The company designed the package to use the capabilities of the PC at the operator interface while also employing real-time digital signal processing to accommodate the motion-related tasks of the CNC machine. The modular design allows for a number of machine configurations.
The package includes a 15" LCD screen and customizable operator controls for an open architecture solution for OEM and retrofit CNC applications. The package supports high speed machining; multi-block, segmented look-ahead for path fidelity at any speed; kinematic capabilities for non-traditional mechanical configurations; fifth-axis programming capability; and lead screw and backlash compensation.
