Control solution for CNC milling machines
NUMmill features a conversation style user interface and the computer numerical control (CNC) hardware and software provides a fully scalable control system and is supplied as a complete ‘off-the-shelf’ package. NUMmill is designed for CNC milling machine manufacturers and control retrofitters. It offers a suite of canned cycles, ranging from simple center drilling, boring and threading to pocket cycles and complex profile milling cycles. All with 3D simulation for pre-process verification. The package is suitable for a wide range of precision milling applications in markets as diverse as metal cutting, woodworking, plastic, and high precision machining.
NUMmill is typically configured with 3 or 4 linear axes and a single rotary axis, though it easily scales to suit any size and type of milling machine application. The NUMmill software features a graphical user interface (GUI), which employs an interactive, conversational style dialog to radically simplify machine operation. In fact, it is so simple to use that end-users can operate machines without any prior knowledge of ISO code programming techniques. The NUMmill system also provides measurement and probing cycles, to help users meet precision and quality targets, as well as full 3D simulation with collision monitoring for pre-process verification.
