Mountain View, CA, USA – Moog Animatics, a division of Moog Inc., has announced the release of its new AniCNC™ application software exclusively for use with the Class 5 SmartMotor™. When coupled with the Class 5 SmartMotor, the AniCNC software solution provides a graphical Human-Machine Interface (HMI), G-code editing and runtime environment and other built-in features to tackle milling, routing, machining, shaping and related projects. An offline mode allows preview and refinement of G-code tool paths without being attached to the SmartMotor™.

Additional features include:
• A simple, intuitive user interface, optimized for touchscreen use
• Advanced Code Writer and Shape Writer for creating complex patterns
• DXF file import to produce scalable G-code for quick resizing and/or arraying
• G-code export to DXF format for efficient use in CAD or illustration software
• G-code editing and runtime environment with real-time viewing of the tool path
• TrueType font to G-code converter allows text scaling/framing
• Built-in functions for point-and-click programming of common metalwork shapes
• Nested-array code building for easy duplication of parts in sheet material
• Dynamic jog and teach to rapidly record points to the G-code program
• In-path jog correction allows temporary move adjustment and then resets and continues

The SmartMotor is a highly programmable servo motor system that is integrated with a motor, an encoder, an amplifier, a controller, RS-232/RS-485 and other optional communications and IOs.
