ACS Motion Control Posted 12/07/2016
BLOOMINGTON, MN -- ACS Motion Control releases a software suite that significantly reduces or eliminates the need for user interface development and maintenance. Designed for high precision laser processing equipment, SPiiPlusSPC (smart processing commander) software provides complete machine control. The software easily integrates, manages, and coordinates the motion control system, laser, and other machine peripherals (vision, galvo, etc.). Leveraging the sophisticated SPiiPlus EtherCAT® based motion control product line, SPiiPlusSPC software offers dynamic control for more complex applications developed by system integrators and OEMs.
The SPiiPlusSPC software features an easy-to-use, comprehensive interface environment for manual and automated machine operation. Suitable for a wide range of laser processing applications, the application ready SPiiPlusSPC system allows users to create motion/process recipes from one or multiple imported CAD files (DXF, DWG, Gerber, NC Drill, STL, etc.) and/or the built-in geometric functions.
"The SPiiPlusSPC standard software version is a fully functional out-of-the-box solution for complete machine control. The software significantly reduces or eliminates the need for user interface development and maintenance, saving significant programming time and cost,” said Jason Goerges, Product Marketing Manager. "The sophisticated laser control options are synchronized with single and multi-axis motion via our LCMV2 laser control module and drives. This delivers the most accurate laser micro-machining control system on the market."
Suitable for any PC running Windows 7/8/10, XP with SP3, the SPiiPlusSPC software is optimized to require minimal Windows resources. Customization options are available through ACS and it's partners, or via user created plugins.
Applications include 3D engraving, laser micro-processing, polymer processing, laser drilling, PCB drilling, laser cutting, PCB stencil manufacturing, glass and polymer cutting, stent manufacturing, laser additive manufacturing, and more.
