FANUC UK has expanded its general purpose 0i CNC series, launching the Oi-f Plus.
It builds on the Oi-f series, which has sold over 1.3m units. The latest addition delivers improved functionality and flexibility for operators.
FANUC told RoboPro Magazine that one of the defining features of the new Oi-f Plus CNC is the inclusion of iHMI, FANUC’s innovative user interface, which has been designed with maximum usability in mind. Intuitive icons, high-visibility designs, and animated features ensure that complex machine operations can be programmed with relative ease.
Incorporating many of the benefits of FANUC’s 30iB CNC, which is designed for highly-complex, multi-axis machinery, the iHMI interface makes it straightforward for users to access a host of sophisticated programs and functionalities via the Oi-f Plus.
These include two new advanced functions: Fine Surface Technology and Fast Cycle Time. Fine Surface Technology uses CNC and servo technologies to improve the surface quality of finished parts, at high speeds. Path errors caused by rounding can be reduced thanks to High Precision Program Command, while Smooth Tolerance+ Control reduces mechanical shock to further improve the quality of the machined surface.
Andrew Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Manager at FANUC UK, said: “Following the overwhelming success of the Oi-f series, we have responded to market demand and released an updated version which incorporates many of the advanced functions of our more sophisticated CNC portfolio.
“The result is the Oi-f Plus, which combines the flexibility of its predecessor with new, highly advanced functions that deliver higher quality surface finishes and much shorter cycle times. Ultimately, the innate usability of the FANUC Oi-f Plus CNC ensures it is the ideal, ready-to-use solution for a wide range of control applications.”
