The system offers an extensive suite of canned cycles, ranging from simple center drilling, boring and threading to pocket cycles and complex profile milling cycles, all with 3D simulation for pre-process verification. The software also pro- vides functions for material removal of basic pockets; these can be defined as circular, oblong, reticular and square. It can also provide measure- ment and probing cycles to help users meet precision and quality targets. The conversational user interface is said to enable users to operate machines without any prior knowledge of ISO code programming tech- niques. NUMmill is supplied as a complete, ready- to-run package that includes the Flexium+ CNC system, sof t ware, and a 19" touch-sensitive machine control panel. The system is also equipped with NUM's MTConnect interface, which simplifies the integration of CNC machine tools with third- party manufacturing software.
