Maximum CNC functionality in a minimum amount of space
In the field of CNC applications, our solutions portfolio and applications experience are unparalleled. Take, for a start, the optimally integrated hardware components:
Terminals or industrial PCs for operating and monitoring tasks
Fieldbus and local bus modules
Servo controllers and motors
Mechatronic solutions such as height control system with Z-axis mechanism
These components are capable of being configured to meet the needs of platforms for CNC complete solutions. Thus it is possible to support even the most sophisticated multi-channel CNC applications with up to 16 axes and cycle times of less than 1ms. In all this, the PLC functionality is already included. Solutions can be continuously improved through the development or upgrade of components
Practice makes perfect: CNC software
The application-specific heart of CNC complete solutions is the CNC software library. Its functional scope has been significantly extended in the course of decades of experience. The library is the basis for an automation solution tailored to meet the technological and geometrical requirements of typical path-control applications:
Look-ahead for optimisation of processing times
Block preparation for processing extremely short NC blocks
Feed-forward for compensating following velocity errors
Reverse travel and restart on contour
Spatial rounding for fast and smooth movements
Changeable acceleration profiles for varying load conditions
Block scan for random access during long-running machine operations
Teaching of axis positions with subsequent data reduction and generation of polynomials
Tangentially slaved C axis for tool orientation during contour machining
Synchronous axes / gantry axes for saving mechanical drive components
Tool administration and technology charts
Graphical CNC user interface for Windows XP and Windows 7
Formula interpreter for the creation of mathematically sophisticated part programmes
Path speed-dependent output signals for performance enhancement, dosing, etc.
Fast inputs and outputs for immediate reactions in the NC programme
Lead screw pitch and backlash compensation for the correction of mechanical faults
PLC positioning axes in parallel with contour machining
Touch-trigger input for fast data acquisition
Multiple-channel function for the simultaneous execution of several NC programmes
3D online spline for processing teach-in contour points in space
Tool slaving in space (6 axis) in consideration of machine geometry
Fast Z-axis slaving for focussing onto workpiece surface
3D axis compensation for the correction of mechanical tolerances
Geometry filter for the reduction of point density
Eckelmann has experience in numerous CNC applications from such areas, amongst others, as grinding, milling, handling, bar processing, shaping and many more.
As a current industry solution, Eckelmann offers the complete package “CNC for cutting”. Both the relevant HMI package and the NC and PLC operating system provide many functions that are tailored to meet requirements typical for the cutting with different tools.
In addition, Ferrocontrol’s traditional key industry sectors include window installation and profile processing. Complex CNC applications whose productivity is optimally supported by image processing solutions from Eckelmann are realised here.
CNC complete solutions
CNC complete solutions guarantee quick success in machine automation by virtue of optimally integrated components and the appropriate software.
Solutions on the basis of standard components which, for larger quantities, are modified and developed to meet application-specific requirements.
Flexible solutions capable of being continuously developed through extensions and upgrades to more powerful versions.
