Vibration monitoring of the spindle

The use of high-speed spindles requires a limitation of the maximum spindle load in order to avoid bearing damage or a severe reduction in service life. Optio­nally, the spindles can be equipped with vibration sensors. A function in the control can be activated that automa­ti­cally reduces the feed and, if necessary, the RPM of the spindle in the event of high vibra­tions. In addition, a coloured graphic illus­tration of the vibra­tions along the milling path is possible. As a result, any areas in the milling path with high vibra­tions can easily be identified and can safely be avoided in recurring machining processes by adapting the CAM programming.

Röders is partner of the umati initiative of the German machine tool association VDW (umati = universal machine tool interface). The umati interface enables a standar­dized data transfer to the machines of numerous suppliers. umati is an essential step towards industry 4.0.

Control Characteristics

Control technology optimised for HSC

Outstanding charac­te­ristics of the Röders RMS6 control:

  • Block processing time < 0.1 ms
  • Look ahead > 10,000 blocks
  • Conti­nuously improved spline interpolation

Newest Control Versions

Performance increase through control updates

Newest control versions also for older machines(from year of manufacture 1995) available at low cost with the special Röders update service

> Higher precision, better surface quality and signi­fi­cantly shorter machining times

Speed Optimisation

Automatic minimisation of vibrations

Automatic spindle speed optimi­sation by the machine within a user-selec­table range in order to minimise vibra­tions and achieve the highest possible surface quality; patent pending

Tangential Transitions

Tangential transitions

Patented function to avoid offsets in transi­tional areas if several different tools are used for machining

  • Automatic modifi­cation of the machining programs for tangential transitions



  • Simple individual programing of postpro­cessors for all CAD/CAM-systems with the help of the Röders postpro­cessor handbook
  • Standard postpro­cessors available at Röders
  • Complete output of all NC-parameters by the CAM-system
    Programing at the machine control not necessary

  • Processing of ISO-NC-programs (G‑code) or Heidenhain®#-NC-programs (with limited scope) possible
  • very short familia­rization time
  • Changeover between Röders control and Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain or others very easy for operators, because the familiar NC-programing language does not change
  • Also a mixed use of ISO-NC-commands and Heidenhain®#-NC-commands is allowed

Optimised use of tools

Numerous functions for optimised use of tools

  • Sister tools
  • Wear criteria
  • Maximum tool life travel
  • Measu­rement strategies
  • Geometry identi­fi­cation and test
  • etc.

Röders GmbH Steuerung RACECUT

Further control functions

  • RACECUT® – Perfor­mance boost in machining 3D contours
  • 32 kHz drive control frequency and an optimized tool path planning in the control lead to signi­ficant reduc­tions of machining times, up to 20% while surface quality and precision remain equal
  • Since the energy consumption of the machine is relatively constant regardless of the selected dynamics, the energy saving is of the same dimension
