Cut Ready - The First CNC That Doesn't Need a Programmer!

Artie InsideCut 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. 

Cut Ready with Artie Inside

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:

More Info on the Cut Center with Artie Inside

 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.  

 


More Info on the Cut Ready 43 with Artie Inside

The Cut Ready 43 is equipped with a 5 by 8 table, a 21-position tool changer and a high flow vacuum hold-down system (additional table sizes and options are available).

The Cut Ready 43 is intended to bring the magic of Artie to a lower priced system. It features a full-sized vacuum table and, just like its big brother, doesn’t require a CNC programmer. Just like a Cut Center, it can help you quickly and easily create most products a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer (only operational training is required).

Since this is a CNC router at its core, you are free to program and operate it as a normal CNC router if you want, but the magic of Artie makes the Cut Ready 43 a whole new exciting experience!

We've taken the fear out of automation by combining our easy to use interface and years of experience in the industry to create a powerful tool that will allow you to focus more on your products, business, making money, and worry less about being intimidated by the technical details. It is complete, fully contained with all the ancillary equipment smoothly integrated into a package that almost runs itself.

The Cut Center is the ultimate in next generation CNC.

The 2018 IWF Show (August 22nd-25th) promises to be an exciting opportunity to visit Atlanta and see the very latest technology from Thermwood (booth #6735)! 

Like the all new CUT READY 43 and the award-winning CUT CENTER (both help you quickly and easily create most products a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer) and the heavy-duty MODEL 45 machining solid wood, aluminum and plastic sheet parts.

New CUT READY 43 - With Artie Inside!

Thermwood Cut Ready 43 will be on display at IWF 2018

Thermwood is proud to introduce our all-new CUT READY 43 (shown above equipped with a 5 by 8 table, optional 21-position tool changer and lift vacuum cups and a standard high flow vacuum hold-down system - additional table sizes and options are available). This machine has many of the features of the CUT CENTER, but at a lower price.

Just like a CUT CENTER, it also can help you quickly and easily create most things a cabinet shop would want to make without a CNC programmer, but unlike the CUT CENTER, it does require a trained and somewhat skilled machine operator. 

The CUT READY 43 will be in action at IWF 2018 in booth #6735.

Try out the award-winning CUT CENTER for yourself at IWF 2018!

The CUT CENTER is the ultimate in next generation CNC routers. It doesn't require programming and most people can operate it with little or no training or guidance. It is complete, fully contained with all the ancillary equipment, smoothly integrated into a package that almost runs itself.

Thermwood CUT CENTER at IWF 2016.

Artie guides you through each step of the production process. If there is anything you don’t understand, he will show you a video of what to do. He manages your tooling and keeps track of routine maintenance. He will show you a video of how to clean filters or top off lubrication. He will turn your vacuum pump on or off as needed and will make sure it is holding properly. Should you encounter a problem he will guide you, step by step, through a solution.

Just like the CUT READY 43, you can operate the CUT CENTER as a traditional CNC router.  However, running with Artie represents a whole new way of operating a machine which must be experienced to be completely understood.  It is just so easy!. The CUT CENTER is the ultimate in next generation CNC.

You'll have the opportunity to see just how easy it is to run this powerful machine.  Just tell it what you want, and it makes it...it is that easy! 

We'll be demonstrating live during the show, and you can be part of it by helping to operate the CUT CENTER.  Please visit our booth (#6735) and speak to a Thermwood representative to get your hands on this exciting machine!
