XMC 4.0 Policut – Hardware Solutions

At the base of the XMC 4.0 Policut hardware there is a powerful axis control with integrated PLC based on a high performance RISC processor at 264 Mhz interfaced to high speed non volatile RAM. The motion control section, which manages up to 6 interpolated axes, is able to execute trajectories obtaining high movement performances. The calculation power of this axis control makes it suitable for the management of complex machines for all sectors of Industrial Automation. The cyclical PLC section and the sequential CNC section combined with the rich and powerful set of instructions, allow to develop extremely flexible applications updated to the current concepts of Industry 4.0.

Cutting strategies

Cutting strategies

SIMPLE MACH CUT

The simple match function allows you to process simple cuts such as circles and rectangles, without importing any CAD machining files from outside.

2D CUT

2D CUT to perform two-dimensional cuts starting from the DXF file. In a few clicks the software will process the project by calculating the connection points, entrances, junctions and exits.

LATH AND PLATE CUTTING

The 2D profile function with plate or lathe allows you to cut 3D and symmetrical objects, combining a two-dimensional profile on the lathe or machine plate. This strategy allows you to create 3D solids, without having to design complicated files.

SLICED MACH CUT

The sliced ​​mach function allows you to create a sliced ​​cutting path without any CAD file import. In just a few clicks you will go from the raw block to the finished panels of the desired thickness.

INDEPENDENT AXIS CUT

Management of the X1Y1 axes on the right side and X2Y2 on the left side in an absolutely independent way. This cutting mode will allow you to create tapered shapes with a draft angle, letters in projection and inclined cuts on non-regular geometries.

3D CUT

It will be possible to import a 3D model in STL format and process it directly in combination with the turntable. The software will automatically divide the solid into a number of established sections and then generate the cutting projections that will be compiled in sequence.

Design process

CAD

Computer-Aided Design (CAD) is the use of computers to aid in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve communications through documentation and to create a database for manufacturing.

99

CAM

Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) is the use of software and computer-controlled machinery to automate a manufacturing process. Based on that definition, you need three components for a CAM system to function: Software that tells a machine how to make a product by generating toolpaths.

99

CNC

CNC means Computer Numerical Control. This means a computer converts the design produced by Computer Aided Design software (CAD), into numbers. The numbers can be considered to be the coordinates of a graph and they control the movement of the cutter.
