We want to read data from CNC control units with kepware. How can we get a project file or support?
Fanuc, Siemens, Mitsubishi and Mazak.
First, for pre-sales support, please feel free to email Kepware's pre-sales support team at email@example.com.
For CNC integrations using the following CNC controller types, see below for specific feedback per brand:
- Siemens Sinumerik: usually via Sinumerik OPC DA or OPC UA server and the KEPServerEX OPC DA or OPC UA Client driver; see Kepware knowledge base article https://www.kepware.com/en-us/support/knowledge-base/2008/can-kepserverex-communicate-to-a-siemens-sinumerik/
- Mitsubishi: we have a purpose-built driver for particular CNC versions; see the following page for specific model support: https://www.kepware.com/en-us/products/kepserverex/drivers/mitsubishi-cnc-ethernet/
If you don't see your model listed please write into firstname.lastname@example.org and the team and I can do some research.
- Mazak: Mazak CNCs almost always embed an MTConnect Agent and Adapter into the OS running on the CNC. You'll use our MTConnect Client driver to connect: https://www.kepware.com/en-us/products/kepserverex/drivers/mtconnect/
- FANUC CNCs: We have a purpose-built driver for FANUC CNCs:https://www.kepware.com/en-us/products/kepserverex/drivers/fanuc-focas-ethernet/
