ENP Newswire -
Release date- 07102013 - FANUC CNC Series 30i/31i-L MODEL B high-speed laser controls offer fabricators streamlined efficiency and increased productivity using Ethernet and Ethernet/IP field bus options and newly supported FANUC NCGuide simulation software.
Integration of the FANUC Series 30i/31i-L MODEL B CNC and robots to cell controllers, using Ethernet and Ethernet/IP field bus options, makes it easy for fabricators to now manage operations across equipment controlled by various systems. This solution directly addresses today's fabricator challenges of increasing complexity of machine systems, new safety and security requirements, and the growing importance of information technologies.
As a result of the release of Ethernet/IP field bus connectivity for FANUC Series 3xi-B CNCs,
The Series 30i/31i-L MODEL B CNC has an embedded Ethernet interface, allowing the user to integrate the CNC system into a company network for data collection or for high-speed part program transfers. World-wide links can be set up via the Internet making remote diagnosis, maintenance and online training even more seamless and efficient. Because the integrated Ethernet interface does not use a public operating system, it is practically 'hacker-free' and immune to viruses, providing a safe and worry free connection to business networks.
Contributing to additional productivity gains,
Accessing CNC functions on a PC is an ideal testing or learning environment with lower development and training costs than on a machine. NCGuide provides a safe environment to optimize programs on the PC and keeps the machine in the shop in production. OEMs can move fluidly between development and design. Ladder development and troubleshooting can be done as they test cycles via NCGuide. In addition, once a system is on location, end-users can build confidence and shorten learning curves for newer team members as the tools emulate the CNC exactly. Conventional G-code programming, including canned cycles and custom macros, and
