IMTS 2014 - CNC innovations designed to improve machining performance at IMTS 2014

FANUC will demonstrate a CNC platform with built-in Bluetooth technology and a digital servo adapter among other technologies that are designed to improve machining performance and maintenance at IMTS 2014 Booth #S-8919.

FANUC America Corporation introduces CNC innovations designed to improve machining performance, ease of use, and maintenance at IMTS 2014 Booth #S-8919. These include the Series 0i-F CNC, a CNC platform with built-in Bluetooth technology and a digital servo adapter with an EtherCAT interface.


The Series 0i-F has common operability, maintainability and networking options as the Series 30i CNC along with having a highly compatible PMC ladder. The combination of using the same motors, amplifiers, peripheral devices (safety machine operator's panel, I/O module/unit, iPendant, interface unit for handy machine operator's panel) as the Series 30i is intended to simplify the usage and maintenance of the Series 0i-F. Seamless and common PMC functions among both the 0i-F and 30i-B CNCs include: multi-path PMC, ladder dividing management, function block, multi-language comment, and I/O Link i.

FANUC's CNC platform allows for enhanced CNC functionality using PC technology. Built-in Bluetooth on the CNC allows for the use of wireless technology that can operate a CNC by keyboard or mouse. Advanced PC applications such as CAD/CAM or NCGuide are also on the CNC remotely. Other features include enhanced 3D graphics with Manual Guide i, a data server with larger storage, and the ability to use peripheral devices.

FANUC introduces CNC innovations that improve machining performance, ease of use and maintenance at IMTS 2014 Booth #S-8919.The Digital Servo Adapter with new EtherCAT interface adds power to applications needing high-speed and high-accuracy. The EtherCAT interface is designed for industrial machines like servo press machines, wire saw machines, and electric injection molding machines.

CFE Media will sponsor the 2014 Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit on Sept. 10 starting at 8:15 a.m. in Room W190 in the West Wing of McCormick Place.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
