CamMaster, a manufacturer of CNC cutting solutions, has just released its SmartCore CNC Automation System to power its next generation of CNC routers. Designed in partnership with industrial automation manufacturer Yaskawa, SmartCore encompasses a CNC controller and motion components in a fully integrated platform that ultimately boosts production while being user-friendly, according to the company.
“SmartCore constitutes a complete re-engineering of our CNC systems, and it has revolutionized the way our CNC routers perform. It incorporates all the industry’s latest technology and is built for the most demanding applications,” says sales director Cody Smith. “It provides, by far, the best performance and technological advancements in its class.”
The system runs on fast industrial ethernet technology, allowing speeds of up to 100 Mbit, and comes with a completely new operator-friendly machine interface called Compass with intuitive and easy to use screens, simplified part setup, full-featured file editing and tool path simulation.
Smith adds that using the same manufacturer for the hardware and control switch allows for performance levels to be consistent.
“Consequently, the CNC’s configuration is more automated and can receive and manage a lot more information coming from all the machine’s axes and any connected modules. This all-encompassing system brings unmatched speed, accuracy and functionality to the CNC machine,” he says.
CamMaster CNCs are designed for shops of all sizes doing panel processing, cabinet making, architectural millwork and other 2D and 3D CNC woodworking projects.
Machines are available in multiple sizes from 5’ x 5’ to 6’ x 20’. They start at $35,995.
