NC ASSIST - CNC Program Editor
NC Assist is a template-driven CNC program editor that was developed to aid engineers in producing CNC programs.
This software was designed to offer users a dynamic, all-inclusive and user friendly programming platform that is customized to fit our Star machines. The NC Assist interface allows users to generate programs rapidly and easily with minimum user input. Simply clicking on the applicable template, the CNC code is automatically generated. Users will enter the necessary data and the NC Assist will compile that information into code that is easy to understand and in a format that suits the selected Star machine.
The Star SX-38 Type A/B, a 12-axis compact Swiss-style machine with slant-bed construction, maximizes productivity for difficult-to-machine materials up to 42mm diameter. The capability to keep 80 tools resident with high horsepower motors means heavy metal removal rates and flexibility. B-axis surfacing with up to 135 degree travel handles up to 0.5″ diameter tooling. This high-functioning, large-diameter model – with gang-type and turret-type tool posts – serves the precision machining requirements demanded by the medical, automotive, and aviation industries.
The SL-10 is a state-of-the-art design developed to suit small diameter machining requirements offering efficient machining capabilities within a compact footprint.
This condensed advanced technology meets current needs through the new design developments. The flexibility of a 5-spindle cartridge-type cross drilling unit combined with the 6-spindle back working unit with Y-axis control offers a variety of multi-processing functions. Simultaneously, the dynamic main spindle and the faster power-driven tools are well suited for machining smaller diameter components.
The new multi-tasking model is designed for production of components from 0.25” to 1.500” diameter! This new SR-38J model can use a large library of tooling for the manufacturing of very complex parts which have turning, drilling and a variety of secondary operations. In addition, the sub-spindle is also equipped with fixed and live tooling used for finishing back-end of the part overlapping with main operation. The ease of switching between guide bush and non-guide bush mode will facilitate machining of applicable components for best optimization and control of bar remnant. The main and sub spindles use a built-in motor for high indexing accuracy and a rotary cylinder will ensure a stable gripping force when opening and closing the main spindle collet. The SR-38J is designed with flexibility to meet numerous industries and their complex machining needs.
