Advanced Auto-Tuning CNC Feature for Fagor 8065 & 8070 CNC Controllers
Colorado Springs-based 3 Axis CNC & 5 Axis CNC Router Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Diversified Machine Systems (DMS), announces Fagor Automation’s new auto-tuning CNC capability to improve machining efficiency and performance. Diversified Machine Systems (DMS) international strategic partner, Fagor Automation announces a new technology feature that automatically fine-tunes Machine Servo Performance to maximize your CNC machine tools efficiency and functionality. Developed as a tool that can be loaded directly onto a Fagor 8065, 8070 CNC or on a PC, the Auto-Tuning feature has the ability to carry out a fine Servo-Performance tune one axis at a time, or all axes automatically. The program allows for multi-machine tuning, by utilizing an ICON directory for each machine for fast and easy selection. The Main Tuning Screen displays a Graphic section, Menu Bar, ICON bar, Axes Bar, Command Bar, Parameter Table, Monitoring area, Results area, Data information of all active commands and a Status Bar, thus providing a single page simple layout that allows quick and easy access to any data the User desires with a single click. From the Main menu, with the ICON keys, you can quickly jump to the Event Log, Configure Mode or Display Help mode or back to the Main Menu at any time. Even during the tuning process, operators can start, stop, pause or continue the tuning procedure via menu chosen keys. Within the Graphics mode, you can display the Bode frequency response diagrams that allow the user to interpret the dynamic behavior of the axes, and make decisions for later readjustments of the axes control loops. Within the Operating mode, the user takes measurements and develops a more detailed display of the various Diagrams. The user may activate up to 4 channels, or modify the scale shown. After completion of the Auto-Tuning Process, the user can then save all changes made with the Validate command. The Fagor Auto-Tuning feature has shown dramatic improvements in not just Part-Finish, but also Cycle Speeds, due to an optimized Servo Response that matches the dynamics of the Machine Tool size, weight and inertia. Machine reliability and longevity will also be improved due to a Servo System that provides more fluid machine movements, hence reducing mechanical stress.
“We’re excited about the continued improvements to the 8065 and 8070 CNC Controllers, because we know our customers are always looking for ways to streamline and improve their machining processes,” says Ed Hilligrass, DMS Executive Vice President & CSO. “Much like Fagor, we are always striving to give our clients a better experience.”
