Fagor Automation's 8065 Quercus Control Provides Greater Processing Speeds
IMTS Spark: The 8065 Quercus control system from Fagor Automation is a PC-based controller is adaptable to all modern web-based human-machine interfaces (HMIs).
The 8065 Quercus control system from Fagor Automation is a PC-based controller is adaptable to all modern web-based human-machine interfaces (HMIs). Powered with a multi-processor Quadcore platform, the control has faster CPU processing speeds and greater memory capacity to support improved and more powerful control algorithms. The control features AI-based machine learning algorithms; data capture and analysis; and online CNC support including training, tuning, troubleshooting, video tutorials, and feature updates. Included is a library of technical tools such as Dynamic Machining Control (AI machine learning), High Speed Surface Accuracy, Fagor Feed Control and Open System.
Apart from numerical control, the integral Quercus solution includes servo modules, power supplies, communication buses, spindle motors and full digital feedback systems. The system’s hardware has been reengineered, saving space inside the electrical cabinet and reducing the overall size and final cost of the machines. The system also has a new communication bus between the CNC and the drive modules. It uses Sercos III industrial Ethernet technology, allowing speeds up to 100 MBd and reducing times for the velocity loop of the axes.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
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.
Effectively commanding motion on most CNC machines requires more than describing how the CNC machine determines the end point position for each motion.
