The pendant is shown without the standard bottom tray. The tray is provided with or without enhanced pendant purchase.
UNLEASH THE PRODUCTIVITY OF YOUR MACHINE
YOUR MACHINE IS CAPABLE OF SO MUCH MORE.
Eliminate these common bottlenecks:
DNC data starvation
Feed rate limitations due to limited block processing.
Machine banging resulting from poor ramp control.
Poor cutting performance at high speeds.
Long load times of large programs into memory using RS-232.
NO LEARNING CURVE. OPERATE YOUR MACHINE JUST AS YOU ALWAYS HAVE
FEEL RIGHT AT HOME
The 527F has a familiar look and feel that allows operators to use the 527F without training. Your machine can be put into service immediately after the 527F installation. The existing keyboard, jog wheel and selector switches are used which allows operators to use the same procedure to set up jobs as well as run/edit programs.
ENHANCE YOUR PENDANT
Add an optional pendant face to MP or 88HS machines. The pendant faces fit right into your existing pendant enclosure adding a variety of quick keys to improve operator efficiency during job set-up, program editing, and memory management. We can provide a complete pendant box for machines with CNC88 and 32MP version machines.
ADD A PC TO YOUR PENDANT
The 527F comes standard with a NUC computer that autoboots to Calmotion HMI software to display CNC information.
The 527F CNC continuously sends screen data to a PC connected USB dongle. The PC has no control capability and functions only as an HMI device.
Having a computer at the machine brings a host of productivity enhancement possibilities.
Generate CAD/CAM programs at the machine, mirror the 527F operation remotely via TeamViewer/Google remote desktop, check email, pull files from anywhere on the network then place them into the 527F memory, This is also a nice way to perform program simulation using the software of your choice.

BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
Precision Innovation in California was looking for ways to improve productivity. Their 6030 machine was making 11 complex parts a day and could not run faster due to machine banging and finish issues at high feed rates. Purchasing a new machine would have been cost prohibitive. Adding a 527F allowed the machine to run significantly faster, producing 18 parts a day with equal or better surface finish.
This opened up nearly 2 days of production each week to generate additional revenue or schedule a reduced work week.
* Performance gains such at this are typical of parts that require heavy CNC computation such as surfacing, advanced ramp control and look ahead.
Email us a typical part program for evaluation. We can estimate likely feed rate improvements.

The comparison images depicted here are closeups looking at one area of a Mercedes test cut performed on a 1997 Fadal 6030 VMC with a –5 CPU. Both parts were cut with the exact same machine, program, AC servo amplifiers and motors. Only the control cards from the legacy Fadal CNC 88HS were changed out with the Calmotion 527F cards.
PROGRAM & POSITIONING RESOLUTION
10X THE LEGACY
ADVANCED RAMP CONTROL
30X THE LEGACY
10.2X THE LEGACY
Each axis controller calculates position at 10X the resolution of the legacy control (microns). Additionally, an improved survey table accepts micron resolution to provide optimal ball screw compensation.
