How can I save money by using ControNest controllers?
Although the Contronest is not a cheap product because of its high-quality hardware and software but as a complete solution it will save on the
wiring: by using premade machine simple cables with much less wires because of using EtherCat Technology.
Install time can be commissioned with less than 30% of conventional time because of the limitation of parts, wires, and cables. Then, after all it will need less time to setup the system
service time: by using such a reliable system, it will definitely reduce the costly visits to customers, or part replacements.
On what machine can the controller be used
The Controller can run any cutting machine (Laser- waterjet ,Plasma ,Oxy) however It would perform the best on Laser and waterjet machines.
