Kipware® Shop Floor Programming
CAD/CAM Programming

Not every workpiece needs to be run through a complex, expensive CAD/CAM system ... nor programmed by an experienced "CAD/CAM operator". The ADVANTAGES realized between employing a SHOP FLOOR PROGRAMMING MODEL vs. a CAD/CAM ONLY PROGRAMMING MODEL include increased efficiency and increased profitability whether a home shop, one man shop or a multiple machine, production facility.

The Kipware® Conversational

  • Kipware® CNC software uses simple fill-in-the-blank forms to create powerful G code / CNC programs that include "best programming practice" outputs like canned cycles, cutter compensation and more.

  • The Kipware® conversational CNC software's approach allows novice programmers as well as experts to quickly and easily create G code CNC programs faster than any CAM program ... without the need for a CAM drawing nor CAD/CAM experience.

  • Kipware® CNC programming software's forms speak a machinist's language ... with terms and input fields that make sense because Kipware® was designed by real chipmakers and machinists using over 30+ years of real world shop floor experiences.
  • The Kipware® conversational CNC software user interface and approach to programming is well thought out and simple with no complicated icon system to learn ... meaning you'll spend more time creating programs and cutting chips and less time learning how to use the software.

  • And Kipware® CNC programming software can handle non-standard shape programming through the standard, intuitive Kipware® SketchPad where users can draw or import DXF files to create CNC programs for non-standard shapes.

  • Kipware® conversational CNC software also comes standard with real world programming tools like our backplotter to view your toolpaths, toolbox software that puts everyday formulas at your fingertips and speed and feed wizard that auto-calculates cutting parameters and auto-inputs that data where required.
  • No complicated and expensive "post processors" are required. Kipware® conversational outputs Okuma, FANUC and "fanuc compatible" (like HAAS) G code out of the box ... that takes care of 95% of CNC machine / controls on the market. Basically, if your machine takes standard / normal G code ... it will work with Kipware® conversational. For other machines / controls ... the KipwareXC® option will convert the standard G code output to output required for other machines and controls.
