EC: 0i-Model D CNC

Machine and embedded control - CNCs and board-level products: With over 200 standard features designed to increase productivity, FANUC's 0i-Model D CNC is reliable, efficient, user-friendly, and popular. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineer’s Choice finalist.


With over 200 standard features designed to increase productivity, FANUC's 0i-Model D CNC is reliable, efficient, user-friendly, and popular because: 

  1. 0i-Model D CNC. FANUC's 0i-Model D includes over 200 standard features designed to increase productivity and is the world's most popular and high value CNC that is reliable, efficient, innovative and user-friendly. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineer's Choice finalist.Axis control: Control of up to nine axes, up to four controlled simultaneously.

  2. Nanometer precision: Unique system-wide nanometer resolution precision provides a superior surface finish quality, minimizing the need for secondary operations.

  3. High functionality: Over 200 standard features are designed to increase productivity.

  4. Reduced cycle time: Advanced software functions reduce cycle time while enhancing part accuracy and extending machine life. These include: bell-shaped acc/dec, Al contour control, nano smoothing, and HRV3.

  5. High-speed machining for better quality parts, faster.

  6. User-friendly operation and programming: Existing part programs will run without modification. The 0i-Model D offers simple part programming and operation; operation and programming software is tailored to the appropriate application. User-friendly solutions (MANUAL GUIDE i, MANUAL GUIDE 0i, TURN MATE i, Powerful G-code editor) help to fully optimize the manufacturing cycle from part program generation through to production.

  7. Reliability: FANUC's continuous improvement culture ensures reliability. Statistically, a hardware fault occurs only once every 27 years of productive service. Additionally, FANUC has a 25-year part availability guarantee. Other features include: crash protection, prevention of operation errors, ease of maintenance, built-in backup, and automatic servo and spindle tuning.

  8. Connecting manufacturing to business securely and reliably through standard high-speed Ethernet interface for high-speed part program transfers and data collection. A USB port is also conveniently located at the operator display to provide practically unlimited storage for part programs, tool data, and parameters.
