What is KIPWARE ?

Kipware software was developed using 30+ years of real world manufacturing experiences.

Kentech Inc. was founded and most of the software was originally developed by Kentech Inc. President, Kenney Skonieczny. A third generation machinist, Kenney started as a manual machinist in the ’80’s working up to Class “A” machinist. That was followed up as a CNC service tech then CNC programming and Applications Engineer with Mori Seiki USA. Kenney received direct training in Japan at the factories of many machine tool builders including Mori Seiki, Kuraki and Shizuoka. Professional employment also included stints as a CNC programmer, shop foremen and manager, as well as a Senior Mfg. Engineer at a high volume production facility. Kenney brings over 35+ years of manufacturing and chipmaking experiences to the development of Kipware® software.

KIPWARE® has been developed through a collaboration with Manufacturing Engineers, CNC and CAD/CAM Programmers, CNC Application Engineers and other manufacturing professionals resulting in truly … REAL WORLD software.

Kentech Inc. has grown KIPWARE® into one of the fastest growing brands in machine shops around the world. From conversational CAM to quoting and estimating to innovative and groundbreaking G code conversion software … KIPWARE® is so popular because it is REAL WORLD software … Created BY the Real World … Created FOR the Real World.

Our Mission ... Plain & Simple

To use our various experiences gained over 30+ years in the world of manufacturing and CNC to create software that works in the REAL WORLD. Software that addresses the real world issues we experienced first hand … and that were overlooked or not addressed by companies whose only interest is to create BIG TICKET software with a BIG PRICE TICKET.

To treat every customer the way we would like to be treated … while delivering a great purchase and after-purchase experience that leaves each customer in a better competitive position than when we first met.

Our Business Model Is Different

We believe “an educated consumer is our best customer.”

Transparent Pricing … You don’t have to call for pricing … or a quote … All pricing is available in our store … CLICK HERE

We are INNOVATORS and PIONEERS … We don’t just gather information from the Internet and pretend to “make software for machinists”. We create software using our experiences to solve REAL WORLD manufacturing issues with innovative designs and concepts.

Our G code conversion software is a groundbreaking concept … our quoting and estimating software was built on the shop floor … and our innovative conversational CNC programming software has become the GOLD STANDARD for everyday shop floor programming.

Live OnLine Demonstrations … Can’t find the information you need … just tell us and we can schedule a one-on-one live, online demonstration where you can see the software in action, ask questions and get answers in real time.

Our goal is to meet the software needs of Real World machine shops. We continue to improve and refine our products based on what we as machinists and programmers, know the current needs of the manufacturing market are and will be.
