New Automation Technology For Fanuc And Amada Lasers And Cnc Press Brakes

Jan 9th 2015 at 5:25 AM

Thanks to the availability of more flexible laser technology with Ethernet field bus options and newly supported guided simulation software for Amada or Fanuc Laserfabricators can now use these high speed laser controls for increased productivity and streamlined efficiency. Integration of CNC Press Brake and robots to cell controllers has also made the fabricators able to better manage their operations across different equipments those are controlled by various systems. As a result of this and also due to the utilization of newly standardized field bus architecture it is now possible to streamline both system integration and data sharing. At the same time fabricators do also enjoy improved overall productivity with better cost efficiency, reduced setup requirement, superior manufacturing intelligence and also a safe work environment.

These high-speed Fanuc or Amada laser controls those come with an embedded Ethernet interface now also allow integration of the CNC system with the company network for high speed transfer of part programs and data collection. At the same time now it is also possible to establish world-wide links for seamless and efficient remote diagnosis and maintenance services. Another great advantage is that as no public operating system is required for integration of this Ethernet interface it is also completely immune to viruses and hacking attacks that ensure a completely safe and trouble free connection for the business networks. The new simulation software compatible with Fanuc Laser controls also contribute to additional gains in productivity by providing a part programming environment for realistic operations at a fraction of its initial cost. At the same time it also makes it easy for the operators, designers and maintenance personnel to work with better development efficiency with uninterrupted production for increased productivity.

Some of the most important features of the new simulation software used in CNC Press Brakes and laser controls are:

· Automatic creation of robotic programs for calibrating the simulation with the real robot system

· Generation of visual warning for any possible detected collision during the robot simulation process

· Reduced system and accelerated system startup with application software packages

· Easy and user friendly interface allowing powerful programming

· Ability of offline testing cell layout and Cycle Time

· High speed system integration and reduction in setup cost with offline programming

· Graphical and AVI video output results display of robot programs for quick and comprehensive system operation evaluation

The new laser cutting system developed for Amada laser and CNC press brakes now provide the fabricators the flexibility of cutting both thick and thin metals by changing the configuration of the laser beam electronically. The newly introduced fiber laser system has now eliminated the need of manually changing the cutting lens and allows high speed cutting of the material. This new technology has not only improved speed of cutting and cut quality but also allowed the fabricators to produce tight corners and small holes in thick metals. Most laser cutting systems now available in the market now include an automation system.
