Tool grinding software

We are the developer of specialized software, distributed under the brand name "CutTools", which is intended for the manufacture and sharpening of cutting tools on the CNC sharpening machines. CutTools - a modular system. At present there are 20 separate modules for manufacturing and resharpening of different types of tools that are combined into a single system to customer specification. The proposed software is completely debugged, has been tested and successfully operated at 27 plants in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.
All software modules are implemented for a personal computer running OS WINDOWS, so and directly into the operator-panel in the CNC machine, if it possible. The result of work those moduls is a control program for the CNC machine that is passed into the control system via RS-232 or other standard method. The system "CutTools" operates independently of the machine. It is easily adaptable to any CNC system and kinematics of the machine.

Currently developed postprocessors for the following machines:

All models (and their modifications) semi-automatic grinding, grinding machines manufactured by the JSC "Plant VIZAS" Vitebsk:
