 Ethernet Port ARIA 

Plug and play machine tending

Simple connection via Ethernet – Integrating ARIA’s machine tending solution to a CNC Mill, Lathe or Swiss machine with Mitsubishi Electric’s M8 Series CNC is as simple as plugging in an Ethernet cable. For CNC machines utilizing other controls, end-users can connect through discrete I/O, EtherNet IP, PROFIBUS or ANYWIRE ASLINK communication protocols too enable seamless connectivity and fast implementation.


Program and adjust on the fly with no need for robot expertise

Direct Robot Control CNC software – Through the Direct Robot Control (DRC) feature of our M8 Series CNC, operators can control and program the robot with menus and G-code from the same screen used for the machine tool. In addition, we offer preprogrammed software packages that are accessible and customizable via an HMI. Both solutions eliminate the need for staff with extensive robot programming experience to make adjustments on the fly.

 Embedded PLC ARIA 

Embedded FX5 PLC delivers superior functionality and flexibility

Flexible and intuitive – ARIA’s base has a small footprint that enables use in confined spaces. ARIA is powerful enough to act as a stand-alone system, or it can be easily implemented into an existing automation cell. ARIA utilizes our powerful FX5 PLC to enable functionality and flexibility for the most demanding applications. ARIA’s base houses all critical components required for operation, including: CR800 control, FX5 PLC, HMI, power supply, and air regulation.

All robot options can be found in our technical specification guide.
