FANUC America offers its CNC simulator for educational use, providing learners with exposure to a FANUC control without the need for a machine tool. The simulator is based on the company’s Series 0i Model F platform and can be programmed as a three-axis mill or a two-axis, single-spindle turning system. The simulator is portable and requires only a standard wall outlet for power.

The fully-functional simulator comprises a complete FANUC CNC with a 10.4" LCD monitor and a QWERTY keyboard. Users can transfer the programs to a machine using the built-in Ethernet connections or standard Flash ATA or USB interface.

The FANUC Manual Guide i conversational programming interface enables users to graphically generate programs that are simulated in 3D prior to being converted back to conventional NC programs and used on machine tools. The interface simplifies programming and enhances productivity, the company says.
