Boring Bar Mill Retrofit

This 6-axis boring bar machine retrofit was done for an outdated B&W machine. The controls Upgrade included a complete 840D Sinumerik CNC, fully functional with three Remote OPs, two independent tool changers, a handwheel and over 500 ET200s IO points.

Due to high production and very little downtime on the machine, majority of the PLC and NC sequences were simulated in a pre-commissioning period, so that the machine can be turned over to production with the least amount of plant floor commissioning time.
