The Usach Open Architecture System© allows for customer specific developments as well as part specific development.

Part specific proprietary software can also be written.

 

Intuitive Programming

The Usach Open Architecture System© takes conversational programming to the next level.  Part programs are icon based and are created by simply dragging and dropping the desired operations into the program box.

The program blocks specified are compiled in an ISO code program and downloaded to the CNC.

 

Advanced Features

The dry run cycle allows the machine operator to walk the machine through a cycle and confirm all grinding and dressing positions.

 

Unlimited Tool Storage

Because the Usach Open Architecture System© runs on a powerful desktop PC with large hard drive capacity, tool storage is virtually limitless.
