FANUC's 0i-D CNC Offers Newly Enhanced Features and Functionality

FANUC Factory Automation America (FANUC FA America) has announced newly enhanced features and functionality for the Series 0i and 0i-Mate - MODEL D CNCs. The 0i-D features Nano CNC resolution for high precision and has a compact design with reliability utilizing limited cabling and easy maintenance, the company said. This control is suitable for many machining applications and is available in both milling (0i-MD) and turning (0i-TD) versions.

The newly enhanced features to the 0i-D include:

  • Max total controlled axis increased to eight axes (milling model) and 11 axes (turning model).
  • Al Contour Control II (milling model) uses a high-speed processor allowing high-speed machining of complex free form parts which are programmed in continuous small block segments.
  • Nano smoothing (milling model) smooths surfaces by converting small block segment programs into smooth NURB surfaces in real time.
  • Jerk control (milling model) for smooth acceleration with less machine jerking.
  • Enhanced tool management (milling and turning models).
  • Retraction for rigid tapping (turning model) for cycle time reduction.

The 0i-Mate-D also has upgraded features including:

  • Two max spindles (turning model).
  • Spindle control with servo motor (turning model) for use with live tooling for turning centers.
  • Nano interpolation.
  • Axis control by PMC allows for programmed axis by control MTD Logic.
  • Grinding function for canned cycles.
  • NC Guide/NC Guide Pro provides useful graphical programming guidance for parts programming at the CNC controller.
