Schaumburg, IL (July 2015) The ACU-RITE MILLPWR G2 control is today’s easiest-to-operate CNC for vertical knee and bed mills and is now available with an optional AMIG2 console offering users the ability to use common interfaces as well as control its host machine tool’s spindle.
This compact AMIG2 electrical cabinet is now available in two configurations:
- The AMIG2 Standard has I/O that can be used for various purposes. For example: Machine guards, Limit switches, Automatic oiler, AMI Program Step. The AMI Program Step allows the programmer to specify the outputs to be turned ON or OFF, or PULSED for a certain duration. This can be used to control external devices such as an indexer.
The AMIG2 Standard can also be used with an inverter-controlled spindle. The spindle control console is required for inverter-controlled spindle. The console provides the standard + 10 Vdc and a spindle override knob.
- The AMIG2 Deluxe includes everything in the Standard configuration plus the ability to control spindle and coolant pump using M-Functions for controlling direction (forward or reverse) and turning the spindle off.
The ACU-RITE MILLPWR G2 control is equipped with full 3-D contouring capabilities and is available as a complete retrofit package for two- or three-axis knee or bed mills or on a new mill from a machine builder. It continues to provide machinists the convenience of straightforward 2-1/2-axis conversational shop floor programming as well as powerful calculators, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual calculations and to learn complicated programs.
ACU-RITE maintains its operator-friendly design concept by offering a sturdy operator console on the MILLPWR G2 that features a 12.1-inch flat panel, color LCD display; a color-coded well-organized keypad; USB and remote stop/go pendant which are all standard equipment.
