June 13, 2016 — at IMTS, NUM will be demonstrating an exciting new development in CNC hardware and software technology that brings simple conversational style programming to CNC milling machines.
This will be the first public showing of the new NUMmill control solution and is likely to be of special interest to CNC milling machine manufacturers and control retrofitters. Available as a fully scalable control system, it is suitable for a wide range of precision milling applications in markets as diverse as metal cutting, woodworking, plastic, and high precision machining.
NUMmill provides a complete ‘off-the-shelf’ solution and offers an extensive suite of canned cycles, ranging from simple centre drilling, boring and threading through to pocket cycles and complex profile milling cycles. All with 3D simulation for pre-process verification.
NUM will also be showing a number of its latest generation CNC products at IMTS. These include new additions to its renowned NUMgear portfolio of CNC gear production solutions, such as a highly flexible electronic gearbox function that produces superb accuracy at extreme cutting speeds, a new conversational style user interface for cylindrical and surface grinding – with 3D simulation – and the latest edition of the company’s MTConnect interface which simplifies the integration of CNC machine tools with third party manufacturing software.
NUM's booth – E-4837 – is located in the East Building at McCormick Place.
