Cutting-edge technology used in cutting machines.

Costantino is a powerful and flexible CNC that helps to reach the best results with limited efforts in all types of applications.

Costantino CNC is the ideal solution for both new machines and retrofits.
Machines equipped with CNC Costantino can meet all requirements of Industry 4.0.


3 to 5 axes machines cutting with high-pressure water and abrasive, orienting the jet to create shaped edges.

Specific requirements:

  • Constant nozzle-to-material distance control
  • Very long part-program execution that must be interrupted and resumed on the last part of cut trajectory
  • Leveraging cutting time with quality of cut

Plasma & Oxy

3 to 5 axes machines cutting with plasma source or oxidizer-fuel torch, or a combination of both, orienting the cut direction with Bevel head to create shaped edges.

Specific requirements

  • Constant torch-to-material distance control
  • Cutting feed as constant as possible
  • Apply appropriate cutting technology parameters to have best cutting quality
  • Use of high-definition sources


2D cutting machines cutting with CO2 or Fiber laser.

Specific requirements

  • High speed cutting possible due to high power concentration, especially for thin materials

  • Constant torch-to-material distance control
  • Continuous interaction with supervisor and production manager software
  • Apply appropriate cutting technology parameters to have best cutting quality
  • Fly cutting

Key CNC features

  • PC-based solution, a single hardware hosting CNC together with HMI and CAM with completely separated and independent resources, to increase reliability and cut cost
  • Look ahead up to 256 blocks, more than 15.000 instructions/second
  • Standard ISO6983 syntax for full machining definition and parametric nested programming, that simplify interface with third parts CAD-CAM
  • Gantry axes
  • Jerk-controlled movements of all axes involved in movement and separately of the tool tip, to prevent mechanical stress and reach the best finishing surface
  • High speed machining to smooth corners while keeping a defined tolerance, to reduce mechanic vibration, cut machining time and improve finishing results
  • Volumetric compensation of positioning inaccuracies due to mechanical asymmetries and machine misalignments
  • Vibration suppression algorithms to prevent part damages, extend machine lifetime and increase machining quality
  • Coordinates and working origins roto-translation and mirroring
  • High speed machining available on 5 axes interpolation
  • Programming tool tip position and orientation with Tool Centre Point (TCP) applied to Bevel heads
  • Appropriate management of compensated heads
  • TCP parameter auto tuning cycles available. Newly found parameters can correct CAM generated part-programs to match with reality
  • Real feed rate applied on trajectory including orientation changes in compensated heads
  • Management of auxiliary functions with no need to stop movement
  • Trajectory followed in forward and backward direction (RETRACE)
  • Support of many different servo digital interfaces control of servos with position or velocity reference even pulse-dir servos or stepper motor can perform at their best
  • Velocity feed forward and Torque Feed Forward to have trajectory following error close to 0
  • OPC UA server to connect with MES
  • Remote I/Os connected with EtherCAT fieldbus thousands of I/O signals can be exchanged
  • IO-Link interface gateway
  • Integrated safety with FSoE


  • Easy integration of OEM HMI using reusable user controls or customization of the ISAC provided interface
  • High definition, interactive machining preview that operator can rotate, pan or zoom. Path already cut is identified using different colors to quickly understand the amount of work done

Working aids

  • Consumable life management
  • Resume of machining after unexpected shutdown from last executed block or from any graphically selected block. Works with repetitions and nested macros
  • Support of suspension of machining, manual check and maintenance and resume from position in trajectory or outside of trajectory with automatic intersection of the trajectory
  • Extremely reactive torch-to-material distance control using different feedback sensor able to keep a tolerance of 1/10 mm even with Bevel heads
  • Dynamic TCP to compensate water jet deflection
  • Integrated cutting process parameters database within the part-program. CAM can select parameters based on material, thickness and required cutting quality in the specific sides. Operator can force a different selection
  • Parameter database editor
  • Frog jump movements between shapes to cut
  • Laser power output PWM adjustment to current dynamics
  • Start and stop cutting without stop moving (Fly Cutting).

PLC logic environment

  • Powerful PLC logic shell compliant with IEC61131 standard
  • Extensive application libraries

In addition to a general purpose CNC that OEM can use to develop its own application, Costantino CNC offers ready to work solutions, based on the same CNC, and with application layer included.
