Description

Current EDM uses Siemens industrial controllers in our entire machine line. Siemens provides the computing power and flexibility needed for the most difficult applications. Their superior build quality and worldwide support ensure many years of reliable service.

Overview

Siemens 840 DsL – The Siemens 840 DSL is our most powerful controller designed for production applications with multiple levels of program and operation security, and drilling depth control technology. Program memory is virtually limitless using inexpensive USB memory drives.

Siemens OP8T – The Siemens OP8T is a powerful yet affordable machine controller. It shares many of the same features as the 840 Dsl but with a smaller display. Program memory is virtually limitless using inexpensive USB memory drives.

Siemens MP177 – The touch screen Siemens MP177 is used to control our manual machines. The control panel displays X, Y and Z axis coordinates and allows for easy programming of machining parameters, drilling depth and retract height. With the standard M-Function interface cable, automatic drilling can be achieved with a part loader or rotary table.
