Streamline & Visualize Your Machine Data
Chatter is a cloud-based platform that helps machine shops visualize their data in realtime, without the headache of complicated integration.
Our algorithms do all the heavy lifting to collect, process, and parse your data so management and operators can cut through the noise and see the data that really matters.
Most customers are able to integrate their machines into Chatter in less than 15 minutes. Our goal is for our users to hit the ground running from day one.
Let's be honest - most industrial software is super hard to use and ugly to look at. We worked very hard to make using Chatter a breeze.
How is Chatter Different?
Chatter was concieved, built, and tested in a real machine shop with the goal of creating an easy to use data platform for CNC machine data that goes beyond just simple metrics to drive real productivity improvements.
It all started in 2020 when Chatter's founder, Pete, was looking for a way to stay on top of the shop floor while doing all the day-to-day work of running a shop. Existing tools would report metrics, but nothing really allowed operators to understand how their goals and how they were meeting them.
Years of development have led us to what Chatter is today: A powerful, yet easy to use platform so everyone in the shop is on the same page, working towards the common goal of increased throughput, consistent quality, and smooth production.
Join us on our journey as we continue to push the boundaries of what can be done with machine data.
Haas Next Generation Control (NGC) and Classic machines are compatible with Chatter. Please note, the classic control requires a Chatterbox.
Doosan, Matsuura, Tsugami, and more
Fanuc controls are compatible with Chatter via their FOCAS2 protocol. Currently requires a Chatterbox, but Desktop Connector support is planned.
DMG Mori machines with CELOS controls support the MTConnect protocol, and are supported by Chatter
Modern networked Mazak machines support the MTConnect protocol, and are supported by Chatter Connect.
Modern networked Okuma machines support the MTConnect protocol, and are supported by Chatter Connect.
Modern networked Hurco machines support the MTConnect protocol, and are supported by Chatter Connect.
Modern networked Brother machines support are supported by Chatter Connect via the native Brother protocol.
Chatter and the Chatter Desktop Connector both support Heidenhain controls.
Siemens integration is currently on our product roadmap. It is currently possible to integrate Siemens controls using a third-party MTConnect adapter.
Mitsubishi integration is currently on our product roadmap, but not in active development. It is currently possible to integrate Mitsubishi controls using a third-party MTConnect adapter.
Frequently Asked Questions
What machines does Chatter support?
Chatter currently supports Haas (Classic & NGC), Fanuc i-Series, Brother, Mazak, Okuma, Hurco, and Heidenhain controls. We're working on adding support for other controls
How much does it cost?
We charge a simple $80/mo per machine per month, or $50/mo per machine per month if purchased annually. There are absolutley no hardware, setup, or integration fees.
How long does it take to set up?
Our typical install takes only 15 minutes. We spent a lot of time making sure the process is as easy as possible.
