Controlling of the Machine

  • all functions of the machine, except tool clamping and unclamping, are controlled via the control panel, which consists of a keyboard, a switch panel and an LCD monitor
  • the tool clamping and unclamping is controlled by switches on the headstock
  • the control panel is completed with a portable control panel (handwheel), which duplicates some basic functions of the control of the machine
  • the control panel is swivellingly connected to the operator platform or on the wall inside the operator housing (depending on design)
  • the control system allows manual, semiautomatic and fully automatic modes
  • the standard communication interface allows a connection with the Ethernet for easy administration and distribution of technological programs, machine operating monitoring, diagnostics or servicing of the control system, etc.

Machine design can be customized.
