ANCA has just released USB Wi-Fi dongle for wireless network connectivity. Once your CNC machines are networked you’ll be able to send and receive data from them from a single data management suite you can access from a computer in your production office or anywhere else you have the internet.

There are some obvious benefits of connecting your machines. You’ll improve your visibility and increase production efficiencies. With Industry 4.0, machine connectivity is required for data transfer, collection and analysis. Also in line with our focus on customer experience, ANCA sourced USB Wi-Fi Dongles are available for CPX, FX, MX and TX machines running PMK8 (Windows XP) and PMK9 (Windows 8).
