shop floor automations newsletter - october 2011 The following is an archived copy of the Shop Floor Automations Newsletter – October 2011.

As the end of the year approaches, we would like to share our excitement for 2012. Shop Floor Automations has added new solutions to our product line to improve automation and productivity on your shop floor.

* CNC Editors *
Tired of manually editing G-code on your CNC? The Predator CNC Editor is the most popular 32-bit CNC code editor on the market. It includes hundreds of features to improve the day to day productivity of CNC machine tools, yet is extremely easy to use. Four editions are available including a free version.  Features include:
  • CNC Editing
  • Unlimited File Size
  • File Compare
  • CNC Communications with drip feed
  • Backplotting

* Network Serial Hardware *

Designed for manufacturers with multiple buildings and existing Ethernet infrastructure. The hardware eliminates PCI cards plugged into computers and directly links to the network backbone. You can network up to 256 machines to your Windows based PC. The hardware supports transfers of your CNC programs, offsets and parameters.
This solution supports a wide range of CNC protocols for drip feeding, downloading, and uploading via RS232. Models are available in a 1, 2, 4, 8, or 16 port configuration and include a 5 year warranty from Shop Floor Automations.
