Robot Controller Guides Setup and Programming FANUC's R-30iB Plus robot controller features an iPendant with an enhanced screen resolution and processing capability. The user interface, iHMI, has an icon-based screen, which has intuitive guides for setup and programming, the company says. It also includes tutorials from the main home page, which has a design common to FANUC CNCs, enabling easier use of robots. According to the company, easier usage also facilitates system setup and maintenance to improve efficiency. The iPendant can also revert to the previous version. Processing performance for both hardware and software has been improved in the R-30iB Plus, and the signal processing cycle has been shortened, the company says. The vision function of R- 30iB Plus has a camera interface, which increases four times the speed for transmitting images from the camera, together with a simplified cable configuration. :: FANUC America Corp. 800-326-8287, PRODUCTS 42 PRODUCTION MACHINING :: DECEMBER 2017 CNC Moving Head Series Drills Holes of Different Depths Absolute Machine Tools Inc.'s Yougar YGS CNC moving head has an automatic guide changer (AGC) that enables automatic drilling of holes of different depths and long, unattended operations. According to the company, the machine offers up to eight fully programmable axes, facilitating processing of complex manufacturing applications. Rotating brass or copper tubular electrodes from 0.1 mm-3.0 mm (0.004"-0.118") diameter perform drilling, while a high pressure pump pro- vides adjustable through-spindle flushing from 0-750 psi to maximize performance with any electrode size. A 17" touchscreen PC display enables operators to manu- ally enter drilling positions or import them from a DXF file or wire EDM program file stored on an external source. USB or TCP/IP data transfer interfaces are standard. The built-in sup- ply module for the dielectric system saves space and simplifies maintenance. Dielectric fluid is filtered from 3 microns to 20 microns via a standard replaceable paper filter cartridge while an ION quality sensor and mixed-bed ION exchange resin moni- tors clean water to maintain proper conductivity. Maximum workpiece weight is up to 1,100 pounds and the machines support diverse rotary table manufacturers, tilting head (±45 degrees), and multi-lingual operations, the company says. :: Absolute Machine Tools Inc. 800-852-7825 MW80GT TWIN SPINDLE CNC TURNING CENTER MT100 TWIN OPPOSING SPINDLE CNC TURNING CENTER MW120GEX TWIN SPINDLE CNC TURNING CENTER Time-tested technology and turnkey solutions designed to provide ultimate productivity for the modern manufacturer.
