Revised: February 2017
In order to ensure time- and labour-saving delivery and installation of our systems, we recommend to make certain arrangements:
1. Where and how is the machine to be placed:
There must be suitable electric power connection with a sufficient number of sockets
The room should be dry
Please make sure that there is enough light
The machine needs a solid table to be put on
There should be enough room for machine and computer
2. The PC
min. 128 MB main memory, CD-drive to instal nccad
A free serial port/interface for communication with the CNC-machine
Laptops without serial port must have an adapter from serial port to USB
Installed Internet-Explorer from Microsoft, min. IE5 ( not Netscape), necessary for the helppages of nccad.
Graphical resolution min. 1024 x 768 Pixel. Fast OpenGL-Graphic board (otherwise no OpenGL-Simulation).
Ordinary 32bit-computer to work directly at the CNC-machine is sufficient for operating and monitoring.
3. Important for big and heavy machines:
Preferably the machine should be placed on ground level, make sure that your doors are wide enough
It might be difficult to carry the machines into the basement, especially when the staircase is narrow and steep.
It is recommended to have a cart, a fork lifter or strong men to help.
The table or rack must be solid enough to carry the heavy machine
