The cncKad system offers a full range of CAD/CAM capabilities for use with CNC Punch, Laser, Plasma, Flame and Combination
cncKad supports the entire cycle of CNC operations and includes drafting, automatic and interactive processing modes, post
processing, graphic simulation of CNC programs, manual or automatic nesting and downloading and uploading of NC files.
Files can be transferred from Solid Works®, SolidEdge® and autodesk Inventor® using a real-time associative link, and read
directly from AutoCAD® files. cncKad supports a wide range of machines, and has a powerful solution for the quick creation
of NC files and transferring of parts from one technology or machine type to another.
