Standard Ethernet connections with FTP or NFSThe speed and reliablity of CIMCO NFS has been proven in thousands of shops under the name “Heidenhain NFS”.
Modern CNC Machine Tools are often equipped with a standard Ethernet connection. The speed, flexibility, and inherent transmission error correction of an Ethernet connection make it the transmission solution of choice for many companies, especially when combined with dedicated FTP or NFS Server Software.
Most implementations are configured so that all NC programs for a specific CNC Machine Tool are located in a certain folder on the PC. On the CNC control, when requesting a program from the PC, all the NC programs are listed and can be selected by the operator. An NC program is transferred from the PC to the CNC control in seconds rather than minutes.
Deckel Dialog 112, Millplus, Heidenhain, and other CNC controls use either FTP or NFS for standard Ethernet networking connection.
