Fanuc adds 5-axis to CNC training module
- July 5, 2020
The Complex Milling Extension option combines a CNC guide and simulation software that can now operate as one of the three main 5-axis mill kinematics.
It also includes training on a 3-axis mill and a 2-axis lathe. The 5-axis machining simulation allows users to learn how to setup and operate three common 5-axis milling machines: mixed type, tool type and table type.
Fanuc says it is committed to bridging the training gap with new or existing workers. Since 5-axis machining involves more complex machine setups, the simulation software teaches users how to take advantage of the unique options and features.
Additionally, the 5-axis machining simulation software allows operators to experiment with and prove out the machine setup and/or part program before modifying the actual machine.
