CAPPS NC software directly interfaces with the CNC controller. CAPPS-NC uses dimensional metrology data for CMM reports, adaptive work offset, adaptive tool offset and 3-5 axis closed loop manufacturing.

Capps NC Applies automation technology into the factory of the future

CappsNC provides dimensional metrology data to be used in the hyperflexible, self-adapting manufacturing processes.

On-Machine Software Features

Flexible Integration

CAPPS NC integrates a wide variety of CNC machines for your on-machine inspection and smart manufacturing needs. CAPPS NC supports machining centers, mill turn machines, double turret machines, LSAM, additive & hybrid machines, water-jet, laser machines and robotic applications.

On-Machine Scanning & Probing

CappsNC can be used for on-machine probing or on-machine 3D scanning. CappNC supports the following, but not limited, sensor interfaces: all CNC touch probes, scanning contact probes, non-contact laser scanners, and non-contact CCD Cameras.

Real-Time Dynamic Feedback

CAPPSNC real-time dynamic feedback improves machine tool accuracy.

  • Errors due to Part offsets
  • Errors due to Part fixturing
  • Errors due to tool wear
  • Errors due to thermal effects

Advance CMM Reporting

    CAPPSNC provides advance CMM reporting features that include:

  • ISO & ANSI compliant GD & T Analysis
  • Complete CMM Reports
  • Support of Multiple datums with material conditions
  • Form & Profile analysis
  • Automatic report generation
  • Direct report feedback to NC for adaptive machining
  • Export data to all SPC packages including DATA VIEW
  • Auto TEXT and or E-MAIL on out of tolerance features

On-Machine Inspection Process


Easy & Precise Part Setup and machine axis diagnostics CappsNC PreProcess approach allows users to set specific Work and Tool offsets before the machining process.


Adaptive Manufacturing – Program corrections during machining with real-time in-process feedback through on-machine probing.
