Modern industrial environments incorporate an array of automated processes and machines. However, some companies have trouble finding ways to reliably control these new technologies. Sometimes the problem is not the personnel’s technical capabilities or the machines’ complexity, but the lack of a reliable and comprehensible controller.
CNC (computer numerical control) machines are one of the technologies that can really benefit from a high-performance controller. Some CNC motion control systems are not as efficient, reliable, and easy-to-use as CNC operators would like. Therefore, changing the controller of these machines for an advanced one can represent huge gains in productivity, quality and running times.
Human-machine interfaces (HMIs) is another technology that can see big gains from a reliable controller. A high-quality HMI makes processes easier to monitor and control. And with the increasing number of connected devices in industry 4.0 and industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications, having a modern HMI is mandatory.
Motion Tech Automation carries Rexroth’s IndraMotion MTX line of CNC control systems and Exor IIoT HMIs. The solutions from both brands adapt to almost any industrial application. Working with us can help your company speed up the research and decision-making process to apply these technologies and gain an edge over the competition.
Rexroth IndraMotion MTX
IndraMotion MTX micro
IndraMotion MTX micro is a powerful, compact, and low-cost solution for basic CNC applications. It offers 3-12 numerically controlled axes, a 2 ms IPO cycle time, 4-5 interpolating axes and 2 numerically controlled paths. Its small footprint makes it perfect for retrofitting old machines with new functionality. Preconfigured milling and turning programs are included. Other notable features include a 32-bit multi-core processor, an extensive technology-cycle library, multi-Ethernet capabilities and industry 4.0 connectivity, among others.
IndraMotion MTX standard, performance and advanced
For more complex applications, MTX standard, performance and advanced control systems are available. They offer 8-250 numerically controlled axes (2-32 for spindle functions), 0.25-1 ms IPO cycle times, 4-8 interpolating axes, and up to 60 numerically controlled paths. The broad range of specifications offered by these control systems make them ideal for almost any CNC application from grinding to complex material handling. Other notable features include a multi-core processor, multi-Ethernet capabilities and industry 4.0 connectivity.
