Configuration Software and Communication Software
GSK980TDb uses the same configuration software GSKCC and communication software TDComm2, which run in WINDDOWS98 /2000/XP. GSKCC can edit ladders, part programs, parameters, pitch error compensation data and tool compensation data, and complete the upload and download files and data between PC and GSK980TDb. TDComm can bidirectionally transmit part programs, parameters, pitch error compensation data and tool compensation data between PC and CNC.
