Due to high speed and multi-tasking capability, when machine interference occurs, the expense required to repair a machine may be considerable. As a result, operators tend to move machines slowly to avoid machine collisions. To solve this problem, Yamazaki Mazak has developed the INTELLIGENT SAFETY SHIELD function. By using this function, when an operator manually moves the machine axes for setup or tool measurement, a synchronized 3D model is shown on the CNC display for checking machine interference. If any machine interference occurs, the machine motion immediately stops. Thanks to this function, a considerable reduction of machine setup time is realized.
Since machine interference is prevented, considerable reduction of machine setup time is realized.
