Modern CNC Machine Tools are often equipped with a standard Ethernet connection. The speed, flexibility, and inherent transmission error correction of an Ethernet connection make it the transmission solution of choice for many companies, especially when combined with dedicated FTP or NFS Server Software.

CIMCO NFS and CIMCO FTP provides robust and secure NC program transmission over NFS or FTP. The speed and reliablity of CIMCO NFS Server has been proven in thousands of shops under the name ‘Heidenhain NFS’. CIMCO NFS has since 1999 been offered as an option with all network enabled controls sold worldwide by Heidenhain.

Transfer NC Programs
Most implementations are configured so that all NC programs for a specific CNC Machine Tool are located in a certain folder on the PC. On the CNC control, when requesting a program from the PC, all the NC programs are listed and can be selected by the operator. An NC program is transferred from the PC to the CNC control in seconds rather than minutes.

Networking with NFS and CNC Machines
The CIMCO NFS Server enables CNC Machines to access the files in a shared folder – called an export – on a server, using a standard network. When a CNC Machine connects to the NFS Server, it must specify which export to use. If allowed in the user configurable setup, the CNC Machine then accesses the export and reads and/or writes (if allowed – also configurable) files in the exported folder.
