LMX linear motors comprise a metal track with multiple embedded rare earth magnets, and a coil assembly supported by a customer-supplied guideway. A key feature of the motors is that they are designed to operate with a comparatively large air gap of 1 mm, to reduce the impact of mounting tolerances on performance characteristics. For most machine…
FlexiumPro’s Real-Time Kernel (RTK) hosts an embedded Codesys V3 PLC and a CNC unit. Based on a multi-core ARM processor, the RTK is implemented using advanced system-on-chip (SoC) technology. The tightly integrated nature of this technology helps to significantly reduce the component count, resulting in improved system reliability and compactness…
NUM’s basic RTCP function, invoked by ISO code G151, offers a number of user-specified variants. The function can be activated with an inclined coordinate system or after a positioning move. In either case, the CNC system automatically calculates the mechanical offset to ensure that the tool center point is always in touch with the defined…
Known as NUMcad, this drawing software runs directly from the machine’s operator panel and also under Windows on any standard PC. Its user interface mimics that of many popular CAD packages and is highly intuitive, making it ideal for people with minimal design experience. NUMcad is suitable for both design origination and design modification.
NUM’s power skiving option provides the enabling technology for CNC machine tool companies to address a key market opportunity in the nascent compact gearbox manufacturing industry. It is now possible to create an entirely new generation of gear production automation that offers combined hobbing and skiving capabilities on a single machine.
NUMai software can be utilized as soon as a machine tool has been commissioned and is ready to start production, or on a machine that is already being employed for production purposes. The software initially acquires all pertinent operating data over a period of time, typically a number of hours, while the machine is being used for normal…
For automation products such as machine tools, a digital twin is a virtual model that uses simulation, real-time data acquisition/analysis and machine learning techniques to allow full evaluation of a machine’s dynamic performance before constructing a physical prototype. The same technology can also be employed for customer presentations, virtual…
NUM has now added non-circular grinding functionality to its NUMgrind cylindrical grinding software, which forms an application-specific element of the company’s renowned Flexium+ CNC platform. It is fully compatible with other Flexium software, from release 4.1.20.00 onwards.
CNC specialist NUM has significantly expanded its portfolio of motors for machine tool applications by launching a range of high-performance brushless torque motors. Employing innovative optimized magnetics, NUM’s new TMX series direct-drive motors have an extremely low cogging torque. They are ideal for applications that demand very smooth and…
NUM has launched a major new release of its NUMROTO tool grinding software. Offering numerous additional features and enhancements, Version 4.0 of the software is designed to increase the productivity of precision machine tools without the need for additional hardware.
NUM’s latest-generation CNC systems are helping the Star Cutter Co. to maintain its position as a world leader in cutting tool machines. Star Cutter’s new 5-axis tool and cutter grinding machine – the NTG 6RL – is based entirely on NUM’s Flexium+ CNC platform, and fully automates the high-speed production and reconditioning of complex cutting…
NUM has announced a high performance CNC solution for gear production machines that fully automates threaded wheel grinding.
Palmary Machinery cites NUMgrind software as a key product differentiator.
NUM AG is helping Taiwanese machine tool company Chien Wei Precise Technology Co. Ltd. develop CNC grinding machines for manufacturing specialized gears used in robotics applications. Based on NUM’s Flexium+ 68 CNC platform, Chien Wei’s machines are designed to speed the production of both involute and cycloidal profile precision gears.
The US cutting tool manufacturer McQuade Industries Inc. has implemented a CNC upgrade program for its roster of 5-axis insert grinders, and the upgrades shaved more than ten minutes per part off the production time of complex geometry cutting tools.
