Modern CNC Machine Tools are often equipped with a standard Ethernet connection. The speed, flexibility, and inherent transmission error correction of an Ethernet connection make it the transmission solution of choice for many companies, especially when combined with dedicated FTP or NFS Server Software.
CIMCO NFS and CIMCO FTP provides robust and secure NC program transmission over NFS or FTP. The speed and reliablity of CIMCO NFS Server has been proven in thousands of shops under the name ‘Heidenhain NFS’. CIMCO NFS has since 1999 been offered as an option with all network enabled controls sold worldwide by Heidenhain.
