(07/06/2004) From 1996 we are developing the new CNC using a PC platform under Windows (CPU of the PC is used for all the matters related with the CNC).
Some people uses CPUs in parallel, inside the PC or connected via any Field Bus, which is the real CNC (we did so from 1986 till 1996).
Furthermore of CNC itself, any "Hard Real Time" application under MS Windows is not a trivial problem to solve, but... we made it!
It is a Low-cost system because of use of CAN-bus (CANopen protocol). CNC interpolates 8 axes in one millisecond (Tick=1) and only needs 2 CAN-bus channels for the 8 axes and 1 channel more for the remotes Input/Outputs.
Inside a single PC, up to 10 CNCs (multi-channel) can be executed at the same time (up to 80 axes with only 2 CAN-bus channels).
We are very near to the project termination and we are sure that new CNC will get expectacular performances in any type of machine (due to all tests done).
Keep you on-line please because the many advantages and very good prices you will get. And remember you will be able to download to test it by this line at no cost.
We look for a LASER machine manufacturer who wants to help us to test a "BETA" version. If you are interested, please contact us as soon as possible.
(07/06/2004) We can adapt (even re-design) our CNC to your requirements. Don't forget that we are, in fact, specialists in any "Hard Real Time" application.
