  CNC Conversational Programming Software  

Offline Intercon Conversational programming software
Intercon is Centroid's conversational part programming system. Intercon is standard on all Centroid CNC controls. "Offline Intercon" is a second copy of Intercon to run on any Windows 7, 8 or 10 PC away from the machine.
This allows the operator to program parts in comfort of their office or at home. The Intercon USB Key allows you to install on as many PC's as you like.
