ACS Motion Control released a software suite designed to reduce the need for user interface development and maintenance. Designed for high precision laser processing equipment, SPiiPlusSPC (smart processing commander) software provides machine control. The software integrates, manages, and coordinates the motion control system, laser, and other machine peripherals (vision, galvo, etc.). Leveraging the SPiiPlus EtherCAT based motion control product line, SPiiPlusSPC software offers control for more complex applications developed by system integrators and OEMs. The SPiiPlusSPC software features an interface environment for manual and automated machine operation. Suitable for a range of laser processing applications, the application ready SPiiPlusSPC system allows users to create motion/process recipes from one or multiple imported CAD files (DXF, DWG, Gerber, NC Drill, STL, etc.) and/or the built-in geometric functions. Suitable for any PC running Windows 7/8/10, XP with SP3, the SPiiPlusSPC software is optimized to require minimal Windows resources. Customization options are available through ACS and it’s partners, or via user created plugins. Applications include 3D engraving, laser micro-processing, polymer processing, laser drilling, PCB drilling, laser cutting, PCB stencil manufacturing, glass and polymer cutting, stent manufacturing, laser additive manufacturing, and more.
