M-400 ATC Model Descriptions
    M-400 ATC Full-featured Mill Control

     Centroid's full-featured M-400 ATC mill control comes standard 
     with 3 servomotors (sized to fit your machine tool application)
     and is upgradeable to 4-Axis for a rotary table or an additional 
     linear axis. The M-400 ATC includes an integrated jog panel to 
     simplify your workspace. Centroid CNC controls are built with a
     standard high speed PC and DSP secondary processor. 
     The crystal-clear 15" LCD display reduces eye strain during 
     programming or running a job. The M-400 ATC handles
     The inputs and outputs needed to process automatic tool
     changes. PLC I/O for spindle control and orient are also pre-
     programmed. Machines in Motion will smooth over all the 
     details to provide you with a turnkey installation in just days.


 
M-400 ATC Standard Features
    Advanced Features found standard on each control

     Smart Search allows mid program interrupt. Then restart anywhere in the program. 
     High Speed Machining for 3D surfaces by providing maximum accel/decel. 
     Advanced Color Graphics to view parts on screen (visual dry run) before running the job. 
     Programming errors are presented on screen in plain english prior to cutting your part.
     Conversational programming software & a Fanuc G-code text editor are standard. 
     Canned cycles for drilling, milling, pocketing, and thread milling are built in.
     Large operator's display screen. Centroid's high resolution, non glare, 
     color LCD screen displays: tool position (DRO) at all times. On-screen values for spindle RPM, 
     cutting feedrate, and a parts counter with timer. While viewing a program graphically, 
     you can distinguish between rapid moves, feedrate moves, and cutter comp moves. 


 
    Intercon: Conversational Programming

     Enter part programs directly from the
     dimensions on your blueprint. Easy "fill in
     the blank" menus generate industry 
     standard G-Code programs automatically 
     on your shop floor. Centroid's Teach Mode 
     also easily creates programs from existing 
     parts. 
     Off-line programming Centroid's
     conversational programming is available in
     an optional off-line (Windows friendly) format. 
     Program your parts with ease from the 
     comfort of your PC while your machine
     continues to produce.

Automatic Threadmilling and 
Canned Cycles

Cut threads on your part from the push 
of a button. Use canned cycles to make 
everyday jobs a snap. Choose bolt hole 
patterns, facing, rectangular, circular, 
and irregular pockets with cleanout. Use
repeat to duplicate whole parts, make a 
matrix of holes, or repeat a contour to 
depth with just a few key strokes. Mirror,
rotate, and scale your part right at the
control.
 

   2 and 3D Tool Path Graphics

    See graphics as you work, even for partially 
    completed programs. Compare your work to 
    the blueprint with the touch of a button then get
    back to your programming.

High Speed Machining

Use high speed machining for 3D 
surfaces, cutting EDM electrodes, 
and artistic shapes. Complex 3D 
CAD/CAM or engraving programs 
can be run at high speeds without 
hesitation. A high throughput block rate 
combined with 2000 block Accel/Decel 
look ahead allows fast cuts while holding 
tight tolerances.
 



                      Fast Part Set Up

     Setup parts in seconds. On screen "how-to"
     graphics and menu selections make operating 
     a Centroid CNC control as simple as it could
     possibly be. 

     Using the optional probing feature will further 
     reduce your part setup time and increase your 
     overall accuracy!


 
M-Series Optional Features

 
  Digitizing 

Copy and cut 3D parts with Centroid's Digitizing. Simple,
accurate, and everything you need in one package. No extra
computer is needed. Digitizing automatically generates and
stores the part program on the controls hard drive. Cut the part immediately or export the data file to your off-line CAD/CAM
system for editing. You can also process your digitized part file
through Centroid's included "Mold Magic" software. Mold Magic
will produce auto-roughing pass program files or use it to reverse
image the part creating a mold from a plug or vice versa. 
No CAD/CAM is needed. When purchased from Machines in 
Motion this terrific software is included at no additional charge
with your purchase of Centroid's digitizing package.


 

          Automatic Tool Setter

          Centroid's automatic tool setter makes measuring tool length
          offsets accurate and quick. Press one button to measure your
          entire ATC carousel. On screen prompts guide you through the
          process with simple push button operations.
 

 


                                        Rigid Tapping

  Precision spindle speed and Z-axis control allows the use of solid tool
  holders with your tap. Includes deep hole cycles with peck tapping.
 
 
 

                                       Network Communications

  Connect your Centroid control to a network via our RJ-45 ethernet
  interface. This standard feature allows program files to be transferred
  to and from memory with ease, leaving your machine to do the work 
  while you program from an off-line PC.
 

                   4th Axis Rotary or Linear Axis

Centroid's optional 4th axis can either be a rotary or a linear axis.
This true 4th axis moves simultaneously with any other axis (full 4th
axis interpolated motion) and can be easily programmed fro
Centroid's Intercon Conversational, G-codes, or CAD/CAM. 
Centroid also offers an extensive line of quality rotary tables. 
Why buy a plain indexer when you can have a full contouring 
controlled axis?

        Probing Cycles

          Find bore and boss centers, fixture offsets, and corners of
          vises fast, accurately, and from the push of a button. Whether
          establishing fixture offsets, defining part zero, or finding an
          edge, probing cycles can do it faster and with greater
          precision than simple indicators.


 


 
With Centroid's ATC series CNC control 
we can update even the most complex milling center.
