The FANUC CNC Series 0i-MODEL F is the newest generation in the highly popular Series 0i and integrates many features found on the Series 30i-MODEL B. The Series 0i-F brings faster, more accurate performance to a wide range of milling, turning, punching and grinding applications with more standard features, more advanced capabilities and faster communications than ever before. The Series 0i control is the industry's most reliable system with a Mean Time Between Failure rate of 52 years.
The Series 0i-MODEL F offers more axes, ladders and paths, as well as high-speed auxiliary machine functions and an expanded list of standard features. Additional features available on the Series 0i-MODEL F include 15" display, QWERTY keyboard, I/O Link i, high-speed rigid tapping, function for loader control, tolerance control, axis name expansion, program folder management, quick program restart, flexible path axis assignment, multi-path PMC function, ladder dividing management, EtherNet/IP and PROFINET.
- Support for up to 11 servo axes, 4 simultaneous interpolated axes, 4 spindles and 3 independent PMC machine ladders as well as multiple part-program paths and high-speed auxiliary machine functions
- Standard features include many advanced features typically associated with higher-end control systems come standard
- Available with 8.4”, 10.4”, or 15” display and QWERTY or ONG keyboard

The Series 0i-F now allows program names with up to 32 alphanumeric characters so it is compatible with Series 30i-B.
High-Response Vector Control
High-Response Vector control (HRV 3) is a high-speed DSP, digital servo and spindle current-control method that provides greater precision and allows for higher machining speeds.
Bell-shaped acc/dec minimizes machine shock and reduces the time it takes to accelerate and decelerate and can be applied to rapid, contouring and tapping motions.
AI Contour Control
AI Contour Control (AICC I/AICC II) uses advanced look-ahead algorithms to determine the optimal feedrate and acceleration. This can reduce cycle times and improve accuracy, which is especially beneficial when machining complex, curved surfaces such as aerospace or automotive parts or metal dies.
Tool Retract & Recover
Tool retract and recover simplifies tool inspection and replacement while machining. When activated, the tool safely retracts from the part and then can be manually moved to an inspection position. When released, the tool moves back along the path created by the manual moves.
M-codes are used to make one path wait for the other path to complete an operation before proceeding. One path can also be commanded to wait until another path reaches a specified absolute coordinate position before continuing.
Twin Table Control
Twin Table Control adds flexibility for twin-table machining centers and routers. The movement of each table can be synchronized to act as one large table, or managed independently for complex production runs.
Program restart allows mid-program startup when the program was interrupted for a tool inspection or the machine stopped for a prolonged break.
