NORCO's IPC applies in CNC machine tools

Original Source:Administrator|Time:2010-08-24


The development of computer technology accelerates the technology of computer numerical control machine tool (cnc machine tool) towards to intelligent, high reliable and high accuracy direction. The realization of cnc machine tool reduces the probability of products’ poor quality due to different levels operation performed by workers. Therefore more and more cnc machine tool utilizes industrial computer as front terminal on account of the credible performance, easy operation, handy maintenance and low cost of industrial computer. Industrial computer combines input/output device of cnc machine tool to the controlling center, resolve human machine interface, programming and network communication problems.

System Overview:


Computer numerical control machine tools consist of input/output device, digital controller, PLC, servomechanism, detection device and host of machine tool. When cnc machine tool adopts Norco’s embedded industrial computer, workers just need to place order via man-machine interface. The control system processed order, forming all kinds of control information and sending to servomechanism. As a result, machine tool can operate under control.




System Requirement:


1.     Reliability

Reliability plays a significant role in measuring product quality because low reliability will cause loss on work stoppage and maintenance expense. Let me give you an example. If we take MTBF (the average malfunction time from the breakdown to the next breakdown) to represent cnc machine tool’s reliability, the requirement of fault free should be above 99% according to three shifts within twenty-four hours. MTBF will need to be more than 4500 hours. MTBF is supposed to consider the failure rate of each component. CNC machine tool as the essential part, its MTBF should be over 4500 hours. With such strict requirement, common business PC cannot provide corresponding service. Yet Norco’s embedded industrial computer can perfectly meet cnc machine tool’s demands.


2.     Intelligent

Intelligent cnc machine tool can reach the best performance under adjustments, and it can complete self- detection, detection of other machines, and fault alarm.


3.     Easy Operation

The realization of cnc machine tool reduces the probability of products’ poor quality due to different levels operation performed by workers. A good operation interface will facilitate operator control machines easily. Currently, most cnc machine tool adopts industrial computer with input/output and control function to decrease errors caused by operators.
