Brief description of software and hardware:
The software is harmonized with mechanics, motors and the control unit of the CNC machine, thus offering the optimum performance.
The CNC control unit controls the step motors of the machine. The PC software provides the machine with the geometry information for travel of the tools (via RS 232 interface). This means that the control unit is the interface between software and the mechanics of the machine.
Powerful micro processors and accordingly dimensioned step motors and phases ensure that the motors always provide enough power for any machining processes. Two freely usable output relays in the casing of the control unit provide facilities for control of additional functions, e.g. a working lamp. Including connection cables with suitable plugs and built-in power supply for connection to 220 – 240V.Simple creation of work piece geometry
The CAD window is displayed when the programme starts. The work piece contour is created in the familiar WINDOWS® environment. Numerous auxiliary aids help during programme operation, which supports both coordinate entry (absolute and relative) in addition to mouse use. Read-in of existing files in standard file formats (e.g. .dxf or .hpgl) is possible. Technology information is allocated to every drawing element. This makes, for example, different processing speeds and manual tool replacement possible.
Automatic generation of CAM data
The finished drawing of the tool is converted, by a mouse click, into the instruction set for the machine. So, machining can be started immediately. The instruction set generated in this way is in accordance with DIN/ISO 66025 and can be manually edited and exported. Conversely, the system also permits importing or complete self writing of data sets.
Manual work The handwheels are replaced with the step motors of the CNC machine. Nevertheless, manual machining is possible with the help of cursor buttons, since the step motors can be operated manually.
Software installation The PC software is supplied on a CD ROM. The problem-free installation is effected automatically under Windows®.plugs and built-in power supply for connection
