  • USB Connect Portable – This portable version of the USB Connect Pendant model can be carried around the shop, rather than mounted on and dedicated to one machine. It also helps the operator eliminate the four-hour long installation process.
  • Floppy Drive Emulator – If you are still using floppy disks on the shop floor, this is the solution for you. While it will not increase storage in any way for your machine, it will replace obsolete media on your shop floor and expand the life of your legacy machinery.

A machinist's hand is seen pressing the buttons on a CNC controller. Undearneath and behind the controller is a desk with various CNC tools.

Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort.
