MECHATROLINK-III Certified CNC Controller Ensures Precise Control of Machine Automation

NEXCOM's NControl 30 CNC Controller manages the complexity and sophistication of 5-axis CNC machining with ease, thereby reinvigorating machine automation at full throttle.

NEXCOM MECHATROLINK-III-certified CNC Controller, NControl 30, holds machine automation to a high standard, yielding superior quality output of CNC machining. The PC-based CNC controller brings machine builders the openness of PC architecture, high-speed and highly-reliable control of MECHATROLINK-III, and flexibility in machine development. Meticulous to details and precise in execution, the NControl 30 manages the complexity and sophistication of 5-axis CNC machining with ease, thereby reinvigorating machine automation at full throttle.


As a high performance PC-based CNC controller, the NControl 30 supports advanced CNC functions to produce a smooth surface finish. With built-in functions, such as tool center point (TCP) and look ahead planning and support for function expansion, the NControl 30 can equip 5-axis CNC machines and turning centers with all the dexterity required of 3D high-speed multi-channel machining. The NControl 30 can not only run a wide variety of machining processes including laser cutting, wood working, lathing, milling, and engraving; it can also consolidate auxiliary functions as supplements to CNC machines.

With quality coming first and foremost in manufacturers' minds, the NControl 30 has acquired MECHATROLINK-III compliance verification to keep CNC machines operating to stringent requirements. Taking advantage of error detection and noise resistance features of MECHATROLINK-III, the NControl 30 can ensure control commands are delivered accurately to slave drives and I/Os. The CNC controller can synchronize and coordinate all slave devices, enabling fluent movements of all axes. In addition to MECHATROLINK-III, the NControl 30 is also available with EtherCAT master which is suited to large-scale machining processes.

As CNC functions differ significantly from application to application, the NControl 30 offers flexible CNC design with a pre-installed Windows-based programming development tool 4CONTROL and HMI programming tool WinNBI. Machine builders can modify built-in CNC functions, redeveloping application-specific features to demonstrate their core competence; or build customized CNC HMI to further differentiate the CNN machine from competitors. NEXCOM also offers the dual-OS option with the NControl 30D, enabling CNC machines to run computer-aided design tool and more.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
