Drip-Feed Large DNC Files with USB Connect Hardware

The USB Connect series is a USB CNC solution that is designed to eliminate old technology on your CNC machines. In addition, it also increases program storage at the machine and brings new life to them. If you are struggling with floppy disk drives or want to add a USB port to your CNC control, we have the solution you’re looking for. For over years we’ve been helping shops automate and connect their equipment, which in turn, improves overall shop floor efficiency.

At Shop Floor Automations, we know that no two shops are the same. That is why we offer a full suite of connectivity solutions. If you need a rugged, portable option for your CNC machines, we have what you need in our Portable USB Connect solution.
