November 10, 2017 – Mitsubishi Electric Automation introduces the M80W computer numerical controller, the latest in its M8 Series CNCs. The M80W features a touch screen Windows-based display that is separate from the control unit. Incorporating the latest operating system and slim personal computer, the M80W includes two expansion slots for 32GB SD cards, allowing OEMs and end users to add up to 64GB more memory for greater flexibility.
The M80W CNC was designed for the automotive and machine tool industries, and is especially useful for applications such as turning centers, machining centers, lathes and mills.
Features of the M80W include:
- CNC-dedicated CPU
- Super smooth surface (SSS) control, reducing machine vibration during high-speed cutting
- User-level data protection allowing for multiple levels of permissions based on operator’s role
- Field network compatibility with CC-Link, PROFIBUS DP, and Ethernet/IP for connectivity to peripheral equipment and devices
The M80W CNC includes a 19" vertical display with a split multiple window that can be customized by arranging a keyboard, operation panel, document viewer or other applications. In addition, real-time servo & spindle tuning helps maintain machine stability by adjusting the control gains automatically.
