Variablespeed drives now provide diagnostics such as warnings on current draw values that can indicate deterioration in motor performance or which might highlight problems in the equipment connected to the motor shaft
Fanucrsquos arbitrary speed threading option allows operators to override the spindle speed during threading to control chatter
The challenge to the work cellrsquos developers was to design a flexible handling system around a compact turning machine and to make it scalable configurable to different machine models and proven reliable with millions of openclose cycles
Manufacturing with Robots, Automation Drives Growth
The ldquoruggedrdquo device is targeted at machine tool programmers operators and maintenance personnel
The grouprsquos combination of robotics systems and CNC controls makes it one of the most influential in global manufacturing
TMAC monitors tool conditions during production and automatically adjusts feedrates to maintain optimal conditions and result It is available for single or multiprocess machining
The Flexium 8 CNC kernel is a costeffective control module for small to medium machine tools that require coordinated movement of up to five axes
Once the finished bearing races have been automatically measured the hardturned components are engraved and then placed in shipping containers by the robot
The MSR TwinDrive was redesigned for performance and appearance ldquoas required for hightech machinetool component designrdquo according to Redex Itrsquos supplied as a selfcontained subassembly ready to be implemented Depending on machine arrangement the machine tool OEM can use a bevel box as an option
