About Us...

Who We Are...














Since 1986, Kentech Inc. has combined a unique blend of metal cutting, CNC, and machine shop experience with computer programming skills to develop an array of software products for the metalworking environment.


We are machinists not just programmers. After years "in the trenches" we developed Kipware to meet the needs of Real World machining. We get it. We know what the machine shop floor needs.


Using years of experience, Kentech Inc. is known for creating REAL WORLD solutions for machine shops and we have the REAL WORLD experience to back it up.


In addition to our software products, we offer services that put us in the shop every day, programming, setting up machines and training operators and programmers.


We "touch and feel" the newest technology every day and put it into action. That's experience not many other companies can say they use to develop their software products.







Our Business Model...













  • We're Transparent. We don't hide behind forms and email harvesting ... our website offers tons of video content, whitepapers and text outlining all aspects and features of our titles.
  • We believe "an educated consumer is our best customer."
  • Transparent Pricing. You don't have to call for pricing ... or a quote ... All pricing is available in our store.
  • We are INNOVATORS and PIONEERS. We don't just gather information from the Internet and pretend to "make software for machinists". We create software using our experiences to solve REAL WORLD manufacturing issues with innovative designs and concepts.
  • Our G code conversion software is a groundbreaking concept ... our quoting and estimating software was built on the shop floor ... and our innovative conversational CNC programming software has become the GOLD STANDARD for everyday shop floor programming.
  • Live OnLine Demonstrations. Can't find the information you need ... just tell us and we can schedule a one-on-one live, online demonstration where you can see the software in action, ask questions and get answers in real time.
  • Our goal is to meet the software needs of Real World machine shops. We continue to improve and refine our products based on what we as machinists and programmers, know the current needs of the manufacturing market are and will be.
