CNC Provides High-Speed Machining with Accurate Surface Finishes
Westec 2017: The Fagor 8065 CNC is designed for high-performance applications and equipped with features for high-speed machining while maintaining accuracy and surface finish.
The Fagor 8065 CNC is designed for high-performance applications and equipped with features for high-speed machining while maintaining accuracy and surface finish.
The CNC is offered with a high-resolution LCD TFT color or touchscreen, Ethernet, USB and built-in touch-sensitive mouse pad. It can control as many as 28 axes and four separate spindles with four different execution channels and includes auto-tuning system set-up capability. In addition, the 8065 CNC has block processing speeds of less than 0.5 msec. and high-speed block lookahead which analyzes tool path with nanometric resolution.
Combined with Fagor’s adaptive real-time feed and speed control, the CNC can analyze conditions such as spindle load, servo power and tooltip temperature and adapt both the axis feed rate and the spindle speed for machining performance productivity. The company says that results include reduced cycle time, improved part finish, extended spindle and servomotor life, and improved tool utilization. It can also be equipped with an aerospace-specific high-speed surface accuracy machining system, which is said to reduce stress on the machine, extending tool life.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
Though applied for different reasons on different machine types, all forms of compensation allow the CNC user to allow for unpredictable conditions related to tooling.
Effectively commanding motion on most CNC machines requires more than describing how the CNC machine determines the end point position for each motion.
