How Does Machining Center Connect with Computer

CNC system of the machining center is often equipped with RS-232, CF card, DNC, Ethernet, and USB interface. How to connect the machining center with a computer depends on your CNC system and installation interface! If your program memory is relatively large, it is recommended to use DNC online transmission, which is generally used in the mold industry; if your program is relatively small, it is faster, convenient and practical to use CF card, which is mostly used for product CNC processing.


FANUC system machining center parameter setting: insert the CF card into the CF card slot on the left side of the screen (the position of each machine tool is different), switch the program protection key switch to "off", press the [offset setting] button, and then press the soft key [setting] under the screen to select the mode to MDI mode, and set the I / O channel to "4". The processing program CF card is transferred to NC: "EditMode" editing mode. Press "prog", select the right arrow soft key at the bottom of the screen and select 'card ". At this time, you can see the files on the CF card. Press the soft key" operate "at the bottom of the screen, and press the software" front "at the bottom of the screen, Input the program number (file number) to be transferred, press the soft key "set" at the bottom of the screen to input the program number, and finally press the soft key "EXEC" at the bottom of the screen to complete the program transfer. These operations are commonly used in the FANUC system. For details, you can refer to the operation manual of your machine tool. In a sense, the CF card is better than the transmission line, and the program is widely used. The data is relatively stable.
