Diversified Machine Systems Announces International Partner Fagor Automation's Free Online CNC 8060 Simulator Tool

Colorado Springs-based 3 & 5 Axis CNC router designer & manufacturer, Diversified Machine Systems (DMS), introduces Fagor Automation's free CNC 8060 Simulator Tool available online. Fagor CNC Controllers are standard features on most DMS CNC Machine Centers.

Colorado Springs, CO March 06, 2014

Diversified Machine Systems, a leading US-based 3 & 5-axis CNC machine center designer and manufacturer in Colorado Springs, CO, announces Fagor Automation's CNC 8060 Simulator available at FagorAutomation.com.

The 8060 Simulator allows users the ability to utilize the intuitive Editor for offline programming using a host of software tools designed for easy program creation. The Interactive Editor allows the user to choose the type of operation needed in an Interactive method. The CNC Simulator then prompts a graphic example of the operation selected, and allows for seamless variable entry through a question and answer, fill-in-the-blank format.

"At DMS and for our DMS clients, the Fagor Simulator has become an increasingly valuable tool. We use the simulator to educate and train customers, especially new users in advance of receiving their machinery", explains DMS Executive Vice President & CSO, Ed Hilligrass. "Large and small companies alike use the simulator to gain a competitive edge, because it allows their engineers and sales team to quickly evaluate, create, and respond to bid packages."

As an advanced feature, the CNC Simulator allows users to setup the online tool as is the 8060 CNC Controller, and actual specific machine tools are configured utilizing a library of parameters, with all considerations of the type of machine, axes travels & machine dynamics included in the program creation and in the simulation of the finished program. The Simulator even takes into account the Feeds and Acceleration/Deceleration of the actual machine tool during the simulation, thus providing accurate machining cycle time estimates.

Upon completion, the user can upload and download the programs to the CNC Machine Tool. There are no program size limitations that can be created or uploaded to the CNC. The Simulator is available for most conventional Milling & Turning machine tool configurations. Fagor Automation has announced that a more advanced commercial version capable of more advanced machine configurations will be available in the near future.

Fagor Automation designed the free 8060 Simulator to be a useful tool for:

*Technical Trainings
*Editing/Simulation in Design Departments
*Machining Cycle time estimates
*Valuable for Quotation preparation
*Shop floor program creation for the Operator while Machine is in an active executing program

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
