used FABTECH to provide a first look at its new Sinumerik MC (motion
control) controller, a universal, open, industrial PC-based CNC system.
It features optimized motion control, high-performance automation and
integrated Windows 10 operating system, making it an ideal control for
fabrication and specialty equipment, including laser and waterjet
cutters, other metal forming and fabricating equipment, and even
conventional basic grinding machines and additive manufacturing
WEBER PT is the perfect deburring machine for lasered, punched and
nibbled parts. It handles deburring, rounding, descaling and surface
grinding of thin sheets and heavy plates. Up to four grinding stations
allow for all machining variations. Improved accessibility for
maintenance; modular design; and optional simultaneous top/bottom
machining are just some of the advantages of the WEBER PT.

ABB RobotStudio, which ABB Robotics showcased at FABTECH, allows
programming to be performed on a computer without disturbing existing
production. With the computer-based programming system, integrators can
communicate better with customers and involve them closely through all
phases of robot integration, from design through commissioning,
according to ABB officials, resulting in more quickly designed systems
and higher productivity.
