Communication Systems & Equipment

CNCs offer predictive maintenance tools for fans and motors.

With preventative maintenance tools for motors and fans, Series 30i/31i/32i-MODEL B CNCs enable maintenance staff to pre-plan servicing of machine during scheduled downtime rather than when machine has failed. FANUC amplifiers address predictive motor failures by checking resistance of windings. By monitoring speed of each cooling fan that is in CNC and amplifier, users can estimate when fan will...
