Modern DNC paves the path to Industry 4.0
Distributed numerical control (DNC) software and hardware has been available commercially for decades now. Even small job shops and contract manufacturers have found DNC software to be an essential tool for day-to-day operations and a great way to improve shop floor productivity.
The problem, though, is that most DNC solutions haven’t been updated in decades either. Many shops are running outdated servers and hardware in order to host legacy DNC software—a cornerstone utility that needs to be 100% reliable.
Thankfully, modern DNC solutions are available with rich new feature sets and interfaces that are easy to learn and install. The best of these solutions can even communicate with your other Industry 4.0 and software solutions, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), manufacturing execution system (MES) and machine-learning platforms.
In this webinar, Excellerant’s senior software architect will breakdown the advancements found in modern DNC solutions. He will also share some tips to ensure your next DNC is ready for Industry 4.0 and shop-wide CNC machine monitoring solutions.
