Fanuc's New Remote CNC Control

By Rich Christianson | Posted: 02/15/2013 8:56PM


Fanuc FA introduced its next generation of CNC controls at IMTS last November in Chicago.

Paul Webster, CNC engineering manager for Fanuc FA, quickly summarizes benefits of the Series 30i/31i/32i-MODEL B, which allows users to monitor their CNC machines remotely using pPads and other tablet devies. Webster says remote monitoring enhances the maintainability and production capabilities of a Fanuc CNC congtroll device.

In addition, the Series 30i/31i/32i-MODEL B CNC can act as a web server. CNC screens can be displayed on any device on a network; such as over wireless Ethernet to communicate with a tablet-type device. As a result, maintenance and production personnel can monitor all CNC equipment from across the shop in one location and on one device.
