30 Years of Machine Tool Networking Experience

The Excellerant team has spent the last three decades networking machines across hundreds of manufacturing plants. As the first-to-market pioneers of wireless DNC, we have a proven history of leadership at the forefront of manufacturing technology.

Every shop floor looks different and every machine has its challenges. Over the years, we have developed the hands-on experience required to integrate any mix of machines, new or legacy and synchronize your data into your ERP, MES, or Machine Learning systems.

Let your team focus on their core missions rather than spending time becoming domain experts on CNC connectivity – we have you covered.
