LYNCA-PCS is the version of the LYNCA-CNC applied to the punch presses. LYNCA-PCS controls punch presses having fixed, rotational or turret type tool heads. In addition, with many specific user interfaces, LYNCA-PCS offers CAD/CAM programming advantages with the built-in specific 2D tool, multi-tool and part editors. Thanks to the integrated simulation and optimization functions -that run also off-line in a remote PC- it becomes very easy to manage the creation and the production of parts directly from the LYNCA-PCS environment.

LYNCA-PCS has also advanced 2D visualization tools for the display of running productions.

There are three types of implementation for punching machines:

Standard Models
- Fix head punching machines

Rotational Models
- Punching machines with rotational head

Turret Models
- Punching machines with turret head
