Superdraft has been providing DNC solutions for more than 20 years. DNC-Max v5 is the latest version in a long line of DNC solutions.

The world's #1 DNC software provides end-to-end functionality for robust and reliable DNC communications.

For over a decade DNC-Max has been the standard by which all other DNC applications must be compared. From its best in class client/server architecture to its unmatched configurability and scalability DNC-Max delivers on functionality, reliability and value.

DNC-Max meets or exceeds the functionality and fliexibility of any other DNC apllication on the market. DNC-Max is the obvious choice for any size CNC operation.


  • Supports from 1 up to 4000 simultaneous ports for DNC or drip-feed when combined with industry standard RS232 communication shardware from companies such as MOXA, DIGI, Comtrol etc.
  • Remote network configuration and administration of multiple servers from a single point (DNC-Max CLient), increases ease of management and installation and make sit possible to monitor DNC server status from anywhere on the LAN, WAN or across the internet. The DNC-Max Client allows users to remotely configure ports on-the-fly without having to stop the DNC-Max Server, or even active file transfers on the same port, while making changes. The port configuration will automatically update when communication to the CNC ends. Users may also remotely configure the DNC-Max server, including server re-start, from any networked PC. The DNC-Max Client UI is the most advanced, most fexible client available.
  • Several levels of password protection limiting configuration and control options to key personnel.
  • Powerful remote request and auto name features allow operators teh ability to iniate file transfers directly from their CNC control or with the use of hand held terminals for older CNCs with limited alpha-numeric keypads ot other limitations. The remote request supports DNC restart and file looping, extensive directory support including sub-directory support and directory prioritization, directory filters and wildcards.
  • Multiple send/restart functions give the operator the ability to send from any point in the file, specifiedby line number, block number or tool change - including remotely with remote request.
  • DNC-Max provides comprehensive real-time logging of DNC system and machine activity and the ability to send status reports directly to CNC operators.


  • Parametric system configuration - unlike any other DNC system ever created DNC-Max utilizes system variables and settings for rapid installation, configuration and ongoing maintenance. Make a change in one place and it persists throughout the entire system; from the server down to the Machine/Port settings. This translates into quicker installations, no hassle management (ex. changing PCs or data locations) and a lower total cost of ownership.
  • Machine settings are stored in reuseable text files used universally throughout the DNC-Max system. Add new ports to your DNC system by selecting from a set of predifined/preconfigured machine templates or create your own.
  • Integrated messaging inlcuding E-Mail and ODBC data collection, including links to MS Access, Oracle, MS SQL and MS Excel.
  • Webmonitoring (TM) allowing users to remotely monitor all DNC-Max server activity from any 'connected' PC in the world! Includes complete WAP support for webmonitoring via browser enabled PDAs, mobile phones and messaging devices such as blackberry.
