SMTCL introduces new i5 CNC Control at IMTS 2016

CNC Control excels in performance and providing information to users  

Los Angeles, Sep 12, 2016 -- SMTCL-Americas will display it’s new i5 CNC Control at the 2016 IMTS exhibition  at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL from September 12 – 17, 2016.  SMTCL will be in Booth S-8245 in the Metal Cutting Pavilion in the South Hall.  

Although this i5 CNC Control will not be offered to customers in North America until 2017, it has been installed  on over 2000 machines in China.  In addition to bringing world-class performance and reliability to customers, the i5 is easy to use and brings a new level of information to organizations.  The control will be available on most of SMTCLs 300 models and can be used on 2,3,4 and 5-Axis machines. The i5 Control was named after the characteristics it brings to customers:  Intelligent, Internet, Integrate, Industry, and Information.   

The control is intelligent by making programming easier and more conversational.  The i5 Control features 3D color graphics for simulations as well as feature programming.  It also has full tool management and remote diagnostic capabilities to make machines more productive.   

The i5 control opens up the full power of the Internet to users by offering remote diagnostics and remote machine management for “lights out” operation.  Email and text messages from the machine can also communicate key information to manufacturers.  Apps are also available for both Android and IOS devices to make the control even more productive.

The i5 Control integrates with production systems and can seamlessly provide data to measure productivity and performance.  The control also easy integrates with robots, automation. measurement devices, and rotary tables.   
SMTCL’s i5 Control is also made for industry, as it is built on a reliable platform of industrial processors and electronics.  Based on the proven i-Port technology, the control is UL Certified and performs accurately and reliably in manufacturing environments.

The Information provided by the i5 Control is valuable to management by directly providing key information to finance, production, and sales.   The machine can directly provide information to production scheduling systems and full ERP systems.  

“The i5 Control will revolutionize manufacturing by its ease-of-use and its highly rated performance.”  Said Jerry McCarty, Chief Operating Officer of SMTCL.   “In addition, it will provide accurate information directly into manufacturing production systems which otherwise had to be entered manually by machine operators. The ability of the i5 Control to work in lights out operations will also make SMTCL machines more productive and less costly.”
