linear shoulders
•all cycles run as stand-alone programs - fast and easy
programming of a single program, which is integrated into a main
program or available as a series of any number of cycles
•quick data transfers for external programs via USB port, or optional
WLAN-connection Compatible and powerful
•easy adaptation to most CAD/CAM systems
• quick block processing of 450 NC blocks per second and 200 Look
Ahead sets ensure unprecedented fast and continuous program execution
•standard networking-capability - to create, manage and transfer
external programs - the GPlus will adapt to your structures
