Machining of steel and non-ferrous metals is possible in all dimensions thanks to CNC control of three tool axes. All axes use recirculating ball screws with no backlash and powerful stepper motors. Apart from this, the mechanical construction is almost identical to the milling machine FF 500.
The CNC control unit is the interface between the PC with the CAD/CAM software and the CNC milling machine. Data transfer from the PC takes place using an RS232 serial port interface. Microprocessors control the stepping motors on the three axial drives and the milling spindle drive. Two available output relays provide additional facilities, e.g. coolant or vacuum. The system includes connection cables with suitable plugs and a built-in power supply for connection to 220-240V.
The CAD window is displayed when the software starts. The workpiece contour is created using the familiar Windows environment. There are numerous programming aids including absolute and relative coordinate entry, in addition to mouse coordinate entry. The software can also import existing CAD files such as AutoCAD DXF and Hewlett-Packard HPGL. When the workpiece drawing is complete, it is automatically converted into the machine command set and processing can begin. The command set can also be manually edited or exported. CNC simulation and manual machining are both possible. The software is supplied on CD-ROM and requires the Windows operating system.
The system is supplied complete with CNC control unit, CNC software, all connecting cables, 6, 7, 10 and 12mm chucks and a detailed manual.
