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.

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!
