Infinite Possibilities

High productivity, usability and flexibility delivered by breakthrough performance. The next-generation CNC M800/M80 Series empowers the manufacturing industry with unlimited possibilities and the capability to create innovative value.

CNC Dedicated CPU

The first CNC dedicated CPU

Leading the way in today’s industrial globalization, the innovative products of Mitsubishi Electric continue to exceed the expectations of users around the world. The outstanding performance of our CNC lineup consistently wins praise from users for their high levels of productivity, intuitive usability, and superior functionality. However, to develop the new M800/M80 Series, we went back to the drawing board and compleTely reexamined our cutting-edge control technologies. The result is a breakthrough in the control of high-speed, high-precision machining.

A leap in processing performance

Pursuit of a dedicated CNC CPU began with design validation on an unprecedented scale as well as high-precision simulations to verify processing performance. Achieving a leap in processing performance demanded the integration of innovative technologies beyond optimizing processor manufacturing processes. Overcoming numerous hurdles and maximizing the potential of the processor, we succeeded in producing a CNC-dedicated CPU that achieves unprecedented high-speed processing performance.

A new chapter in CNC development

The story of the new M800/M80 Series began with conventional development to produce incremental evolutionary improvements. But our goal was a revolutionary leap in CNC performance. Our project team determined that the only way to significantly boost processing performance and totally satisfy user demands would be the creation of a CPU optimized for CNC control. This insight inspired Mitsubishi Electric’s first-ever attempt to develop a CNC-dedicated CPU and opened a new chapter in CNC development.


Functions & Design

Incorporating the CNC-dedicated CPU in the new series not only results in phenomenal processing speed, but also reduces the number of required parts, leading to fewer possibilities of failure and increasing product quality. Equipped with Mitsubishi Electric’s first-ever CNC-dedicated CPU, the long-awaited M800/M80 Series is the fruit of an original development process and the sum of our latest technologies. With the utmost confidence, we are proud to introduce the M800/M80 Series and invite customers to experience performance of the future today.

SSS4G

High-speed, high-accuracy, high-quality cutting through SSS-4G control

M800/M80 Series offers SSS 4th-generation (SSS-4G) control, enabling high-speed, high-accuracy, high-quality machining. SSS-4G control provides features that are effective in reducing tact time, including optimal acceleration/deceleration suited to each axis’ characteristics. In addition, SSS-4G is capable of reducing machine vibration during high-speed cutting.

SSS-4G control allows for greater cutting accuracy in the same length of time, or shorter cutting time with the same degree of accuracy when compared to our previous models.

Field Network Compatibility

Connect to peripheral equipment and devices conforming to a range of field networks including CC-Link®, PROFIBUS® DP, and EtherNet/IP™.

Enhanced tool management screen

The CNC provides new tool management screen, where you can gather and manage tool-related information with greater convenience. A wide range of setting items such as tool name and tool ID are readily available. You can read or write tool data or add custom data via ladder or machining program.

Improved milling features using a tool spindle

High-speed high-accuracy control features accumulated originally for machining centers are now available in lathe system. Fine milling can be implemented at high speeds on a lathe. This CNC enables a servo motor, instead of a spindle, to act as a tool spindle. Any of the servo control axes driven by multi-hybrid drive can be used as a tool spindle. This contributes to the downsizing of machine tools.

High productivity and high quality are our primary focus

CNC-dedicated CPU is incorporated in the M800/M80 Series, providing significantly improved short segment processing capability. The benefits are not limited to improvements in basic performance alone. The Tolerance Control function enables operators to achieve high-quality surfaces simply by specifying the desired dimensional accuracy. This feature takes machining to a whole new level.

M800/M80 Series brings out the full potential of machine tools

M800/M80 Series provides new features that can maximize the full potential of machine tools, including: Variable-acceleration pre-interpolation acceleration/deceleration provides optimized acceleration, with each axis’ characteristics fully exercised. For example, allowing a linear axis to accelerate irrespective of rotary axis responsiveness. “OMR-FF control” allows for optimal position loop gain adjustment suited to each axis, leading to smoother and more accurate cutting. Other than the above, this CNC has new functionality effective for higher productivity, including “Rapid traverse block override function” that helps reduce non-cutting time by overlapping feed blocks.

Multi-axis multi-part system control features help to reduce cycle time and maintain synchronization between part systems

M800/M80 Series provides “Spindle superimposition control, “a feature that enables simultaneous execution of turni ng and center tapping, although they need to be executed individually. These features are effective in eliminating idle time, resulting in a significant reduction in tact time. This CNC also offers features that maintain synchronization between part systems, which is required for automatic lathes, in particular. These enable operators to implement even more complex machining safely and securely.

Real-time tuning helps maintain machine stability by adjusting the control gain automatically

This function estimates the work inertia and changes the speed control gain or time constant automatically according to the estimation results to suppress mechanical vibration.

Significantly easier programming

Operators can set machining cycles easily in an interactive manner while monitoring the finished work shape. In addition to the input of normal shape data, you can also extract drawing elements from CAD data in DXF format, and set them as shape data, which makes programming easier. Programmed shape can be checked in 3D graphic check before machining to check for any program error.

NC Visualizer enables to visualize the operating status of machine tools easier.

To build the “Operation monitoring system”, install NC Visualizer, an operation monitoring application, to your server PC. NC Visualizer displays the machine tool’s status such as “operating”, “stopped”, “alarm”, and “power OFF” in a list, which helps operators to improve the productivity or to analyze the cause of alarms. In addition, the operators can monitor the operating status with an external PC/tablet PC via a Web browser.

plus
VNC server function enables the operator to remoTely monitor and operate the NC screen.

The NC screens can be displayed on an external PC/tablet PC. Operator can monitor the machine tool’s status and operate the NC screen without going to the factory floor, which helps to improve the operation efficiency. (The function is enabled on a non-Windows-based NC display. No external computer is required.)

Support for Automation

Supports increasing automation needs. Automation can be realized more easily by simple connection and control of the peripheral devices.

Renewed I/O units allow the control of a number of peripherals

I/O units have been redesigned. The renewed I/O communication method makes it possible to significantly increase the maximum number of contact points per channel, enabling a number of peripheral equipment and devices to be controlled by CNC alone.

plus
Built-in PLC makes it easier to control and manage peripheral equipment and units

Built-in PLC functionality for I/O control has been improved. This CNC supports Multi-project PLC, a feature that enables ladder logics for peripheral equipment to be managed separately from those for machine tools. This creates a more efficient environment for operators working together in developing and managing ladder logics.

plus
New feature capable of stopping peripheral equipment incorporated

M800/M80 Series has a feature called Machine Group-based Alarm Stop, which stops operation of individual machine groups if an alarm occurs when control is combined with the MDS-E/EM/EJ Series. This feature allows continuation of machining even when an alarm occurs on a loader, magazine or other peripheral equipment.
