Digital Control Increases Functionality and Speed

Fadal Machining Centers has introduced the 104/D, its new proprietary digital control with dramatically high-er CPU speed and Windows 2000 Professional-based operating system. In addition to its open architecture and high-speed CPU, the 104/D combines an extensive num-ber of software, hardware, interface and ergonomic improvements, as well as providing a platform for extraordinary innovation in the near future. The 104/D will be a standard feature of new Fadal VMC’s without an increase in price.

“The new digital control is backwards compatible to older Fadal VMC’s so existing Fadal part programs can be run on the new control. The only edits a user needs to make for decreasing part run times are matched increases in feed rate and spindle rpm to ensure proper chip load. The 104/D will also be upgradeable over the life of the machine,” said John Wenger, Director of Engineering, Fadal Machining Centers.

Beta testing in the field and at the Fadal manufacturing facility in Chatsworth, CA has demonstrated an increase of up to 10 times the cutting feed rate without deviating from part tolerances.
