Truely Revolutionary… NXGEN

The Next Generation CNC
A new CNC with all the popular features and familiarity of the Legacy control, completely redesign from the ground up, using the latest technologies while running on a Windows 7 based Open Architecture platform.

Machine: Fadal VMC Control Upgrade

1998 VMC 4020 with NXGEN Upgrade Installed

Bottom Line Benefits:

  • Performance – In many cases, we are measuring 10x the performance of the Legacy, across the board. How about 10 millionths program resolution!  More…
  • More Parts, Less Time – Machine parts faster without sacrificing accuracy.  More…
  • Ease of Use – Latest technology with today’s Touch Screen simplicity, speed and familiarity with many “One Touch” features.  More…
  • Legacy Compatibility – Walk up and use it, feel right at home (servicemen, programmers and operators).  More…
  • Remote Support - With Remote Support it’s just like we are standing right in front of your machine.  It is amazing to see the power of what we can do directly to your control right from our facilities!   More…
  • Dependability – New state of the art isolated power and ground design (eliminating ground loops and power problems) plus we have reduced the board count to only 1/3 of the Legacy (less boards means less failures.)   More…
  • Serviceability – Many new software tools provides pin-point diagnose, simple card cage design has easy access.   More…

The NXGEN control design team is headed by David M. de Caussin. David was one of the original family members back when Fadal started building the first machines in 1978.
For over twenty years he was directly involved with the development of the Legacy (CNC 88, CNC HS, CNC MP and the 32MP) control software and hardware designs as VP of Control Design until 1998, three years after the company was sold to Giddings and Lewis (G & L).

The new control project has been in development since 2011. It is the accumulation of many talented engineers and specialized companies. We have been working with many of the best control software and hardware engineering companies in the world to provide the absolute best product.
We have completed our beta program that was started in 2015.  Careful and patient field testing at selected facilities before production release is the key to a successful control introduction.

The Best Of Both Worlds:
We are also partnering with major OME machine tool builders to also provide new machines with the NXGEN control, for both mills and lathes!

Not only do we provide a huge technology upgrade for your existing machines but soon you can also have the same control on all your new machines!

Watch and see the NXGEN CNC in Action:
Higher Accuracy and Better Finishes, in Less Time!
- The Latest in Touchscreen Technology & Legacy Compatibility

    What would a CNC only retrofit cost for a Fadal 4020 with the CNC88 control?

    Dave de Caussin,
    It was a pleasure to speak with you yesterday concerning and thank you for the help in identifying a new Baldor spindle drive to replace the failed one we currently have in our 2 Fadal 4020′s. I look forward to reading about the new controller retrofit results as they become available. Good luck to you Mr. De Caussin.

    ok, is the control available? we are anxiously waiting!

    how adaptable is it to using a probe? we are trying to move ahead with the idea of probes, but the old cnc88 is clunky.

    I am interested in your controller as a package as a retrofit controller.
    Please send me information on compatibility and configuration, and target price for retail and retrofitters.
    I am interested in a control package that will work with various CAD applications, and on various machine types, but using the same controller.
    The types of machines are but not limited to plasma burn tables, mills, lathes, and other CNC equiptment such as automated machinery traditionally operated by PLCs.

    Would Nxgen be interested in a OEM application (production EDM machines) with a estimated 12 units or more a year. Please advise.

    I am looking to retro fit a 1994 Fadal 4020 Machining center. It has a CNC 88HS Controller on it. Is this an kit that can be retrofit by us? Is it “Plug and Play”?

    What is the cost of this kit?

    Best Regards,

    Thank God this NXGEN controller has the feature, format and function from the previous 88 & MP controller. I knew that a controller like this could not have gone away silent in the night. Looks like the 88 on steroids. The 88′s had always been the easiest to work on hands down. The Initial GUI remains simplistic as I hoped with a twist of an operating system. Compete full layout like other controllers speak of simplicity but only complicate. I’ve never seen the intimacy that operators have had with a controller’s interface when working on the 88MP from the past. I’d like to try this controller out ASAP. If it is what I see it is, there is a possible resurgence on the horizon. You got me curious! I will be following…

      We are just finishing up our first upgrade/testing and it is going well.

      Wont be long we will be doing the field upgrades. In the next couple of weeks.

        Our first upgrade at Mega CNC in Cleveland that is…….
