What are the New Features for Mach4 CNC Software?

ChinaCNCzone 2017-07-05 10:39:35
Compared with Mach3 CNC Software, Mach4 CNC Software is new.What are new?
Today, let ChinaCNCzone team share with you as below:

1,Mach4 Motion

Mach4 can control CNC machinery(include mini CNC machinery), PLC equipment, and robotics. The core is a full featured ‘brain’ that ensures all input and output devices are coordinated with motion.

– All Motion control calculated in the core = less dependence on hardware and associated software driver.

– Motion Device Drivers (Plug Ins) have standard format = common level of functionality between components, less complexity, easier and less costly to troubleshoot and support.

2.Motion Control at the Core:

All motion control calculations are completed in the core. Mach4’s core adapts to the speed (frequency) of the motion controllers attached. Mach3 software relied on the hardware plug-in software and complex buffering schemes to ensure accuracy and coordinated motion. This redesign has several advantages:

– Up to 100x faster response from button click to machine action.

Machine hold or speed changes happen as quickly as GUI buttons are selected on the screen.
– Improved Backlash Control & more accurate screw mapping = less jitter and more accurate cuts

Higher quality manual pulse generator (MPG) = very smooth jogging and positioning without lag time.

3.Some New Features

– Type C (Fanuc) cutter compensation standard in Mach4.
More accurate tool path compensation for different size tools
Improved Anti-gouging
– Synchronous Motion of up to 6 completely separate coordinate systems (instances) at the same time.
Multiple heads, machines and processes to produce complex parts.
– Asynchronous Motion (out of band axis) to control uncoordinated motion.
Pre-change tool changers
Robotic Loaders
Torch height manual compensation control
– Multi-Axis Work Shifts and Head shifts to offset cutting tool path for multiple work piece holders and fixtures.- Remote Control of machinery (IPC)
Control or track CNC equipment from a remote location
Greatly expanded troubleshooting
Track the operation of equipment
Link information between other computer applications
Excel, etc…
– New Dynamic tool path display
View, rotate, pan, and scale the tool path quickly and easily to ensure G-code is creating the path you expect.
– Improved screen layout and easily customizable screen modification tool.
Change buttons, displays, and indicators easily, quickly, and on the fly!
