Sunrise PC Controller + Software

The Sunrise software was designed to eliminate time-consuming layouts and extra scrap from manual layout errors.

The Sunrise software gives you complete control over all aspects of your machine. From built-in error-sensing technology to manual movement, each aspect of the machine is monitored. Built-in logs, a tool library, DXF/NC1 import, and more are just the beginning.

Add the ability to manually control your workpiece, group files to make a complex program, and auto-fill your pieces to nest the entire material. The choice is yours.

The Sunrise line of CNC Ironworkers and Systems delivers more value per dollar than any other brand today. That value drives performance, efficiency, and, ultimately, profit.

The Sunrise machines offer industry-leading downtime, and around-the-clock technical support, including TeamViewer for remote monitoring.

Choose Wisely. Choose Sunrise.

Semi-Automatic CNC Positioning

The Semi-Automatic CNC positioning tables from Sunrise are plate and angle positioning systems with touch-screen interfaces. They can be factory-installed on dual-cylinder ironworkers or punching machines with a throat depth of 20″ or more. The CNC operation and programming use a pendant-mounted controller, allowing easy programming and robust durability. The operator positions the material against the CNC-controlled X and Y stops and initiates the punch program. Upgrade options include a Windows PC Controller with a 15″ Touch-Screen, WiFi, flash-memory-based Nexcom computer, and a CNC Plate Shear System for enhanced versatility.

Available CNC Table Sizes – Mounted on either an Ironworker or Single-End Punch with 20″ or larger throat depth:

16″ x 40″ | 16″ x 80″ | 16″ x 120″ | 26″ x 40″ | 26″ x 80″ | 26″ x 120″

Positioning Speed (Both Axes): Up to 590″ per Minute Variable Speed

Accuracy: +/- 0.004″ / Foot

Optional Equipment
  • 15″ PC Controller
  • Hydraulic Shear Hold-Downs
  • Hydraulic Stripper
  • Auto Punch Lubrication System
  • Hydraulic Oil Cooler
  • Triple Punch System
  • And more!
