NUM Corporation says its Flexium CNC kernel with its soft PLC is well accepted by specialized machine tool builders because of its scalability. This characteristic enables OEMs to use the same control system across a range of machine designs. It can be applied to small machines with as many as five axes and spindles or much larger machines with as many as 200 axes. This flexibility appeals to smaller machine tool builders with limited R&D resources that need to create custom solutions quickly.
