Stories: IUPUI EMCO 242 Turning Center

Joe , Lab Technician

MachMotion is pleased to partner with the Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing Laboratory at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis in the retrofit of their Emco Turn 242 CNC lathe. MachMotion recently assisted in the installation of our KT-1150T-X4-AT Retrofit Kit. The kits included our 1150T control, a fully wired electrical enclosure, Teco servo drives and motors, and automatic turret integration. This installation was unique as we reused the customers DC spindle. We identified an Emerson DC variable frequency drive as the best option. We installed and setup the VFD as well.


We are excited to be a part of the research and learning experience at IUPUI!
