Application Software for Class 5 SmartMotor

Moog Animatics AniCNC Software for SmartMotor

Moog Animatics, a division of Moog Inc., has announced the release of its new AniCNC application software exclusively for use with the Class 5 SmartMotor. When coupled with the Class 5 SmartMotor, the AniCNC software solution provides a graphical human-machine interface (HMI), G-code editing and runtime environment and other built-in features to tackle milling, routing, machining, shaping and related projects. An offline mode allows preview and refinement of G-code tool paths without being attached to the SmartMotor.

Additional features of AniCNC include:

  • A simple, intuitive user interface, optimized for touchscreen use
  • Advanced code writer and shape writer for creating complex patterns
  • DXF file import to produce scalable G-code for quick resizing and/or arraying
  • G-code export to DXF format for efficient use in CAD or illustration software
  • G-code editing and runtime environment with real-time viewing of the tool path
  • TrueType font to G-code converter allows text scaling/framing
  • Built-in functions for point-and-click programming of common metalwork shapes
  • Nested-array code building for easy duplication of parts in sheet material
  • Dynamic jog and teach to rapidly record points to the G-code program
  • In-path jog correction allows temporary move adjustment and then resets and continues.

The SmartMotor is a programmable servo motor system that is integrated with a motor, an encoder, an amplifier, a controller, RS-232/RS-485 and other optional communications and IOs. The motor provides a smaller footprint, a lower total cost and simplicity to reduce machine development and build time.
