IndraMotion MTX performance

IndraMotion MTX performance

IndraMotion MTX performance, packaged in a special high-end industrial PC with matching operating features, is the cnc system solution of choice for demanding machine tools in harsh industrial environments. The controller delivers excellent performance and offers a wide range of technology functions for special requirements.

Up to 32 of the 64 axes available can be used for spindle functions. With up to 12 independent CNC channels you can implement the most exacting applications. A whole series of functions is available for performing complex interpolation, axis coupling, special kinematics, fast I/O coupling and much more.

IndraMotion MTX performance can be upgraded to handle future requirements. For example, you can add additional interfaces or fieldbus connections.
