The FMG-B1224 is equipped with dual-ballscrew and drive system, 40HP spindle motor, high-efficiency moving column and is a CNC precision profile grinding machine that the aerospace industry among others will put to use in upcoming machining lines.
By combining the traveling column’s rigidity with the machine’s SMART iControl, the FMG-B1224 high-precision grinder delivers flexibility and high rigidity no other machine can currently match. Axial movements are programmable in increments of 0.001 mm (0.0001") with little effort.
These are the standards required by the medical, automotive, mining, semiconductor, aerospace and job shop industries in order to meet current and future market needs and pave the way to factory automation.
Chevalier achieved greater precision by placing the high waist traveling column on the same level as the spindle, creating a solid, and high rigidity machine structure that minimizes vibration, movement, and displacement.
Our grinding machines are designed to be user friendly with our exclusive PC-based SMART iControl featuring conversational programming. Combined with TaskLink, it allows operators without an engineering degree, to create their own programs for generating complex grinding tasks in a single cycle.
Chevalier's SMART iControl features powerful computing force that enhances the HMI (Human Machine Interface) for greater precision. Combining the SMART iControl with data analysis from network connectivity allows managers to improve the production process and increase output.
Chevalier's iMCS with iBOX
Falcon Machine Tools Co., Ltd. has launched iMachine Communications System™ (iMCS) software that enables users to avoid downtime and a loss of productivity.
"Our clients are able to connect to iBOX on Chevalier’s machines via our iMCS software at any time for performance data, which includes anticipating potential issues and preventing stoppages,” says Edward Chang, R&D Director of FALCON.
Efficiency is no longer about a machine’s uptime but how the entire production line works as a whole. Chevalier’s iMCS reporting enables remote machine monitoring, alarm history, maintenance, data analysis and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
The ability of remote monitoring and service of the machines from anywhere eliminates direct physical contact during inspection, ensuring minimum downtime. Addressing the critical issue of costly huge loss downtime of machines, Chevalier has integrated iMCS software into our CNC machines to identify and report logs in productivity on a 24/7 basis. Instantaneous communication from a machine allows the operator to make fast modifications, resulting in a highly efficient and profitable machine.
iMCS software is user friendly and specifically designed for an end-user’s analytic needs. Smartphone applications will provide access to the monitoring status of the machine regardless of the end-user’s location. This level of monitoring fosters a greater understanding of production assessment and leads to streamlining and maintaining operations for higher productivity and profits.
