Control Technology

PC-based control
  • Very simple user interface
  • USB interface standard
  • 21.5” TFT screen standard
  • NC-programs in ISO-format or Heidenhain®#-format (with limited scope), mixed code also possible
  • Compatible with INDUSTRY 4.0

Röders is partner of the umati initiative of the German machine tool association VDW (umati = universal machine tool interface). The umati interface enables a standardized data transfer to the machines of numerous suppliers. umati is an essential step towards industry 4.0.

Control technology optimised for HSC

Outstanding characteristics of the Röders RMS6 control:

  • Block processing time < 0.1 ms
  • Look ahead > 10,000 blocks
  • Continuously improved spline interpolation

Performance increase through control updates

Newest control versions also for older machines
(from year of manufacture 1995) available at low cost with
the special Röders update service

=> Higher precision, better surface quality and significantly shorter machining times

Automatic minimisation of vibrations

Automatic spindle speed optimisation by the machine within a user-selectable range in order to minimise vibrations and achieve the highest possible surface quality; patent pending

Tangential transitions

Patented function to avoid offsets in transitional areas if several different tools are used for machining

  • Automatic modification of the machining programs for tangential transitions

  • Simple individual programing of postprocessors for all CAD/CAM-systems with the help of the Röders postprocessor handbook
  • Standard postprocessors available at Röders
  • Complete output of all NC-parameters by the CAM-system
    => Programing at the machine control not necessary
  • Processing of ISO-NC-programs (G-code) or Heidenhain®#-NC-programs (with limited scope) possible
  • very short familiarization time
  • Changeover between Röders control and Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain or others very easy for operators, because the familiar NC-programing language does not change
  • Also a mixed use of ISO-NC-commands and Heidenhain®#-NC-commands is allowed
Optimised use of tools

Numerous functions for optimised use of tools

  • Sister tools
  • Wear criteria
  • Maximum tool life travel
  • Measurement strategies
  • Geometry identification and test
  • etc.

Further control functions
  • Simulation with 3D display of the workpiece
  • Cut-out function of milling programs for partial machining of workpieces
  • Very easy workshop programming
  • etc.
