Once your GCode is ready for the machine the Predator software solutions can be used to increase the capabilities of your programmer and the shop floor. After the CAM data is produced you can feel secure with any GCode edits, comparisons, backplotting, and verification from the CNC Editor. From there the DNC solutions can help carry your code directly to the machine.
With on-site services, our Hawk Ridge Systems experts can help set up this communication process and have you up and running with ease. Data collection and machine monitoring are just some of the outputs you can receive with the Predator MDC product, and this data can also be stored and saved within a complete manufacturing PDM solution to keep organization between jobs. Our goal is to enable you to make the transition into virtual machining and bring your products to market faster.
