KME CNC’s five-axis tombstone configuration uses an address-based system with a router and receiver connection platform to enable wireless operation. Each tombstone is defined by its specific address, tapping into the router upon entering the machine envelope. At that time, the router engages only that tombstone. An individual router is capable of recognizing multiple discrete addresses, enabling it to control tombstones that are in a pallet-racking system as they become available in the machining envelope. The workholding system enables shops to perform five-axis machining wirelessly for flexibility in pallet pool, cell or standalone applications, and also eases upgrades of existing horizontal equipment to five-axis.
