1982. CNC for Milling and Lath: one 16 bits microprocessor to control machine and two 8 bits microprocessors for the User Interface.
1984. The same CNC for Punching, Polish and Wood machine center.
1986. First step for PC based. Use of a PC as an intelligent terminal substituting the two 8 bits microprocessors of the CNC. The PC-AT cost in 1986 was around 4500 Euros. The progressive lens by INDO brand was the first who used it (still now).
1987. After Fidia, the second Copy System for milling and the first using a PC-based CNC system.
1988. Already as "SHEnz" company, CNC for EDM was developed successfully.
1990. "SHEnz" introduced its own hardware to improve notably CNC's reliability.
1991. CNC for Oxyfuel and Plasma machines. Axis can move backward following same path.
1993. Already as "SHEnz, S.L.", new hardware version to make the most-reliable CNC by reducing drastically the size.
1994. Close collaboration with EDM and POLISHING customers to help them to achieve a worldwide success.
1995. First and sole CNC that has the CE mark in compliance with the European Electromagnetic Compatibility 86/336/CEE (for industrial environment).
class A (Emission Standars).
a copy of the EMC certification
1996. Beginning of WiMAC (Graphical User Interface under MS-Windows) as a first step toward the totally PC-based CNC.
1996. CNC for Laser machine as a demand of the Oxyfuel manufacturers.
1998. First totally PC-based CNC version was failed because of use of MS-DOS and 16-bits Macroassembler for the CNC kernel and the develop of a proprietary Field-Bus.
2000. WiMAC looks nice and good, but... totally PC-based CNC version already under MS-Windows had again been written to have also in ANSI-C the CNC kernel and to be portable to others O.S. and platforms.
2000. DUNA BCN, S.L. is the engineering department of SHEnz.
2002. All problems to obtain the totally PC-based CNC version had been already solved successfully due to the knowledge of Hard Real Time applications under MS-Windows and the use of the CAN field bus.
2003. "SHEnz, S.L." and other company tried to join themselves to begin with a new project for future.
April 2004. "
electronica, S.L." starts same activity substituting the old "SHEnz, S.L." name (DUNA BCN is the only shareholder).
