    Recommend data transfer software for Fanuc Series 21i-TB

    Hi!

    We are using Puma 700 & Puma 400 turning centers with Fanuc Series 21i-TB controls.

    What would be recommend software (from Fanuc) to transfer data from external PC to these controls?

    We are now using WINDPG 1.12 software to transfer data from external PC to control.

    Cool DNC Software

    I recommend CIMNET by Wonderware. At my company we have tried a number of DNC software packages and none have been as low maintenance and flawless as CIMNET DNC.

    File Server Software

    We use CCI Suite Factory. It includes the operating system w/ protocalls for the individual turning and milling centers. Our system is divided between CNC Milling programs using Smartcam. Milling can access and transfer any program to any one of the milling centers. Turning is mostly Mazak using Mazatrol, we can store Native Mazak files and recall the programs for our repeat jobs. Our new Nexus MAchines are always online for file access. The Other turning center is Fanuc using Canned Cycles, Mostly for roughing ops.

    Predator Editor is a simple yet powerful CNC editor with backplotting and RS-232 Send/Receive capabilities. If you need remote "request", Predator DNC and Desktop offer this and simultaneous drip-feed capabilities. http://www.predator-software.com

    NetDNC - DNC software that is easy to use...

    Check out NetDNC from Memex Automation (www.memex.ca). At $275 for a single seat license, you can configure as many machines as you want (like a virtual switch-box) but only transfer with one port at a time. Great on a laptop for service people, or as an enterprise solution for those with dozens of CNCs. A free 40 hour demo means you can try before you buy...

    We use FactorSuite also, but it ain't cheap. I like it, but am not familiar with the other software mentioned. All our lathes and mills are wired for DNC. Probably a more powerful program than you need.

    CIMCO DNC is very flexible. Takes time to understand, but very powerful once you understand it.

    Fanuc don't make or recommend any transfer software. Just use any program, it's not rocket science. There are many free programs out there. If all you want is to transfer programs all transfer softwares have the same result.... a transferred program.

    Re: Recommend data transfer software for Fanuc Series 21i-TB

    I’m using the COMMUNICATION SOFTWARE FOR FANUC CNC , it works very well with all FANUC CNC I have even with old SIEMENS CNC with RS232 connection.
    Now I would like to get rid of cables and use WiFi connection instead.
    This is an old project I have but I do not have experience with wireless connection.
    Has anybody tried to use mentioned software with wireless connection?.
    I downloaded the latest version of COMMUNICATION SOFTWARE FOR FANUC CNC from SOFTPEDIA:
    https://www.softpedia.com/get/System...or-FANUC.shtml

    I would really appreciate your help.
    Regards
    Juan Carlos
