User-Friendly Plasma Cutting Software For Metal Fabricators

More often than not, custom metal fabricators have a limited time frame to complete a job.  Whether the fabricator is a one-man shop or working in a large manufacturing environment, it’s crucial that their customers get what they paid for in a timely manner.  And, that’s why it’s so important for a CNC plasma cutting system to be equipped with user-friendly software that includes all the necessary features to improve productivity.

EZ Cut CNC plasma cutting systems come with a computer, LCD monitor, mouse, keyboard, and stand.

When purchasing a CNC plasma cutting table from EZ Cut CNC, the first thing you’ll notice is that it comes with a computer, LCD monitor, keyboard, and mouse.  We have found that the majority of operators are familiar with using a Windows-based system and can easily be trained on the software.  Although this desktop PC set-up looks fairly standard, the integrated CNC plasma cutting software adds valuable features that are anything but ordinary.

The EZ Cut CNC software package includes EZ Cut G Code Creator, Job Console, and Motion Mechanic.  G Code is the most common form of numerical control programming, which is used for computer-based engineering and machine automation.  By integrating this standard programming language with EZ Cut CNC’s user-friendly software interface, system operators can easily create a file and cut parts within minutes.

The following functions can be performed in EZ Cut CNC software programs:

EZ Cut G Code Creator

  • Uses a DXF file to add the cutting parameters
  • Allows you to select the material thickness, amperage, the part to cut, and the quantity
  • Set the cutting parameters:
    • Kerf Compensation
    • Lead-in/Lead-outs
    • Voltage
    • Cut speed
    • Cut height, pierce height, pierce delay
    • Automatic Torch Height Control (ATHC) delay
    • Set material plate size, nesting, and material cut-off
    • Save the file as a DNC cut file so that it has dimensions and cutting parameters.  This file is opened in the Job Console.

  • Set various table configurations such as X, XX, Y, and Z axis dimensions

FullSystem_MainLearning to use the EZ Cut CNC software is relatively simple especially if the operator is comfortable using Windows-based programs.  This is helpful during the on-site installation and training, which is included with the purchase of new EZ Cut CNC plasma cutting systems.  And, for the operator’s reference, EZ Cut CNC provides a complete instruction manual that outlines each step of using the software menus.
