Boosting CNC productivity

Boosting CNC productivity Mikron Machining Technologies has improved its already successful multi-step concept linear CNC transfer machine for use in precision manufacturing. In this latest version, the modular system achieves up to 20% higher productivity than before. To do this, Mikron made use of a complete control and drive package from Bosch Rexroth, built around the IndraMotion MTX high speed control system. With this it is possible to operate up to 64 axes on one control with twelve mutually independent CNC channels. Connection with the integrated IEC 61131-3 IndraLogic PLC with multi-tasking capability on powerful hardware guarantees a close link between the CNC and the PLC and, at the same time, boosts performance. A further key to higher productivity is the use of intelligent Rexroth IndraDrive servo drives with the company’s extensive range of motors, and direct drive technology. In addition, the IndraDrive servos feature integrated safety functions for safe stopping and safe movements which are certified in accordance with EN 954-1, category 3.
