Integrated CNC controller with HMI functions
The M700V series by Mitsubishi Electric is an integrated CNC designed for metal-cutting, forming, plastics, and woodworking applications.
Mitsubishi Electric has introduced the multi-axis M700V Series of computer numerical controllers. The M700VS is a stand-alone, compact, integrated controller with a built-in display screen for HMI functions, while the M700VW model operates on a Microsoft Windows platform for PC-based control. The M700V CNC comes in two models and both feature a high-speed servo network.
Other advances in the M700V Series over its predecessor include improvements to the basic CNC functions, graphic performance and built-in PLC; 66% reduction in power consumption on the M700VS model; and a higher level of custom functions on the Microsoft Windows XPe-based M700VW.
Designed for a range of metal-cutting, forming, plastics and woodworking applications, the M700V CNC features simple HMI screens to facilitate navigation and operation, including a menu customization function, pop-up screens and a guidance function. A 64-bit RISC CPU and a proprietary LSI power the CNCs.
Key advances of the M700V Series CNCs include:
- Optimum machine response control for drive system speed and accuracy
- Nanometer control and processing for ultra-precision, advanced machining
- Adaptive notch filter control to monitor and prevent repeated fluctuations caused by mechanical wear
- Smooth surface control to suppress vibrations and maintain the desired speed
- 5-axis machining control for proper positioning of the tool center point

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
