KipwareM - Conversational CNC Software

What is Kipware® Conversational?

  • Kentech Inc. has been creating state-of-the-art conversational programming applications for over 25+ years.
  • Kipware® uses simple fill-in-the-blank forms to create powerful G code cycles for standard geometry.
  • For non-standard geometry, users can use the intuitive Kipware® SketchPad to draw toolpaths directly or import DXF files.
  • The Kipware® conversational approach allows novice programmers as well as experts to quickly and easily create G code programs.

Why Buy Kipware®?

  • 95% of everyday CNC programming does not require a CAD/CAM system … CAD/CAM is oftentimes overkill.
  • CAD/CAM is expensive and complex requiring a drawing and drawing experience to create G code.
  • Kipware® is affordable and intuitive and for everyday standard geometry … no drawing or drawing experience is required.
  • Unlike simple G code “wizards”, Kipware® conversational contains powerful cycle creation and editing features along with drawing and DXF importing capability.
  • Kipware® is 100% compatible with Fanuc, Okuma, Mach3, Haas and other “fanuc compatible” controls out of the box … no post processors required.
  • For machines that are not "fanuc compatible" ... the optional KipwareXC® application can be added to auto-convert the standard Kipware output into output compatible for other machines and controls.
Don't be fooled by G code wizards

How Kipware Works

How Does Kipware® Conversational Work?

  • For everyday standard geometry … no drawing is required.
  • Select the desired cycle from the menu and complete the fill-in-the-blank form.
  • Kipware® then automatically creates and adds the cycle to the Program Tree.
  • Repeat the process for each machining operation for the part.
  • Previously created cycles can also be recalled and added to the Tree.
  • For non-standard geometry, toolpaths can be directly drawn in the SketchPad or DXF files can be imported … cycles are then created and added to the Program Tree.
  • G code for standard 3D type shapes ... cones, troughs, tapered pockets and bosses ... can easily be created through our ground-breaking 3D conversational option.
  • Once all the cycles are loaded in the Program Tree the complete G code program is created.
  • The G code program is displayed in the full Kipware® Editor for review or editing if desired.

Kipware® Conversational Features

  • Previously created cycles can be recalled.
  • All cycles can be edited back in the conversational menu .
  • No G code programming experience required to create cycles.
  • Cycles can be copied then altered to easily create new cycles.
  • User defined ramping for all pocket milling cycles.
  • Easily create pocket and helical mill cycles for multiple locations like bolt circles, grid patterns or user defined locations.
  • Integrated toolpath back plotter allows users to view individual cycles or complete programs at any time during or after the programming process.
  • Import DXF files as stock into the back plotter and plot your G code directly over the DXF shape.
  • Integrated machine shop toolbox software gives users access to formulas, calculations, trig functions and more with just a few mouse clicks.
  • KipwareCSF® ... Machining Speed and Feed Wizard for Kipware® conversational ... included standard.
  • 4th Axis Programming Standard : If your machine has a full 4th axis ... operations such as XY Slotting ( straight or twisted ) ... Threading ... Engraving are included STANDARD !!
Kipware Does 4th Axis
  • 3D Conversational Option : G code for standard 3D type shapes ... cones, troughs, tapered pockets and bosses ... can easily be created through our ground-breaking 3D conversational option.
Kipware Does 3d !!
  • CNC Control and Compatibility ... Kipware® is compatible with these machines and controls out-of-the-box ... no "post processor" needed.
    • Basically ALL Fanuc controlled machines ... any Fanuc model ... any machine tool builder.
