Diversified Machine Systems and Partner, Fagor Automation, Announce New Developments in Powerful CNC Programming Tools

Strategic partner of Diversified Machine Systems, Fagor Automation, announces new features and technology developments to the Fagor 8065 CNC control system.

Colorado Springs, CO August 18, 2015


Fagor Automation, an international strategic partner of Diversified Machine Systems (DMS), an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of DMS CNC Routers and Large Format Machining Centers, announces advanced developments and new features to their CNC control systems.

Fagor Automation has developed and implemented an innovative, cost-effective feature called the Program-Section Editor for the Fagor 8065 CNC series. The Profile-Section Editor is a programming method for a 3D surface defined by a plane profile and one or several sectional profiles which allows programming solid of 3D surfaces without the need for external CAD/CAM applications, using ISO language, to define plane profiles as well as machining conditions.

The Profile-Section Editor may be used to machine grooves, holes, bosses in taper sections or of other types without the need for complicated trigonometric calculations. Since the programming can be achieved within a matter of minutes at the CNC keyboard instead of having to access an external CAD/CAM system, programming time is significantly reduced and part finish is improved.

The need for manual part finishing may be eliminated with reducing or increasing the pass depth. This will allow the operator to choose the machining strategy, making it a possibility to reduce load on the tool, which then increases the tool life and reduces the breakage of the tool and limits part damage. The possibility of spiral machining or ramp penetration in any programmed profile will eliminate drilling time and will result in optimal surface finish by continuous machining without leaving the part.

It is very important for the finishing pass to have the right machining strategy, especially when machining surfaces defined by a flat profile. In order to achieve maximum precision and productivity, it is recommended that the roughing and finishing operations are completed with a specific cutting tool for each operation. The tool table on the Fagor CNC control system has simple and intuitive graphics to set the geometric parameters and user life of the tools. The operator chooses the shape and size of the tool based on the size of the part and the operation they are carrying out, as well as the value of the finishing stock and the cutting depth in roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations.

With these new features and technology upgrades to the Fagor 8065 control series, customers experience better results with reduced programming time as well as improved part finish.

Fagor Automation is a worldwide Manufacturer of CNC Systems, Servo Motors & Drives, Feedback Systems, DRO Systems & Motion Control Systems and strategic partner with Diversified Machine Systems.
