EDM Control Displays Various Information in Single View
The M800 EDM control from MC Machinery Systems is included with Mitsubishi wire EDMs to increase productivity and help keep track of production jobs.
The M800 EDM control from MC Machinery Systems is included with Mitsubishi wire EDMs to increase productivity and help keep track of production jobs. The control uses rotational and tilting functionality while providing job monitoring and important information in a single view. A touch screen enables the user to swipe, pinch and tap to view.
The processable data available with this control ensures transparency in all production stages, and the navigation interface is designed to provide smooth and easy operation, so that production jobs can be completed quickly and accurately.
Additionally, the control enables the user to analyze machine profitability and see reserves to optimize processes and boost efficiency. Diagrams depict operating costs and output, and operating material statuses and maintenance cycles can be called up at a touch.
Currently, the MV1200-S, MV1200-R, MV2400-S and MV2400-R Advance wire EDM models feature the control. The company is also working on incorporating this technology into its laser machines.
Today, computer numerical control (CNC) machines are found almost everywhere, from small job shops in rural communities to Fortune 500 companies in large urban areas.
Parameters tell the CNC every little detail about the specific machine tool being used, and how all CNC features and functions are to be utilized.
It is common to machine several identical workpiece attributes from within a single program. Consider the four identical circular counter-bored holes that must be milled in the workpiece shown in Figure 1.
