CNC Controls

OpenCNC® software is a production-proven, unbundled, software CNC control built on an open architecture that enables manufacturers to integrate off—the—shelf hardware and software technologies to achieve flexible and agile world—class manufacturing. Unlike proprietary CNC controls, OpenCNC requires no proprietary hardware or motion control cards. Combining a soft CNC and soft PLC in a single application, OpenCNC is well suited for new equipment as well as machine control replacements.

General Motion

WinMotion combines soft motion, soft PLC, and HMI in a single, scalable software application that provides single or multi–axis control across a full range of general motion applications including: material handling systems, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, printed circuit board manufacturing equipment, gantries, packaging machines, and test and measurement equipment.

Factory Enterprise

Provides companies with the ability to lower product cost through the use of electronic data collection and analysis. Decreases equipment down time through preventative maintenance based on real time information provided by the control. Allows operators to supplement information regarding the current status of the machine. Provides automatic methods of controlling equipment through user defined procedures.

Control Hardware Solution

With OpenCNC® and WinMotion® open–architecture software preloaded, plus all the necessary hardware, MDSI‘s new packaged control solutions offer the best of both worlds. The new package combines MDSI‘s innovative and industry–leading high–speed software, an industrial hardened PC, a NEMA–rated flat touchscreen monitor, and machine interface into a complete control package. It‘s convenient, user friendly—and it saves you time and money.
