  • Languages: German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Czech, Polish, Russian, Swedish. More on request.


Data in/output of workpiece program files

Workpiece program files can include several main and subprograms and further corresponding tool data. Moreover, workpiece data, R-parameter and zero offsets can be exported and imported.

Contour processor with graphic simulation

The contours the workpieces should have after the machining process are illustrated by graphics in the programming process.

Manual Guide Editor

In order to ease the operation and the programming the control is equipped with an editor with helping cycles and pictures.

Preliminary block run

Already finalized NC codes can be skipped.

Intermediate memory storage

Data that are stored in the intermediate memory storage can be renewed in the programming process.

Dry run

In the run-up to the machining process collisions and programming mistakes can be avoided and corrected by using the dry run.

Automatic measuring of position offsets

When scratching the measured workpiece the position offsets will be taken over.

Automatic measuring of tools

When scratching the reference workpiece the workpieces offsets will be taken over.


Alarms, signals, versions and customer information are displayed by the diagnostics.

Cylinder- and face side milling

Using a 4th or 4th/5th axis, milling and boring operations can be programmed as cylinder and face side operation on the workpiece.

Control software for all EMCO Concept machines



Win3D-View is a 3D simulation for turning and milling and is available as an option in addition to the WinNC Control.

Graphic simulations of CNC controls are designed especially for industrial experience.

Win3D-View displays exceed industry standards.

Tools, blanks, clamping devices, and work processes are highly realistic.

The system checks the programmed travel of the tool to prevent collision with clamping devices and blanks.

If there is a conflict, a warning is given so that manufacturing processes can be understood and controlled from the very beginning.

That's the aim of Win3D-View: Visualizing, supporting and avoiding costly collisions.


“Easy2control” adds a range of attractive applications to the successful interchangeable control system used in EMCO training machines.

Suitable for use in machines and simulation workplaces alike, it displays additional control elements directly on the screen and, when used together with a touchscreen monitor, provides the ideal input interface.

With support for a wide range of keyboard variants, customer-specific screen layouts and tailored solutions for individual customers, Easy2control represents a promising and highly flexible extension to the modular EMCO training concept.

The interchangeable controls are represented using an on-screen keyboard, which makes switching between different control systems even easier and quicker.


Portable Machine Operating panel to operate the machine via hardware, includes axis buttons, feed override switch, mode switch etc. together with EMCO Easy2control.

Concept machines

Whether for small businesses or for professional CNC training the Concept machines can be applied flexibly. With its modular concept the machine series can be used in a productional CIM network as well as for training purposes equipped with training softwares and coursewares. 

For more information about the Concept machines click "machines" in the main menu.


The DNC-Interface (Distributed Numerical Control) allowes a remote control of the control software (WinNC) via a software-protocol.

The DNC interface creates a connection between a superordinate computer (production master computer, FMS-computer, DNC-host computer etc.) and the control computer of an NC machine. After activation of the DNC operation the DNC computer (Master) takes over the control of the NC machine (Client). The entire production control is completely assumed by the DNC computer. The automation devices such as doors, clamping chuck (collet), sleeve, coolant etc. can be controlled by the DNC computer. The actual status of the NC machine is displayed on the DNC computer.

Das Robotik-Interface wird für den Anschluss der Concept-Maschinen an den FMS-/CIM-Betrieb benötigt.

CAMConcept is innovative software for complete CAD/CAM and CNC training, from design to manufacture.

CAMConcept incorporates both the functions of a professional CAD/CAM system and the advantages of a special training program for machining technology.

All core CAD program functions are available.

Graphic displays of CNC cycles allow quick programming, while simulations and collision checks ensure that control programming is safe.

The 3D simulations make it perfect for training at programming stations, and also for making complex turning and milling workpieces simple to produce any time.

With its many functions, user-friendly operation and clear structure, CAMConcept is one of the leading software systems in the field of training.

Basic keyboard

An external keyboard supports practical programming on an external programmer work place.

Control specific keyboard - key module

In addition to the interchangeable control all Concept machines can be equipped with, there's the possibility to get the control specific keyboard. By using the control keyboard (accessory with interchangeable key modules for the respective control type) the operation becomes easier and has a higher didactic value by its similarity to the original control.
