Basic G-code understanding is very important for expensive sophisticated numerical-controlled manufacturing machinery and a simplified control panel is a wonderful feature to have.
Pictured is one of the new style digital control panels employing a simplified graphical interface that this visitor finds quite impressive.
It also impressed me a lot when I saw it while attending the recent SME 2016 Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show held in Place Bonaventure in downtown Montreal.
What really won me over was how the attractive color graphics contribute in providing quick information for the machine operator. This is a well designed simplified graphical interface perhaps, one of the best that I saw at the show.
This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”UNDERSTANDING”.
