FANUC CNC Guide FANUC CNC Guide - Intelligent CNC Simulation Software

FANUC’s CNC Guide offers a hands-on, simulated training experience teaching users how to operate CNCs. Via digital twins of machine controls, programmers can test G-code programs with no risk of damaging the machine.

CNC Guide teaches the programmer how to use performance-enhancing control features, like cycle time estimate and collision checking. CNC Guide can be used as a simplified CAD/CAM package in tandem with our conversational programming software, MANUAL GUIDE i, so you can program on a PC and keep your machines operating.


FANUC MANUAL GUIDE i a user-friendly conversational programming platform that makes it easy to perform create part programs right on the shop floor. The innovative programming enables development from a drawing to a production part in a very short time.

Thanks to MANUAL GUIDE i, FANUC CNCs can be programmed very easily and quickly, for turning, milling and compound machining. Self-explanatory menus and graphic simulations guide the user through the programming, producing highly efficient results even for complex machining processes.

MANUAL GUIDE i software is based on the ISO code format and has an ergonomic CNC user interface for programming cycles. It uses a graphical user interface with user-friendly icons which allow you to interactively create part programs in just a few steps. All of the relevant information is displayed on one CNC screen. Having to constantly change between screens is thus avoided as is the risk of getting lost in the numerous pop-up screens.

FANUC Intelligent Human Machine Interface (iHMI) FANUC Intelligent Human Machine Interface (iHMI)

The FANUC Intelligent Human Machine Interface (iHMI) provides a simple, efficient, and intuitive way to interact with the FANUC Series 30i/31i/32i-MODEL B CNCs. TheHMI features a new look with new hardware, including a flat-panel touch-screen display and highly graphical, straightforward navigation. iHMI also incorporates a variety of new tools and features designed to increase ease-of-use, improve operational efficiency, and bring more control to the shop floor. Following a Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) process model, iHMI features focus on three key areas: Planning, Machining, and Improvement.


FANUC introduced two new functions in the Planning section. The Cycle Time Estimation function quickly and easily processes programs created in CAD/CAM software and provides an estimated cycle time that is accurate to within 5%. Accurate estimates help operators with better planning and lead to greater overall efficiency across the entire facility. With the Tool Manager function, users can import tool data from the manufacturer to monitor the tool usage and lifespan. This information is also useful to have on the shop floor for setting tool offsets, creating machining simulations, and in collision avoidance applications.

FANUC Reliability

While the iHMI provides a new way to interface with FANUC CNCs, machine operations are still controlled with the same great performance and reliability you have come to expect from FANUC CNCs. There is no new system or operations to learn.


The key improvement in the Machining section is the redesigned CNC operation screen. This screen gives the user access to the most common operations without having to navigate back and forth between multiple screens. In the Programming screen, users can review, edit, or write g-code. Using the Set-up screen, operators can set or change set up parameters such as tool positioning or tool length compensation. In the machining screen, operators can monitor the process parameters, including feed spindle speeds and program processes.

To make machining easier, iHMI comes with a variety of packaged cycle commands. This provides users with an easy way to set up standard operations. Simply follow the guide and enter a few parameters to create measurement or machining cycles for both mills and lathes.

The Machining section also hosts a powerful machining simulation function. Operators can use this function to validate the performance of their programs and cycles to make sure they are performing as expected. iHMI supports both animated and tool track renderings.

The Troubleshooting function is also hosted in the Machining section. Troubleshooting identifies the cause of alarms and recommends a solution.


The Improvement section includes key functions for increased efficiency and overall performance. The Servo Viewer presents waveform graphs of key operating data such as the position and speed of the feed axis and the torque of the spindle. Operators can use this information to optimize the cutting conditions and machine programs to shorten cycle times.

All of the data collected by iHMI is collected by the data logger and can be shared with other functions and applications on the control. This includes the Tool Manager and Maintenance manager. To support IoT initiatives, data can be shared using MT Link i, FANUC’s operation management software.

The Maintenance Manager function actively monitors the performance of components of the CNC and alerts the operator if the performance shows the component might be reaching the end of its expected lifespan. When this occurs, the operator is notified with enough time to order any required replacement parts. The alert has convenient links to the operator's manual with instructions on how to perform the repair. The end result is less unexpected downtime and smoother, more predictable operations.

New Hardware

iHMI is available on FANUC Series 30i/31i/32i-MODEL B CNCs. The iHMI also has several hardware improvements, including flat-panel touch screens, soft-touch keys and a hardened outer shell with greater resistance to corrosive materials like cooling fluid. iHMI is available in horizontal and vertical configurations with 10.4”, 15”, or 19” panel sizes.

FANUC Panel i Industrial PC FANUC Panel i Industrial PC

The FANUC Panel i is a powerful industrial PC available with touch, or non-touch LCD display, solid-state drives (SSDs), and Windows Embedded, making it a fast, reliable, secure and user-friendly option for high-performance and/or customized HMIs. The Panel i is available in 10.4'', 15'', 19'' or 21.5'' sizes, with single or multi-touch options to fit the needs of a wide variety of automated work cells.

The Windows Embedded operating system increases the reliability of the system and allows it to be locked down for additional security against viruses and hacking. The SSDs provide additional reliability and speed, making it an ideal option for high-performance and critical applications.
