BIMU - FAGOR AUTOMATIONLike in earlier editions and as a sample of the company’s presence on the Italian market, Fagor Automation was there with its own booth showing the wide range of products it offers for Machine Tool and Automation. It should be pointed out at this edition, that Fagor’s presence was even more widespread thanks to some “totems” showing the CNC 8065 installed in the booths of many of their important customers. Companies that have chosen Fagor products with which to equip their most demanding machines giving the chance to check out the advanced features of the CNC 8065 installed in their booth.

The Fagor booth showed the wide range of products they offer for machine tools: CNCs, digital drives, motors, DROs and feedback systems. Among which standing out:

  • Linear encoders with 10 nanometer resolution and digital interface.
  • Absolute encoders for various digital interfaces (Fanuc, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, DRIVE-CLiQ-Siemens).
  • New CNC concept, with the user in mind: CNC 8060 / CNC 8065.
    • The CNC 8060 was awarded a special mention in the National Award for Design and Innovation in Machine-tools and manufacturing technologies (Spain, June 2014).
    • The 8065 is a high-end CNC that with its 32 axes + spindles, 4 execution channels and 4 tool magazines can meet the requirements of any machine tool, even those of the most complex ones.

Demos on the CNC 8065

The demos running on the CNC 8065 attracted many visitors who could see first hand the performance of the latest CNC version: ProGTL3 language which thanks to its 5 G codes (G810, G811, G813, G820 , G821) and the new macros (e.g. G8736, 3D pocket defined by a plane profile and 10 section profiles) allows simple machine-level programming, with unmatched performance on the market.
