Based on Heidenhain’s NC kernel and processor technology, the Acu-Rite 3500i CNC control features a touchscreen operator interface designed to optimize program navigation, editing, creation and verification. Conversational programming is edited in plain language and uses a set of canned cycles to improve programming speed. For additional versatility, G-code programming also is available via an onscreen keyboard and a G-code help editor.
The CNC control also features a built-in, 2 ½D CAM system that enables the operator to complete complicated contours quickly and easily with minimal part data, the company says. It is available in both Kit (for knee-mill applications) and OEM configurations.
