NCGuide FANUC CNC software running on a PC

NCGuide, NCGuide Academic Packages and NCGuidePro are FANUC's CNC software running on a PC. They are available with single or multiseat licences. This is the ideal solution for a dedicated training room or development team.

NCGuide and NCGuide Academic Packages

NCGuide and NCGuide Academic Packages provide a realistic operation and part programming environment at a fraction of the cost of using a production machine tool. This translates into lower training costs. They support both conventional G-code programming, including canned cycles and custom macros, and FANUC's conversational programming, MANUAL GUIDE i.

Comprehension and retention is enhanced as students perform repetitive hands-on exercises in an ergonomically friendly environment - away from the noise of the factory floor. Operators, programmers, and maintenance engineers can all practice common procedures and develop optimized processes without risks to people, tooling or machines.

  • The simulation emulates  the CNC exactly, which means programs can be written, tested and optimized on the PC bringing productivity gains by working offline and keeping the machine in production.
  • Simulators fit to a classroom situation and so both educational and industrial training is easily implemented resulting in better educated and highly motivated staff.

NCGuidePro

NCGuidePro provides a superior software development environment for FANUC CNCs, by adding the PMC ladder and machine signal simulation capabilities, and support for the standard FANUC operator panel.  When combined with other FANUC software development tools, NCGuidePro provides a more efficient development environment that an actual CNC.
