ADVANCED CONTROL FOR MACHINING AEROSPACE PARTS
CAD/CAM-generated programs used to design parts commonplace in the aerospace market are large and require a specific CNC System treatment in order to obtain the maximum speed with the desired precision. The solution implemented by the 8065 CNC system to process CAD/CAM generated programs consist of the combination of splines and polynomial transitions as well as the interpretation of the NURB format utilized by CAD/CAM programs. This process helps achieve high feedrate machining while maintaining the accuracy required by all geometries to be machined, thus decreasing cycle execution time substantially.
The 8065 Volumetric Compensation (FVC) maps the total work volume of the machine, thus ensuring theCNCunderstands the exact position of the tool at all times. The benefits include a 50 percent improvement in machine accuracy over traditional compensation methods as well as machine to machine uniformed accuracy improvements. Ethernet communication allows the 8065 to be quickly and easily set-up as another node within the computer network, thus data exchange is fast and easy. The 8065 also contains the capability of executing a program residing on another PC, through the Ethernet port to increase shop floor flexibility.
All of this technology combines with the exclusive IIP Programming (Interactive Icon-based Pages) Conversational Programming that simplifies programming by allowing the operator to choose the operation based upon an operation associated ICON key. The operator simply enters in the data directly off the blueprint, hence, no priorCNCprogramming experience is required. The ICON key brings a single graphic assist screen that contains all variables necessary for the operation including finishing pass variables, thus eliminating the need to shuffle through various screen pages to input your machining variable data.
Fast and easy operation is also accomplished utilizing an easy pop-up browsing operation philosophy, ensuring navigation through the CNCcapability is simple and straightforward. Custom browsing allows the ability to filter the information the operators wish to utilize and hide other non-essential information. www.fagorautomation.com
