Acu-Rite’s 3500i CNC control has been designed with operator-oriented enhancements that will facilitate an intuitive transition for customers to the next generation of control technology. Based on the Heidenhain NC kernel and processor technology, the control features a touchscreen operator interface.
 
This interface has allowed Acu-Rite to optimize program navigation, editing, creation and verification. Conversational programming is edited in plain machinist language and uses a set of canned cycles to aid in easy-to-understand, quick programming. Where additional versatility is needed, G-code programming is available via an on-screen keyboard and a G-code help editor.
 
The company has also developed a built-in 2½” diameter CAM system allowing the operator to complete complicated contours quickly and easily with minimal part data.
 
With new advanced features like CAM, coarse tool support and USB communication, the 3500i has set the new standard for the future of shop floor-friendly, powerful control technology. The control is available in both Kit (for knee mill applications) and OEM configurations.
