CIMCO Edit provides a comprehensive set of essential editing tools necessary for meeting the demands of modern CNC program editing.
It has no program size limitations and includes CNC code specific options such as line numbering / renumbering, character handling and XYZ range finder. It also features math functions including basic math, rotate, mirror, tool compensation, and translate. CIMCO Edit offers all the functions expected from an editor including drag-and-drop text editing. Best of all CIMCO Edit is completely configurable and is easily adapted to any existing CNC program editing environment.
The NC-Assistant makes editing NC code faster and easier than ever. Point at any M or G code and the NC-Assistant will identify the code allowing you to modify values using an interactive interface linked to the CNC code. Input the desired values for any register and the NC-Assistant updates the CNC code automatically.
The NC-Assistant in CIMCO Edit allows you to quickly insert and edit complex cycles and operations. CIMCO Edit includes built-in cycles and macros for the most common operations such as program start, program stop and tool change. You can also record or create custom cycles and macros for the operations most common to your own specific setups and applications.
The DNC-Max Client is the PC interface of DNC-Max and allows users to manage local or remote file transfers, monitor machine ports, and perform remote network configuration and administration of multiple servers – from a single point.
For mobile devices the DNC-Max Web Client offers a browser based interface for managing DNC-Max – and both PC and Web client can access multiple DNC-Max Servers across a LAN, WAN, or even the Internet.
The DNC-Max Web Client can display the current program transfer progress and state of all your machines. You can send, receive, and preview CNC programs using a built-in file browser showing your files on the DNC-Max Server – just like with our regular DNC-Max PC client. It is even possible to stop transmission of programs, restart ports, and also remove programs from the transmission queue directly from the web interface.
CIMCO Edit features a fast and fully configurable side-by-side file compare, allowing the user to quickly identify CNC program changes (shown at 2:40 in video). The file compare identifies changed and deleted / inserted lines, but ignores trivial format changes like block renumbering and spacing. Differences are displayed one line at a time, all at once or printed side-by-side for offline review.
The advanced remote control features of DNC-Max allow operators to initiate program transfers directly from the CNC control or from a mobile device using the DNC-Max Web Client.
Programs, sub-programs and even entire directories can be requested in one operation directly from the CNC control – and for Ethernet controls it’s further possible to browse files directly on the server.
Any program changed by the operator and sent back to DNC-Max can be automatically raised in version or stored in a quarantine area. This gives you the ability to track changes and revert to any previous version if necessary.
DNC-Max is the complete DNC solution for all your CNC equipment. In addition to standard Fanuc/Haas style controls DNC-Max includes comprehensive support for Heidenhain, Mazak, Fagor, and many others.
DNC-Max works with off-the-shelf, industry standard RS-232 serial communications hardware, including Ethernet and Wireless serial device servers, traditional card based hardware, and existing legacy hardware.
DNC-Max supports 1 up to 4000 simultaneous ports for DNC or drip-feed when combined with industry standard RS-232 communications hardware from companies such as MOXA, Quatech, DIGI, and others.

DNC-Max boasts a professional look and feel. In addition, the layout of dialogs, menus, and toolbars are simplified for ease-of-use and consistent with other professional Windows based software applications.
Remote network configuration and administration of multiple servers from a single point (DNC-Max Client), increases ease of management and installation, and makes it possible to monitor DNC server status from anywhere on the LAN, WAN, or across the Internet.
p style=”text-align: justify;”>The DNC-Max Client allows users to remotely configure ports on-the-fly without having to stop the DNC-Max Server, or even active file transfers on the same port, while making changes. The port configuration will automatically update when communication to the CNC ends. Users may also remotely configure the DNC-Max server, including server re-start, from any networked PC. The DNC-Max Client UI is the most advanced, most flexible client available.
DNC-Max user management can be linked to NC-Base, allowing ‘per port’ user access control.
CIMCO NC-Base User management
Powerful remote request and auto name features allow operators the ability to initiate file transfers directly from their CNC control or with the use of hand held terminals for older or CNCs with limited alpha-numeric keypads or other limitations. The remote request supports DNC restart and file looping, extensive directory support including sub-directory support and directory prioritization, directory filters, and wildcards (Ex. P123*).
The DNC-Max Pocket PC client supports basic transfer and monitoring functions, from any Microsoft Pocket PC (2002/2003) compatible PDA.
License Server Support allows users the flexibility of licensing the exact number of applications needed for your unique system configuration. Supports floating licenses for DNC-Max Client and CIMCO Edit.
Unlike any other DNC system ever created DNC-Max utilizes system variables and settings for rapid installation, configuration, and on-going system maintenance. Make a change in one place and it persists through-out the entire system; from the Server down to the Machine/Port settings. This translates into quicker installations, no-hassle management (ex. changing PCs or data locations), and a lower (TCO) total cost of ownership
Several levels of password protection limiting configuration and control options to key personnel.
Machine settings are stored in reusable text files used universally throughout the DNC-Max system. Add new ports to your DNC system by selecting from a set of predefined/ preconfigured machine templates or create your own.
Multiple send/restart functions give the operator the ability to send from any point in file, specified by line number, block number or tool change – including remotely with remote request.
DNC-Max provides comprehensive real-time logging of DNC system and machine activity, and the ability to send status reports directly to CNC operators
Webmonitoring(tm) allowing users to remotely monitor all DNC server activity from any ‘connected’ PC in the world! Includes complete WAP support for Webmonitoring via browser enabled PDAs, cell phones, and messaging devices such as Blackberry
