Bed Mill Control Package

HEIDENHAIN offers the ACU-RITE brand MILLPWRG2 control for bed mills with AC motors.

"Combining the latest technology with the finest qualities in traditional machining, this bed mill control package offers many useful machining features, including full 3D contouring capabilities," said a company spokesperson. It is available as a complete retrofit package for 2-axis or 3-axis machines or already installed on many new machines.

"With its conversational 2-1/2 axis shop floor programming and built-in calculators, the MILLPWRG2 continues to provide convenience to machinists by eliminating time-consuming calculations and the need to learn complicated programs," said the spokesperson. In addition, it has the ability to run G-code files from CAD/CAM programs, which gives users full 3D contouring capability. "Consequently, it maximizes productivity for machinists of all levels, from the less experienced operator to the most seasoned veteran," added the spokesperson.

The MILLPWRG2 control features an operator console that includes a 12.1" flat panel color LCD display, a color-coded well-organized keypad and USB and Ethernet as all standard equipment. This new offering is specifically designed for bed mill applications that are CNC ready (meaning the machine has the ball screws and motor mounts already installed), and includes powerful AC motors and drives, a remote hand wheel as standard and spindle control override. It also allows machine function capabilities to be integrated, when the machine is equipped for spindle drive inverter, coolant pumps, indexers, oilers, misters etc.
