The tangential knife control is a standard feature of the NextMove motion controllers from Baldor Australia Pty Ltd .

Thanks to these tangential knives, motion controllers are able to accurately control the position of a knife around a 2D shape. Mint's powerful move buffer keywords and interpolation commands (linear and circular) make handling complex shapes easy.

Baldor's MintNC provides a complete NC front end for the machine supporting G-code, DXF and HPGL. Alternatively, the free HPGL interpreter provides complete plotter functionality.

Baldor's free ActiveX tools can be used to develop a bespoke front end to the machine.

Other features of the tangential knives used on the NextMove motion controllers include:

  • Deep move buffer with low move buffer events
  • Inter-vector angle control to determine when to stop motion around sharp corners
  • Move buffer ID to monitor progress of motion
  • Feedrate override to speed up or slow down a machine
  • Tangential knife control
  • Free ActiveX tools for communication between host front end and controller
