Enhanced Lathe System
Milling features and multi-axis, multi-part system control features have been significantly improved. Progress has been made in operability, enabling operators to implement ever more complex machining in an easy and efficient manner.
Implement ever more complex machining in an easy and efficient manner
Milling features have been improved through high-speed high-accuracy control and SSS control. Multi-axis, multi-part system control features have also been upgraded. A wide array of these features help ensure high productivity. Significant progress has also been made in frequently used operation as well as programming, such as tool offset and workpiece coordinate system shift, which allows operators to easily implement ever more complex machining.
Improved milling features using a tool spindle
High-speed high-accuracy control features accumulated originally for machining centers are now available in lathe system. Fine milling can be implemented at high speeds on a lathe. This CNC enables a servo motor, instead of a spindle, to act as a tool spindle. Any of the servo control axes driven by multi-hybrid drive can be used as a tool spindle. This contributes to the downsizing of machine tools.
Multi-axis multi-part system control features help to reduce cycle time and maintain synchronization between part systems
M800/M80 Series provides “Spindle superimposition control, “a feature that enables simultaneous execution of turning and center tapping, although they needed to be executed individually. These features are effective in eliminating idle time, resulting in a significant reduction in tact time. This CNC also offers features that maintain synchronization between part systems, which is required for automatic lathes, in particular. These enable operators to implement ever more complex machining safely and securely.
Significantly easier programming
Programming has been made much easier: program edit screen shows the synchronization points between part systems in an easyto- understand display, and conversational programming allows insertion of canned cycles. After programming, operators can check the programs through 3D work simulation before actual cutting.
