FF 500 with CNC control! Precision and repeat accuracy for individual parts and small series.

* With recirculating ball spindles on all three axis and three powerful
* Stepper motors for driving the milling table and milling head.
* Large traverse paths: X-axis: approx. 310mm, Y-axis: approx.
* 100mm, Z-axis: approx. 220mm.
* Super-stable column with dovetail slideway.
* Including user-friendly software. Runs under WINDOWS®

Precise work with high repeat accuracy. A wide range of uses for single part and small series production. Machining of steel and non-ferrous metals is possible in all dimensions thanks to CNC control of 3 tool axes. This also applies to larger workpieces.Axes X, Y and Z with recirculating ball spindles (no backlash) and powerful stepper motors. Apart from this, the mechanical construction is almost identical with the MICRO Miller FF 500 available as a manually operated machine. A solid, flat-milled compound table in steel with 3 continuous T slots for size 8 standard T-nuts. The base is constructed in vibration-damping cast steel. A stable column with dovetail slideway. Swivel-mounted milling head with powerful, quiet and free running condenser motor. Poly V-belt drive for 6 spindle speeds. Additional sleeve feed (30mm) using drilling lever with scale ring (1 graduation line = 1mm). This can be clamped using a tommy screw when CNC milling. Cutting tool fixing using a chuck. Complete with CNC control unit, CNC programme software, all connecting cables, 6 , 8 , 10 and 12mm chucks and detailed manual. Quiet, good-looking and multifunctional. For repeat accuracies of up to 0.05mm. A machining centre for milling, drilling and countersinking which has yet to be equalled. Made in Europe!

Brief description of software and hardware:
The software is harmonized with mechanics, motors and the control unit of the CNC machine, thus offering the optimum performance.

The CNC control unit controls the step motors of the machine. The PC software provides the machine with the geometry information for travel of the tools (via RS 232 interface). This means that the control unit is the interface between software and the mechanics of the machine.

Powerful micro processors and accordingly dimensioned step motors and phases ensure that the motors always provide enough power for any machining processes. Two freely usable output relays in the casing of the control unit provide facilities for control of additional functions, e.g. a working lamp. Including connection cables with suitable plugs and built-in power supply for connection to 220 – 240V.

Simple creation of work piece geometry

The CAD window is displayed when the programme starts. The work piece contour is created in the familiar WINDOWS® environment. Numerous auxiliary aids help during programme operation, which supports both coordinate entry (absolute and relative) in addition to mouse use. Read-in of existing files in standard file formats (e.g. .dxf or .hpgl) is possible. Technology information is allocated to every drawing element. This makes, for example, different processing speeds and manual tool replacement possible.

Automatic generation of CAM data

The finished drawing of the tool is converted, by a mouse click, into the instruction set for the machine. So, machining can be started immediately. The instruction set generated in this way is in accordance with DIN/ISO 66025 and can be manually edited and exported. Conversely, the system also permits importing or complete self writing of data sets.

CNC simulation

If requested, the travel distances of the tool are simulated in the graphic window. In this way, faults in the programming can be recognised in time.

Manual work

The handwheels are replaced with the step motors of the CNC machine. Nevertheless, manual machining is possible with the help of cursor buttons, since the step motors can be operated manually.

Software installation

The PC software is supplied on a CD ROM. The problem-free installation is effected automatically under Windows®.
