Predator Software Line
I was looking for a solution to our CNC communication and CNC program storage problems. I reviewed many companies and decided to go with the Predator solution. A process that had each machine down for only about 10 to 15 minutes for setup. It has worked flawlessly. It just works.
Our Predator DNC system is running so well, that after over 2 years, I have moved the keyboard and monitor off my desk and into a corner. It requires no maintenance and provides us with a trouble-free system.
I purchased a used Okuma lathe and proceeded to try to get it to communicate with my DNC software to no avail. After 2 years, 15 cables, 12 manuals, 100s of pages of parameter settings, and advice from every expert I could find, I stumbled across Shop Floor Automations. Between their expert advice, cabling, and Predator Software, I was up and running in 20 minutes.
We were trying to control over 8000 programs, revision levels, and updates – the Predator system was recommended to help minimize the man hours and mistakes of doing this manually. We installed Predator DNC and Editor and have had no downtime with full control. CMW currently manages approximately 8000 part programs. The system seems to be indestructible – we have had no problems.
Shop Floor Automations Testimonials
I have been extremely satisfied with Predator Software, with Shop Floor Automations and the technical support. You have been very helpful and always available when questions arise. This is not the case with some technical support teams – it is very frustrating when it takes 3 or 4 days to get a response. I rate your technical support and the Predator Software as excellent.
The Predator Software is working great! I really would like to thank you, and especially Amy, for the great phone support. She answered all my questions, and was extremely polite, as were the guys in the tech department. Once again, thanks, and if we need anything else, we know who we will be calling!
Software Demos & Webinars!
We were looking for a system that would communicate through a wireless network, so we could get rid of the switch box and old wires running all over the machine shop. Predator Software helped us eliminate our old switch box, which we used to communicate for CNC Machines. The software works seamlessly great with wireless access points connected to the machines. The customer support was great. They were very supportive and fixed errors quick when we had a couple of problems.
I want to take the time to thank you for your support in giving me a better understanding of the system and how to use it with the training you have provided. A few months back, I set out to get our MDC system up and running for the data collection purposes. With the barriers I faced, whether it was the license issue, hardware or software settings, you provided swift support to get us going in the right direction. I know I will have more questions in the future, and I feel confident in saying that you guys will help me with that. I have learned a lot over the past few months with the problems we have worked through.
