Designed for aerospace applications, Fagor Automation USA’s 8065 CNC is equipped with features to enable high-speed machining while maintaining surface finish and accuracy. The platform is capable of controlling as many as 28 axes plus four separate spindles with four different execution channels, and includes auto-tuning system setup. In addition, the CNC provides block processing speeds of <0.5 microsec. while analyzing the tool path with high-speed block look-ahead using nanometric resolution. This feature, combined with the Fagor adaptive real-time feed and speed (ARFS)control,  enables the CNC to analyze machining conditions such as spindle load, servo power and tool tip temperature, and adapt both the axis feed rate and the spindle speed for maximum machining performance.

The control is said to reduce cycle time while improving part finish, extending spindle and servomotor life, and enhancing tool utilization. The aerospace-specific high-speed surface accuracy (HSSA) machining system reduces mechanical stress on the machine, increasing machine tool lifespan. Each CNC is offered with a 10" or 15" high-resolution LCD TFT color or touchscreen, Ethernet, USB, and a built-in touch-sensitive mouse pad.
