Fagor Automation Corporation’s 8055 FL and Power series controls are designed to work with the company’s digital servo/motor systems and Fagor Aboslute linear and rotary encoder solutions.
The 8055 FL (first line) compact CNC is capable of up to four-axis milling, grinding or general-purpose applications on small- and mid-sized machining centers. The 8055 Power is available on a modular platform and is designed for up to seven-axis applications on mid- and large-sized, high-performance machining centers.
The controls incorporate a high-performance micro-processor with improved machining algorithms designed for faster cycle times with a smoother and more accurate part finish. Both models include an updated user interface with an ergonomic screen layout and color design with softer pastel colors, the company says. These modifications are designed to improve operator concentration and reduce visual fatigue. However, the CNC can also be reverted back to the screen design of the previous 8055 models if desired.
The USB port has been brought out to the keyboard to ease program uploading or downloading. Ethernet and RS 232 serial port communication capability remains the same for both new models.
