Key Benefits
  • CNC-dedicated CPU – Improved cycles times due to faster program processing and more accurate machining due to a faster CNC to drive communication network
  • Intuitive Touch Screen Operation (Excludes 8.4") – Icon-based navigation improves usability for experienced and novice operators. Screen sizes of 10.4", 15", and 19" allow improved visibility and include pinch, flick and scroll abilities like a smart phone or tablet.
  • Improved SSS Control – Reduces machine vibration during high speed cutting and optimizes acceleration/deceleration times for each axis. This allows for shorter cutting times with a high degree of accuracy.
  • Large Capacity SD Card Expansion – With 2 expansion slots for 32GB SD cards, the control can expand to 64GB of added memory. The additional memory allows for large capacity machining programs and graphic data, increasing the possibility to add custom screens.
  • High-speed, High-accuracy Mode – G05 P20000 (High-speed High Accuracy III) comes standard, allowing for complex, highly precise 3D mold work without experiencing a reduction in performance.
    Control
  • Safety Feature Built-in – MDS-E series drives with safety built-in the amplifiers require less hardware to provide safety features.
  • User Level Based Data Protection – M8 series allows for multiple levels of permissions for operators depending on their role.
  • Field Network Compatibility – Connect to peripheral equipment and devices conforming to a range of field networks including CC-Link®, PROFIBUS® DP, and EtherNet/IP™.
