CNC Controls

CNC or Computer Numerical Controls are the operating system or brain of a CNC system. A controller completes the all important link between a computer system and the mechanical components of a CNC machine. The controller's primary task is to receive conditioned signals from a computer or indexer and interpret those signals into mechanical motion through motor output. There are several components that make up a controller and each component works in unison to produce the desired motor movement.

808D (Entry Level Control)

Thanks to its panel-based CNC design requiring only few interfaces and an operator panel with degree of protection IP65, the SINUMERIK 808D/808D ADVANCED is perfectly prepared for the use in harsh environments. With its small dimensions, it can be used on compact machines. At the same time, the SINUMERIK 808D/808D ADVANCED allows convenient operation with short-stroke keys and the well-known SINUMERIK softkeys.

Typical fields of application - Perfectly preconfigured for:

  • Basic standard machines with up to 4 axes/spindle in one machining channel
  • Inclined bed and flatbed CNC machines
  • Flatbed manual controlled semi-CNC lathes (Manual Machine plus)

Benefits

Arumatic - Exclusive to Kitamura Machines

Arumatic - Exclusive to Kitamura Machines

The user interface is the Windows XP operating system, offering the user the ability to simultaneously execute programs while engaging any compatible Windows based software, to include any CAD/CAM systems. A 3-year control components warranty comes standard with purchase.

The Arumatik-Mi control offers the user more practical communication and visible use. Operation processes are divided into three steps, ‘Monitor’, ‘Set-Up’ and ‘Edit’, and necessary information is aggregated into the three screens. These screens can be displayed by just a single touch of a button on the keyboard or touch screen. Customizable tabs allow the user to select necessary operation from the operation menu, and pop-up screens allow the user to access desired information while the original screen remains displayed.

Standard with a 19” LCD and dual keyboard layout (Kitamura conventional style control coupled with standard keyboard design) the Arumatik-Mi control offers comfortable and advanced operation for a variety of machining applications along with the ability to transfer existing Fanuc programs. The operation panel swings out 90º and comes equipped with a standard fixed remote pulse generator, making set-up for the operator easier.
