Control 2.0 - Operator panels with many new features
Source: WFL

One of the most important elements of a MILLTURN has now been given a new look.

However, not only has the appearance been updated, but also the internal components. One of the many aspects that determine the performance of machining centres is the potential of the control system. The IPC 477E Industrial Flat Panels are ideally suited for use as industrial monitors and boast fast response times for instantaneous screen updates. The MILLTURNs now come with control systems featuring an innovative multi-touchscreen version with 24-inch widescreen front panel in 16:9 format, as well as full HD resolution (1920 x 1080).

Another special characteristic is the fact that the display can be divided and various programmes can be displayed on multiple sub-sites. This allows functions such as iControl process monitoring, graphics, programs, statistics and real-time data to be displayed in parallel. All of this results in more effective work.

The CrashGuard, CrashGuard Studio and Millturn PRO programs can be displayed in the header bar in a clearly structured way. The window below this is used to display information on axis loads, tools, the CrashGuard Viewer, axis movements in real time and much more. This provides operators with a large number of options for monitoring their manufacturing process.

The ergonomic solutions are also perfectly implemented in the new operator panel and offer operators many benefits. The more streamlined overall design means that the panel can be rotated 105 degrees around the vertical axis and the angle can be adjusted by 15 degrees. Space is also provided for special equipment such as displays or control units.

The new operator panel is not only faster, but also more ergonomic, modern and clearly laid out. Moreover, it is rotatable and adjustable in height and therefore provides even better ergonomics. These attributes ensure the best working conditions for operators.

  • 24“ multi-touchscreen display (1920×1080 resolution)
