Do you have new sheet metal equipment in your shop and want to understand how to make it interface with your Fabrication CAMduct software? In this session, Southland Industries representatives will overview how to tackle this problem. From understanding which post processors to use, how to setup communications, configuring Fabrication CAMduct, and even modifications to controls like Hypertherm and Burny. Arm yourself with all the information you’ll need to help your IT guys who don’t typically understand this aspect of IT. Be prepared to effectively argue against the machine technician who claims it’s your software when their machine doesn’t work as you think it should. All the information you’ve wanted that’s not taught by anybody else anywhere else will be discussed in this session.

Key Learnings

  • CNC G-Code 101
  • How to determine/troubleshoot post processors (DPL/VPL)
  • Machine configuration inside CAMduct
  • Machine configuration on the control including communications
