Cnckad is the only system that integrates CAD/CAM Capabilities in the same module. Geometry, dimensions and technology (punching/cutting) are completely associative; when you modify geometry, Cnckad automatically updates the dimensions and punching or cutting definitions.
Cnckad, with a modular and responsive ribbon interface, features these advanced technologies:
imporitng file types including DXF and DWG
Using Cnckad's extensive and powerful CAD commands, quickly and easily design components, or edit imported projects from customer systems
Cnckad has a powerful,easy to use, 2D drafting Module, which provides tools for quickly drawing complex sheet metal parts. Modifications are quick and easy with functions such as stretching, rotation, copy and many more.
Create new parts or edit imported projects from customer systems using standard exchange files such as DXF, DWG IGES and STEP. Cnckad's drafting module includes sheet metal specific tools and special drafting aids for speedilydrawing complex sheet metal parts, including:
placing arrays of holes/shape
In Addition, 2D drafting lets you:
Precisely position elements by snapping to help lines
Easily place dimensions and text using Windows Fonts
Select parts from the predefined parametric parts library
Save Standard shapes for reuse as sub-parts
During import, Cnckad recognizes layer structures for rapid isolation of the relevant geometry. A checking function cleans up the imported geometry and validates it, automatically correcting contours and readying it for processing.
Cnckad punching creates programs for your punch machine from CAD files and designs.
Cnckad punch turns CAD files into NC code for your punch machine. you can generate efficient programs for your machine with just a few clicks, while optimizing material utilization and machine run time.
Punching in Cnckad includes fully automated processing as well as full manual control over all aspects of processing. For example, Cnckad automatically chooses tools to process your parts, using factors such as preferred tools, minimizing turret rotation or tool changes, micro-joints and, of course, material parameters. You can also modify the proposed tool selection as required.
Common cuts, working in stripes, punching pat-by-part, and other specific ways of processing the sheet are available. Repositions are calculated automatically, whether to avoid clamp dead zones or to process sheets larger than the working range of the machine.
Cnckad Always optimizes the chosen methods to minimize production time, taking machine capabilities and limitations into account. The post-processor then converts these actions into efficient NC programs.
Punch Features include:
-WireJoints and MicroJoints
Cnckad Cutting creates programs for your cutting machine from CAD files and designs
Cnckad cutting turns CAM files into NC code for your cutting machine. in a few clicks you are able to generate efficient programs while optimizing material utilization and machine run-time.
The cutting solution can be influenced by factors such as head, gas, lens, corner treatment, cutting optimization, and MicroJoints. You can modify the proposed parameters and edit the cutting tables as required.
You can easily control common line cutting, cutting part-by-part, cutting order, and any other specific way of processing the sheet.

or by the accounting department. The resulting NC program can be transferred to
the machine via direct connection ( ), the company
network, or pen drive.
Step-by-step, ’s simulation displays the generated NC code, graphically showing the results of each operation.
The simulation module of is a versatile tool for displaying, testing, and editing NC code. You can run simulations of any NC codes, seeing how your machine will process them. You can also edit the , make adjustments and changes, and simulate the results.
· Graphically simulates any NC program
· Allows you to load and simulate legacy programs previously written on the machine
· Lets you edit NC programs and see the result on the processed sheet
· Permits changing tools in your machine turret according to your NC settings
· Automatically checks NC code for errors such as missing parameters, clamp issues, and over-travel
The NC-to-DFT (Tape-to-Shape) feature lets you convert your legacy NC files into processed geometry, thereby avoiding the need to graphically recreate your parts.
NC-to-DFT automatically translates the loaded NC legacy file into a drawing that is displayed on your graphic screen. There you can manipulate it just like any other drawing: transform entities by adding shapes or dimensions. You can also return to the CAM stage and edit existing CAM definitions or add new ones for further punch and cut processing.
supports 2D milling for forming pockets and shaped contours.
supports drilling machines and combination machines with an extra drilling head.
‘s drilling feature supports CNC-driven drilling machines and combination machines with drilling capability. You can precisely configure the drilling tools such as drill, countersink, tap, reamer, spot, and counterbore for your machine.
provides full manual and automatic support for busbar parts.
delivers a full range of features for manual and automatic creation of busbar parts, including
· Designing and editing parts
· Nesting on sheet metal coil
· Creating and simulating NC code
· Import DXF/DWG files or the 3D busbar parts designed in EPLAN directly into
· Nest the part files on a coil directly in
· Automatically produce
tube cutting module offers fast and simple programming for CNC tube cutting
supports creating tube drafts, adding plane cuts or intersections between tubes and between a tube and a plane, creating , them, previewing ready tubes in 3D view, creating NC for your tube cutting machine, and tube processing in 3D.
The CncKad DNC program provides upload and download data transfer with your machine. It supports single file as well as batch loading, and allows for remote batch loading and extraction of files.
