Lathe Kit
Our Stepper lathe kit is preconfigured for a medium size lathe, but can be customized to fit your needs for larger lathes. This kit includes a CNC control, up to 6 Stepper drives, a mounting arm, an optional hand held pendant, and an optional electrical enclosure, among other options. If you are retrofitting a CNC lathe or building a new one, this is the kit for you. If you need any help customizing this kit or picking out what size of motors you need for your machine, feel free to give us a call.
Digital CNC Control
Our control is preconfigured with standard parameters for a lathe and all of our products are designed to be as plug-in-play as possible. This makes it very easy to setup our controls.
Operating System & Software
Our control has the Microsoft Windows operating system and the state of the art Mach3 CNC control software. The Mach3 software has a 3D tool path display. Being Windows based, anyone with basic computer skills can learn how to use our CNC controls. Note that this kit needs a Cad Cam software to use.
Unique Features
Some unique features of our control include virtually unlimited file storage space (100GB or 102,400 MB), a flip-out keyboard that you can hide away when not in use, an Ethernet port so you can connect it to your network and transfer files from your office, and an external USB port which you can also use to move your files with a USB Flash Drive. Another feature of our systems is it is possible convert a 3 phase machine to single phase. Please call for more details and pricing.
Our controls accept standard Fanuc style G-code programming. You will need a program to convert your DXF files into G-code. You can use a Fanuc post-processor or many Cad Cam programs are now making post-processors for Mach3.
It is easy to change settings on our controls, add more inputs/outputs, axes, and many other settings. Our controls also come with a screen editor, so you can edit any of the standard screens. Our controls are being used in many custom applications every day.
All PC parts used in our controls are non-proprietary and can be purchased at local suppliers for your convenience.
All of our kits come with a full 1 year warranty. Each system is tested thoroughly before shipment.
Drives and Motors
You can add up to 6 Stepper drives. By default this kit does not come with motors.
