Automation Platform Updated with CNC, Dedicated CPU
Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s C80 Series CNC enables increased productivity and lower cycle times for users of the company’s Melsec iQ-R automation platform.
Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s C80 series CNC enables increased productivity and lower cycle times for the company’s Melsec iQ-R automation platform. The rack-based C80 features a CNC-dedicated CPU to maximize the control’s performance.
The system’s CNC functions and drive units promote high-speed, accurate machining and its high-speed system bus provides large-capacity data communication, resulting in increased productivity and reduced cycle times.
According to the company, the system is designed especially for rotary dial machines, production machines using multiple processes and automotive transfer lines. Benefits include improved productivity, flexible system configuration, user-friendly functionality, low maintenance and safety measures compliant with global standards.
The system enables users to control all CNC CPUs on a PLC rack. Three CPUs control up to 21 system components and 48 axes for high-axis-count applications. In addition, the system can communicate with any module that can be used in a rack-based solution.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
This concept introduces the three basic modes of operation, presents examples of when they are used, explores more about the mode switch, and categorizes each position of the mode switch into one of the three basic modes.
These subjects are the building blocks of training newcomers on a specific CNC machine tool.
