Overview

User Friendly Windows CNC Software

DM brings the desktop to the shop floor with our user friendly PC based Windows CNC software. Anyone with basic computer skills can operate a DM VMC. Our standard Windows 10 software application was developed with the latest Windows tools. In either G-Code or DM-CNC mode, our user friendly software eliminates the need for CAD/CAM training and experience.

At The Machine Programming on 40" 4K Touch Display

Our built in 40" touch display is roughly the size of other conventional operator panels. Essentially we have replaced conventional fixed buttons with touch buttons (similar to smartphones). There are 10 different windows that an operator may want to interact with while using the machine, each of these windows can be docked in any location or floated. Multiple graphics screens can be shown simultaneously for different programs or subroutines. Camera(s) can also be mounted inside of the machine for an on screen video feed. The large screen fills up fast when you have this sort of information at your finger tips. Most operators find the standard mouse and keyboard more useful for programming parts, whereas operations such as jogging or changing tools are quicker on the touchscreen. The combination of the two input methods leads to a very productive machine.

Sit/Stand Operator Panel mounted on a Rotate & Swivel Arm

Our newly redesigned operator panel can be easily adjusted to the optimal height for operator comfort, while sitting or standing. It is also mounted on a rotate and swivel arm, allowing convenient positioning even partially inside the machine enclosure. Our CNC operator panel is the most convenient and ergonomic of any machining center available in today's market.


Easy to Learn CNC Programming with DMTube.com

Our entire training library is online in streaming video format and accessible from the machines help menu or www.dmtube.com. Our videos cover every aspect of programming operating your DM Machining Center. Each of our 50+ detailed training videos is 5-10minutes long. After watching 3 or 4 “beginners” videos you can run the machine, setup tools in the tool changer, and make simple shapes all in the first day. DM-CAM also includes 25+ sample programs which dmtube.com videos refer to. Within 2 weeks or so of full time attention many users will be comfortable running the machine, creating new part programs and making chips.

Machining Center Reporting with DMerp.com

Every DM machining center comes with a DMerp.com account. Here you can view the entire history of your machine and even monitor production with our customized graphs and reporting features. From axis temperatures to auto-cycle run times, and much more.

Always Run the Latest DM-CNC Software Release

DM has never charged for software and firmware updates. We've found that DM and our customers both benefit from running the latest software release version with all features enabled. We don't nickle and dime our customers by charging for unlocking features.

Highly Interactive and Responsive CNC Control

Press the touch display and machine moves instantly. Press go and machine starts running the program instantly. As you write or modify a program in one window, another windows shows the updated tool path instantly.

Internet Support with Remote Diagnostics

All DM Vertical Machining Centers leave our factory with Skype and Logmein installed for quick and easy support. You can contact DM via skype right from your machine and we can login to your machine remotely using industry standard logmein. In a matter of seconds, we can operate every aspect of your machine as if we were right in front of it with you. That's right, no more trying to explain and understand what is on your screen or where to click next... we can do it for you! Technology is amazing, and our Windows based control allows DM customers to benefit from these advances in technology.

Patented Single Processor CNC Controller

DM machining centers use a true Windows PC to run the machine. Our patented single processor "One Brain Animal" handles the user interface, motion coordination, I/O, and motion control. The PC CPU closes real time servo loops. The DM CNC system is a "real time" Windows environment.
