FANUC CNC America unveils advanced CNC control innovations at IMTS 2010,
Booth #S-8919. These include: new model 30i-B Series CNC Control, 0i-D/0i-DMate
Control with newly enhanced functionality, new 35i-B CNC Control for
transferline machines, new 5-axis volumetric error compensation and
comprehensive industry solutions.
The new FANUC CNC 30i-B Series
Control is an upgrade from the 30i-A Series. The 30i-B Series offers newly
enhanced features and functions with new advancements in operability and
maintainability including: USB memory port, enhancements in dual safety check,
new punch press and laser functionality. For advanced machining with high
accuracy, the 30i-B boasts advancements in high speed 5-axis capabilities with
proven architecture and software algorithms to drastically reduce cycle times while
improving part accuracy and quality. For complex machining processes, this is
the ideal combination of reliability and high speed 5-axis features. The 30i-B also features "High Speed Smooth
TCP", high speed - multi-path PMC, enhanced tilted working plane and high speed
smoothing functions, enhanced DSPs for advanced servo control such as
multi-axis control and high speed current control and arbitrary speed
threading. In addition, the 30i-B has
enhanced FSSB and network performance, enhanced diagnostic functions for MTTR
reduction and enhanced DSP for advanced servo control.
The 0i-D/0i-D Mate Control offers
newly enhanced features and functionality that are powerful, yet cost
effective. These include: nano
interpolation, Al contour II control, jerk control, tool management function
and grinding functions.
The new 35i-B Control, based on
the cutting edge 30i-B series, is for transferline machines. Ideal for simple high speed drilling and
transfer machining, the 35i-B is equipped with a touch screen machine operator
panel and embedded Ethernet.
Design engineer compensation varies widely by location. If you live in Boston, your salary will average more than $90,000, nearly $20,000 above the national average. But if you live in Cleveland, your salary will average almost $10,000 below the national average.
A theme that was reflected in several ways at NPE 2015 was the use of 3D printing to assist in, or improve on, injection molding, as well as improvements in 3D printing materials and processes that are making better functional prototypes and end-use parts.
For many years, it was believed that the strongest biological substance on Earth was spider silk, but new research says aquatic snails produce an even stronger material that could disrupt manufacturing forever.
Most everyone thinks they are ready for an emergency or a disaster. Most everyone is wrong. But engineers are a unique position here as both the designers and beneficiaries of emergency preparedness systems.
