Thermwood Cut Ready - The First CNC That Doesnt Need a Programmer! 

by Flecknoe 

Cut Ready doesn’t need a programmer because there is already one inside the control. We call him “Artie”.

Despite the cute name, Artie is actually a cutting edge, artificial intelligence engine inside the Cut Ready control. You tell him what you want and he creates a program to make it. 

Artie has actually been hiding out behind the scenes in the Cut Ready control this whole time, but he has never made an appearance until now. He is the first A.I. dedicated to making your manufacturing life easier to handle.  While he is a CNC programmer and designer at heart, he also watches over your shoulder to make sure everything goes smoothly and efficiently. 

You tell him what you want and he creates a program to make it. Whether it is cabinets, doors, moldings or furniture, Artie will program it for you! 

These are not pre-programmed libraries. No part programs exist in the control until Artie creates them.  He is already capable of programming tens of millions of unique products and is constantly learning how to make and do more and more new things. Artie is easy enough that virtually anyone can work with him with little or no training. For more on Artie, click here.

Cut Ready is currently available on two machines from Thermwood:

The Cut Center - requires neither a CNC programmer nor a trained machine operator. Artie moves beyond just programming to guide the operator through the entire production process real time. It is complete, fully contained with all the ancillary equipment smoothly integrated into a package that almost runs itself.  Pretty much anyone can run a Cut Center.

The Cut Ready 43 - is a lower priced machine that doesn’t need a CNC programmer but does require a trained and somewhat skilled machine operator.  With the Cut Ready 43 system, Artie offers help during the production process but not quite to the extent that it does with a Cut Center.
