Fanuc FA America will offer 10 different learning labs on each day of the inaugural imX (interactive manufacturing experience) industry event, which is scheduled for September 12-14 in Las Vegas and aims to deliver an interactive educational experience.
One of the learning labs will focus on advanced control features that improve surface finish, reduce cycle time and simplify programming and program management for high speed machining and single-step processing of critical parts. Another will highlight five-axis machining and methods for using modern CAD/CAM and CNC features to minimize post processor complexity, reduce cycle times and improve part quality. Other learning lab topics include: cost savings through CNC innovation; simple robot integration; machine optimization; how to get performance, reliability and innovation in an affordable CNC; benefits to an Open CNC design; simple CNC/robot integration; and data mining through CNC connectivity.
In addition, the company will discuss the cost-effectiveness of its equipment in terms of total cost of ownership (TCO) and the lifecycles of machines.
