New Operator Control for Gundrilling Machine

Every new Eldorado gundrilling machine now features an updated operator control panel. "While still using a PC-based system featuring Beckhoff controls, both the hardware and software have been improved with job shop operators in mind," said a Kays spokesperson.

The display screen has been enlarged to 7", which allows for larger graphics and easier-to-read menus. Touchscreen capability has been added to improve menu navigation. Large pushbuttons have replaced the keypad, making the control panel more durable and easier to use in a shop floor setting.

The control also features CNC G-code programming capability, which allows the customer to write their own gundrilling programs. "This improves machine flexibility with options like variable feeds & speeds, drilling peck cycles, dwell times and many other basic G-Code capabilities," said the spokesperson. "A simple USB connection for an external keyboard makes it easy to quickly type new G-code programs while standing at the machine."

For shops with older Eldorado machines, the new control is available as a retrofit package. Eldorado gundrilling machines are designed and manufactured in the USA by Kays Engineering.
