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.

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.
