MachMotion and CNC Retrofit News
Nothing is more frustrating than when you're in front of a CNC machine and searching through menus or multiple keystrokes to setup and run what should be a simple job. As we work to continually improve controls at MachMotion, our goal is to create something simple, with single-screen navigation, that is easy to learn and use.view more»
When your CNC plasma control is starting to hold business back, it's time to replace it. With MachMotion, you not only get an updated control with standard features like Torch Height Control, integrated part/shape library, auto sheet rip-cut, and dxf import, you get it at a much affordable price than the "big guys."view more»
We had a customer request for a program that could nest a number of user defined washers. Based on the variables settings, the size, spacing, and number of parts can change. It even includes options to set kerf, lead-in/out size and pierce delay/height for use on a water jet. Find out how we used parametric programming to save time.view more»
I noticed a fellow machinist (Sam @ Venom Defense) had some trouble this past weekend. He was hoping to get some production done over the weekend, but ran into a big problem.
The high-speed machining (H HSM Feature Expired SM) trial feature had expired. The feature code costs $2600, but to get the necessary feature code he had to wait until Monday morning. Slow machining all weekend. (Btw, HSM is standard on MachMotion VMC controls, no code needed.)
So what's high speed machining?view more»
You see, many might only consider retrofitting once the control has died. What if you could replace an out-dated, underperforming control and make more money?
There are many benefits to retrofitting a good machine. Read more to find out.
