Since 1986, Kentech Inc. has been a leader, innovator and pioneer in PC based conversational
CNC programming software combining over 25+ years of professional manufacturing experiences with innovative computer programming skills.
Kipware® conversational is the PREMIER conversational CNC
programming software on the market.
If you want the best ... you want Kipware®.
What is Kipware®
Kipware® conversational is a fast, easy and efficient CNC programming system.
Kipware® conversational is designed to create CNC programs without the need for a CAD drawing or other image file ... nor CAD or other drawing experience.
Kipware® uses simple fill-in-the-blank forms to create powerful CNC programs for standard geometry
and includes the intuitive Kipware® SketchPad to draw or import DXF files for non-standard geometry CNC programming.
The Kipware® conversational approach allows novice programmers as well as experts to quickly and easily create G code CNC programs
faster than any CAM program.
Because Kipware® conversational was designed and created by real chipmakers ... powerful real world features like cutter comp and canned cycles are utilized
Who Uses Kipware®
ANYONE who programs a CNC who has had the thought "Geez this CAD/CAM seems really OVERKILL for this job."
CAD/CAM IS NOT and SHOULD NOT be the go to tool for EVERY programming project.
Hobby CNC Programmers ... who want to escape the complex, "only from a drawing world" of CAD/CAM. On a budget? Our LITE version comes with
programming power that is ideal for small shops, hobby users, and even advanced users on a tight budget.
Shop Floor CNC Programmers who know G code but could use a tool that adds efficiency and speed to their programming.
Machine Shop Professionals who are looking to add speed and bring more people into the programming process. Kipware® is a programming
system that gives beginners to novices a REAL WORLD tool to help them quickly and easily create G code programs without the need for a drawing or CAD experience.
CAD/CAM was NEVER designed for everyday CNC programming.
CAD/CAM is oftentimes overkill and can remove good chipmakers from the programming process ... slow down a production environment.
Kipware® was designed by REAL machinists, CNC programmers and computer programmers from the shop floor up ... not just "computer guys".
We incorporated things we wanted as machinists and programmers directly into our design and development.
No complicated and expensive "post processors" are required.. Kipware® conversational outputs Okuma, FANUC and "fanuc compatible" (like HAAS) G
code out of the box ... that takes care of 95% of CNC machine / controls on the market. Basically, if your machine takes standard / normal G code ... it will work with Kipware® conversational.
Kipware® conversational is a great compliment to a CAD/CAM system ... simpler programs can be created by anyone with Kipware® leaving the complex "stuff"
for the CAD/CAM. Get more out of your CAD/CAM system.
Transparent, open pricing with no maintenance agreement ... no need to call for a quote or talk to a salesperson ... just click the

With KipwareM® ... Conversational DOESN'T MEAN SIMPLISTIC
AND none of the above programming requires
CAD or CAD EXPERIENCE when using KipwareM® !! ( Kipware® SketchPad Example utilized DXF import !! )
