CNC Offset Manager Soft-
ware-Mitsubishi Electric
Mitsubishi Electric offers its CNC Offset Manager software for remote modification of computerized nu- merical control (CNC) tool and work offsets.
“With the push towards automation and central control, machining fa- cilities are searching for more efficient ways to manage their CNC machines,” said a company spokesperson. “This software can introduce increased ef- ficiency in multiple ways: for instance, it allows one operator to manage more machines, speeds up machine set-up and tool wear changes, or adjusts for parts out of tolerance. It also central- izes this work so operators do not need to move between machines or into ro-
bot cells. CNC Offset Manager is thus geared towards production managers and supervisors on factory floors across various industries, as well as towards CNC automation software companies.”
CNC Offset Manager runs on Windows and is networked to the Mitsubishi Electric CNC via Ethernet. It also has a feature that allows other automation software or systems to interface with the CNC to fully auto- mate the offset management process, or make the changes from a central cell-management software. This al- lows software companies to interface their software with Mitsubishi Electric CNC for automation and remote offset management and allows manufacturers with CNC equipment to automate their machine-tending CNC cells and testing
or measuring equipment, or centralize the offset management operation so operators and floor workers can work more efficiently.
