a computer programming degree to decipher. They are impossible to edit unless you have computer programming experience … or hire an outside source. YET … 98% of CAD/CAM users need to “tweak” their CAD/CAM output. OR WORSE … they need to buy post proce$$or$ for every machine on their shop floor. Of course, that’s how the CAD/CAM companies want it … they make more money.
#2 – Scenario … you created a program, posted it out for your DMG Mori and ran that production run. New run is needed … but the MORI is not available, you need to run it on the Okuma. No problem … re-post it right? Wrong !! Speeds and Feeds were adjusted … chamfers were tweaked … etc. … you lost all of that when you re-posted. If you just converted the proven G code from one format to another … you lost nothing !!
#3 – Changes to the post processor only works for posted files. Working with the G code files allows for mass changes / updates to new G code … old G code … proven G code that you want to move from one machine to another … etc. … opening up a new world of possibilities beyond post processors. And editing posts just locks you deeper into a CAD/CAM system.
STOP the Post Processor MADNESS !!
BREAK the CHAINS of big CAD/CAM companies & post processors !!
INNOVATIVE ... GROUNDBREAKING
#1 – KipwareXC® has a simple, clean interface and user defined conversions are either selected from menus or entered using plain English phrases. With one KipwareXC® purchase, users can create an unlimited number of conversion PROFILES and handle an unlimited number of machine / control conversions for one low price. And every conversion Profile is set-up using the same interface. KipwareXC® is easy to learn and provides unlimited conversions.
#2 – Users can convert proven-on-the-floor G code or newly posted G code from one machine / control to another. And no experience is needed. Just chose a conversion PROFILE… BROWSE for the file to convert … press CONVERT … DONE. All automatically with no human interference and chance for error. Change or update any conversion PROFILE anytime … anywhere … you’re in control.
#3 – Our users have bought / use one post … and use KipwareXC® or CNC XChange to auto convert that standard G code output into output compatible with other machines and controls. And KipwareXC® is independent of the CAD/CAM system … THEY CAN’T TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOM !! ( cue the Braveheart reference !! ).
Do you often hear … “I really like your machine but I have years of CNC programs for my current machine. Can I run them in your machine?” With KIPWARE G code conversion the answer is YES !! KIPWARE software can auto-convert G code from one CNC control format to another … in seconds … all automatically. Get in touch and we can give you the details.
- Shop floors with multiple CNC controls.
- Machine Tool Sales Professionals confronted with control incompatibility.
- Clients who want to eliminate post processor issues and cost.
- Clients who wish to easily convert proven G code programs from an older machine for use on their new machine.
- Clients who wish to purchase the machine and equipment that they want … that will best fit their needs .. without worrying about control incompatibility.
Includes pre-configured options
for auto converting FADAL G Code to
FANUC G Code that can also be used
in HAAS CNC Mills !!
KipwareXC® includes options for the conversion of FADAL G code to FANUC G code standard. These options allow for the conversion and re-configuration of all FADAL sub-programming … canned cycles … and sooo much more.
If you’ve been programing your FADAL using FADAL Type I programming format … KipwareXC® will auto-convert that Type I format into pure FANUC G code that can be used in FANUC controlled CNC mills as well as HAAS mills.
No re-programming or CAD/CAM re-posting is required. Take your PROVEN FADAL G code and convert it to “fanuc compatible” format … all automatically … in seconds … with KipwareXC®.
