Application in CNC machinery

  1. Control Panel
    In the control panel of a CNC machine, the GQ30B flat metal push button switch plays a central role. Operators press these buttons to start and stop the machine, select operating modes, reset error conditions, and more. Due to its rugged design and high durability, the GQ30B is able to maintain stable performance in frequent operations and reduce machine downtime. In addition, models with LED lighting can provide visual feedback when the button is pressed, helping operators quickly confirm the operating status and improve work efficiency.
  2. Safety Interlock Device
    The GQ30B is also commonly used in the safety interlock system of CNC machinery. These systems require that machine operation is allowed only under certain conditions to ensure safe operation. For example, when the machine cover is not closed, the interlock device prevents the machine from starting, thereby avoiding potential safety hazards. The reliability and high protection level of the GQ30B switch make it an ideal choice for these safety-critical applications.
  3. Operation Console
    On the CNC operation console, the GQ30B push button switch provides an intuitive user interface. Operators can quickly switch between different operating modes, such as automatic, manual, and programming modes, through these buttons. The combination of tactile feedback and visual feedback allows operators to focus on operations and improve production efficiency without having to check the display screen frequently while working.
  4. Maintenance panel
    In the maintenance panel of CNC equipment, the GQ30B switch is used to activate specific maintenance functions such as system diagnosis, parameter adjustment, and equipment calibration. Since these operations are usually performed during machine operation, the high durability and protection capabilities of the GQ30B ensure that it can still work stably in various harsh environments, supporting maintenance personnel to complete tasks efficiently.
