Cenon CAM - Software to make Hardware

Cenon is the leading manufacturing software for Apple computers, and never has to leave your side - from Design (or data-import) via pre-production to the control of the machine. With Cenon all manufacturing steps can be accomplished in one easy to use tool.

Versatile pre-production abilities with a logical workflow and speedy machining make Cenon a strong partner even in industrial competition. With Cenon's clean and state-of-the-art user interface on Apple Mac OS-X, working with Cenon is fun.



Cenon CAM

Cenon has been developed with a focus on flexibile manufacturing for the industrial sector as well as for model-making and sign-making. Cenon makes it possible to address a host of different tasks in one easy-to-use program, without making compromises.
Engraving and Pick-Out

Engraving and Pick-Out

For fine engravings, Cenon provides an advanced engraving feature, the Pick-Out. The Pick-Out is perfecting tight narrowings (like serifs) in 3-D by adjusting the immersion depth of the conical engraving tool. A must have for all delicate engravings.


This power-feature for flexible large scale production allows the recognition of location, rotation, and even deformation of a work-piece by using a camera mounted on the machine.


For making Embossing Tools, Coins, or Furniture, the relief function of Cenon can be applied. It turns the shades of an image into a three-dimensional elevation profile.
