Cimco’s NC Base is used for the management of part programs and associated production documents. This powerful Cimco software module allows for the connection of part programs with such documents as setup sheets, tool lists, videos, PDF’s, JPEG”s and more. This allows Cimco users to achieve product and quality goals by connecting, through a MYSQL database, all of the necessary documentation for a specific revision/version of a G-Code program.
NC Base is ‘production centric’, designed to be used by people in the programming department andon the shop floor. The tool allows for CNC programmers and other manufacturing professionals to assemble virtual folders containing all of the necessary data used by machinists, programmers, operation’s staff and others who are responsible for finished parts. So why just send programs automatically to the shop floor when you can alsso send setup sheets, tool lists, pictures, videos and other vital information, required for the successful manufacture of a part?
The NC Base Client is the module that allows this information to be either viewed on the shop floor or printed and distributed. CNC programmers can even access and update CNC program information directly from their CNC control or any PC available on the shop floor. NC Base ensures the correct part version with its associated documentation is available at all times through the powerful Cimco Editor.
Version Control is a key component to NC Base. It enables a user to create and store multiple versions of a program and its associated documentation, thereby ensuring the correct G-Code file and docs are available to the shop personnel running the programs.
