Acu-rite 3500i
Easy to Learn, Intuitive to Operate
At the heart of the Acu-Rite 3500i's versatility is its touch screen interface and the innovative software driving the interface. Menus and function keys are integrated into the borders of the high resolution, 12.1" XGA screen. Floating numeric keypads are easily dragged to the operator's preferred position.
Innovation Coarse Tool Support
When a coarse tool is defined, the control knows what that tool can cut, removes that material first and leaves the remaining material for the fine tool. (In the image above, the PURPLE shows the coarse tool path and the GREEN indicates the fine tool path.)
Tool Life Management Support
The 3500i gives the operator control of tool life; a run time for each tool can be specified, and once the run time has been reached, the control will call the specified replacement tool. All this is controlled by the tool page.
