Improved CPU

The complete new design of our CNCs incorporating CPU’s with improved and expandable features (such as higher speed of processing, more memory capacity, etc.) in all models, provides support for more powerful and AGILE control algorithms and reinforces an architecture of innovative and flexible system.

We have completely revitalized our CNCs and created a very compact hardware platform.

We have also taken into account all aspects of assembly. It is now easier, safer and more efficient: the power buses (24 V DC BUS) are protected by an easy-to-open cover plate.

The DC BUS connections for Servo Drives are made using easy-to-install plates included as accessories

All the drives and power supplies have been redesigned using state-of-the-art electronic components, saving substantial space for both the new power circuits and the control electronics.

This means more power with smaller modules, which, in turn, means reduced space requirements inside a machine’s electrical cabinet.

02. Ethernet

New Sercos III Servo Bus

Back to simplicity
Easier-to-use Industrial Ethernet-based connections

Fagor Automation introduces a new servo communication bus between the CNC and the drive modules. The Industrial Ethernet-based Sercos III bus means- speeds of up to 100 MBd can be achieved.

With ultra-fast communication bus, the CNC can receive and manage a lot more information sent by the servo and spindle axes and centralize the information management. Consequently, the system’s configuration is even more automated, since it detects any connected modules (auto detection), such as servo drives, motors, feedback devices like linear encoders etc.

This centralization of information also allows for:

• Remote version updates including new feature enhancements for connected modules.

• Improvements to diagnostics and the access to all the element variables of the system using the built-in CNC Oscilloscope, from the servo drives to feedback and motor variables.

• Faster integration and better management of functions that depend on more than one axis (Tandem, Synchronism etc.).

And all of this has been achieved with a significant simplification of the cabling system, with replacement of optical fiber with easier to install STP Ethernet cables (Shielded Twisted Pair).

03. Full Digital

We talk digital…

…and we can speak with everyone. Serial encoder-ready

Feedback inputs are developed for real-time SSI, EnDat and FeeDat serial communication protocols. This represents a totally digital system, from command to all the way to feedback, since all the involved modules communicate via digital protocols, hence resulting in huge improvements in the control data flow and a greater immunity to noise, etc.

These feedback inputs are standardized for all the elements connected to the control bus, both for the CNC and the servo drives, and includes regenerative power supplies when used. The improved new connectors are smaller, more secure and compact.

04. Even smaller

Both for CNCs…

…to create an extremely compact platform

Reduction of around 45% to 60% (depending on model) in size compared to the previous CNC platform.

And for drive modules...

...with single and double modules
to save cabinet space

Now, a unique servo drive module is capable of controlling 2 axes.

  • Servo drives rated from 7 to 275 A, with maximum current increase in some sizes, and with the option of having double axes with a single 77 mm module, with 7+7/12+12/21+21 A.
  • Only 77 mm wide, for non-regenerative power supplies rated up to 45 kW.
  • Important reductions in size for regenerative sources, with 30 and 40 kW in only 155 mm and 60 and 80 kW in only233 mm.
  • Reduction to just 39 mm for some auxiliary modules.

05. Mechanically Compatible Central Unit

...for the entire family of CNCs

Provides maximum flexibility when designing the machine control panels. A wide variety of monitors and panels are available for any integrated CNC from the 8060/8065/8070 family.

As the central unit is MECHANICALLY COMPATIBLE for the whole CNC family, this control console can be similar for different machine types, regardless of the CNC model.

06. VESA mount

New installation system for modular CNC

When using the simple VESA mount adapter, a CNC can be connected directly to monitors of various sizes.

We have a new universally acceptable assembly arrangement to attach a modular CNC directly to a Fagor or a third-party monitor. This allows various new possibilities for machine manufacturers for their control cabinet design. This unique and new installation method provides an alternative to cabinet assembly. Its small size and a thickness of only 36.5 mm, means a very sleek control panel or cabinet
