Deckel NC Milling Machine Web Site

Subtitle

 

The first "modern" type Deckel NC machines were the FP3A, the FP4A and the FP41A (whereby the FP4A/41A is much rarer then the FP3A). The huge operator cabinets of the past are gone (now: huge electrical cabinets hidden in back of machine), and so are the huge tape readers. Now there is a monitor and keypads, and all in a "star treck"-like movable operator console

The FP3A is basically a mechanically conventional milling machine with a control attached to it. It is like an "Aktiv Digital" machine where no one has to pull a lever any more to engage an axis. There is only one servo feed motor that is engaged for the axis' as needed.

The FP4A and 41A machines already have all the mechanical features of the later FP NC series, but are still severely handicapped by a not very powerful control, which was limited to straight line interpolation, except for the rare 2301, which could do radii. It is a pitty to see these extremely well and elaborately built machines be so limited by the obviously very much lagging Software and Electronics development. The machines have 3 independent servo motors and are mechanically fully equipped. Some of these early machines were later upgraded to the Dialog level to make them fully usable.

The FP A controls were the CNC2101, the CNC2102, and the CNC2301 which seems to have been the start of the Deckel - Grundig cooperation. This was followed by the Dialog 1, a break which is immediately distinguishable by the slightly wider operator console (one more column of buttons).

The electronic boards of the CNC 2101, 2102 and 2301 controls are different from the later type, making them rare and hard to support.
