CNC Data Management

Like everything you do in your shop, there is a cost associated with program storage and retrieval.

We see shops with 50 or 100 CNC machines still using a laptop or some sort of antiquated switch-box system with thousands of feet of wiring to communicate with their machines. Let us show you how you can drastically reduce costs and gain much better control over your CNC data management.

Cimco NC-Base 8

Professional CNC Program & Production Document Management

CIMCO NC-Base is a CNC program management tool that allows you to organize and manage your CNC programs and related production documents.

Management of part programs and associated production documents is often a time consuming task for CNC programmers and operators. CIMCO NC-Base takes care of that job and goes one step further. By providing an integrated and highly flexible management, search and editing environment, programmers and operators are guaranteed to work more effectively.

Information Management

Achieving product and quality goals today requires that the correct information and data get to the right individuals and equipment as efficiently as possible. NC-Base is the CNC program management tool that allows you to organize and manage your CNC programs and related production documents most effectively through the use of a reliable and fast SQL relational database.

CIMCO NC-Base is production centric, designed to be used by people in the programming department and on the shop floor. With NC-Base CNC programmers and production staff can assemble virtual folders containing all the necessary data used by machinists, operators, quality staff, and others who are responsible for finished parts.

Why just send CNC programs to the shop floor when you can also provide setup sheets, tool lists, images, and other vital information required to manufacture parts? This information may be accessed from PCs running the NC-Base Client or printed out for manual distribution. Either way, NC-Base helps ensure the right part gets made right every time.

CNC operators can access and update the database directly from the CNC control, or any PC on the shop floor.
