Control Offers More for Milling

The ACU-RITE MILLPWRG2 control, an easy-to-operate CNC for vertical knee and bed mills, is now available with an optional AMIG2, offering users the ability to use common interfaces as well as control the host machine tool's spindle.

The ACU-RITE MILLPWRG2 control is equipped with full 3-D contouring capabilities and is available as a complete retrofit package for 2- or 3-axis knee or bed mills or on a new mill from a machine tool builder. "It continues to provide machinists the convenience of straightforward 2-1/2-axis conversational shop floor programming as well as powerful calculators, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual calculations or learning complicated programs," said a company spokesperson. Users can import .DXF or G-code directly into MILLPWR.

The compact AMIG2 is available in two configurations:

  • The AMIG2 Standard has an I/O that can be used for various purposes, such as machine guards, limit switches, automatic oiler and AMI program step. The AMI program step allows the programmer to specify the outputs to be turned on or off, or pulsed for a specific duration. This can be used to control external devices, such as an indexer.

The AMIG2 Standard can also be used with an inverter-controlled spindle. The spindle control console is required for an inverter-controlled spindle.

  • The AMIG2 Deluxe includes everything in the Standard configuration plus the ability to control the spindle and coolant pump using M-functions for controlling direction (forward or reverse) and turning the spindle off.

ACU-RITE maintains its operator-friendly design concept by offering a sturdy operator console on the MILLPWRG2 that features a 12.1" flat panel, color LCD display, a color-coded, well-organized keypad, USB and remote stop/go pendant as standard equipment.

ACU-RITE brand products are distributed in the US by HEIDENHAIN Corporation.
