CNC Data Server Increases Productivity & Improves Reliability

Memex Automation Inc. introduces a CNC DATA SERVER connectivity tool built upon its existing staple of connectivity tools that maximizes program usage at the machine.  Save time and increase reliability by loading large files locally (buffering up to 2 Gb) with a graphical interface for “drag and drop” of files between a PC and CNC.

Ax2200HS offers supplemental memory and is the first product to utilize this revolutionary method.  Part programs are managed on your factory floor, files are transferred seamlessly between CNC and PC.   Installation is easy on any control with our many options for Universal Network Interfaces.  Old machines can now perform at today’s standards.
