Breaking Down Our Key Features

There are some key differences within Predator DNC. Let’s take a look at each of them:

Remote Request™

Staying at your desk is often more productive. You don’t want wasted trips back and forth between the PC and CNC. That’s what Remote Request is for. All the operators will be able to work with just a click of a button. You operate everything remotely, so you can handle situations as soon as they happen.

Remote Autoname™

is available as part of this, offering a simplified version to upload the NC codes. Autoname is a function that the DNC software can offer so you can save programs and not be limited to the program number for the file name. Autoname is a user-definable item and offers the user numerous naming options.
