Patented 5-Axis Platter Technology

KME CNC 5-axis platters are built right into a precision ground, rigid meehanite cast iron tombstones that are designed specifically for Horizontal Machining Centers.

These units completely integrate with control systems so you do not need to program the control unit. You can program your work directly from your machine g-code controls. Mill 5+ sides on four different platters with a single setup for four completely machined parts!

Wireless Technology for More Flexibility

Patented Wireless tombstones comes with no wires, cables or any type of connections. Getting the tombstones in and out of your machines is now easy as 1-2-3, in addition to allowing change-over or pallet pool applications to run lights-out.

This new platform allows immense flexibility, i.e. pallet pool, cell, or stand alone applications. The system is an RF address-based system that works with a Transmitter/Receiver Module (TRM, hereafter) connection platform.

Each tombstone is defined by its specific address therefore when entering the machine envelope, it makes itself available to the TRM. At that time, the TRM engages that specific tombstone and that specific tombstone only.

An individual TRM is capable of recognizing multiple discrete addresses allowing it to control tombstones Axis.

That are in a pallet-racking system as they become available in the machining envelope. The wireless system is driven by power cells that are rated to last up to 8 hours of machining time.

KME CNC configured the system through a unique power management scheme that features the ability of shutting off desired drives through
g-code programming, which ultimately helps maximize machining time overall.

Combined with the ease of loading and unloading the power cells, this wireless system is unmistakably designed to serve time/cost-conscious plants!
