In the A-B world I did some of SLC-500 and Micrologix programming about 15-20 years ago and I applaud that you have been able to do interpolated motion with a PLC. That is far beyond anything I worked on.

    In addition to motion control, any modern CNC will incorporate an integral, full featured, PLC that the machine builder writes the ladder for. Operation of all the machine peripherals like tool changer, multi gear heads, workpiece loading/unloading are all the responsibility of the machine builder's ladder.
    I'm DEFINITELY going to get a CNC mill at some point...but until then I will be making due with the resources that I have. CompactLogix processors with RSLogix5000 has built in motion control functionality which makes it much easier to program motion control with a fiber optic SERCOS interface and Kinetix 6000 modules. Much easier to use that what you were using 15 years ago I am sure. Thanks again!

    That must be true-because you said it?? Fanuc, Mitsubishi (who are the rulers of processing), Siemens, Okuma, errr Haas. Must be waaay behind, why would those companies even have a vested interest in Motion Control?
