High Speeds
The latest technology constant current chopping drives used in the DriveRack power electronics result in very high feed and rapid rates, while our fully optoisolated motion controller insures maximum reliability with the use of opto-isolated inputs and outputs on ALL connections. Other systems may use direct connection or a printer port whose reliability is typically not suitable for industrial applications.
Low Cost Accessories
Since our CNC machines are designed around existing manual machines, they accept standard tools and accessories. This means you won't have to spend a fortune on specialized or custom tooling. The most commonly needed ones are included with the package for convenience and added savings. We also offer a full assortment of practical tools and accessories to choose from below in the optional accessories section.
Quality
MicroKinetics CNC systems are expertly built and performance tested to conform to stringent standards. Detailed assembly, testing procedures and checklists are followed to insure consistent, repeatable, high quality machines.  All components are individually tested and the complete system is tested again as a unit before shipment.
Industry Leader
MicroKinetics offers the best reasonably priced CNC systems and knowledgeable technical support in the industry. Five year warranty on electronics and one year warranty on mechanics. MicroKinetics has been offering CNC systems to educational institutions, hobbyists, research facilities and small machine shops since 1985 using the same business philosophy, expert engineering and technical support!

CNC LeGrande Unique Advantages:

  • Includes High performance CNC motion controller with continuous contouring.
  • Limit switches for end of travel without relying solely on mechanical dead stops. Mechanical dead stops are included and provide redundancy which comes into play in the unlikely event that a limit sensor malfunctions.
  • Lifetime timing belts derated to never break or need replacement in this application but are important in achieving low vibration and smooth operation.
  • Oiling system.
  • High voltage drivers offer impressive high speed and substantial added position reliability due to increased reserve torque.
  • Our own custom engineered standard G-code based software with regular enhancements.
  • More G-codes and M-codes are now supported, and Windows 8/7/Vista/XP support.
  • Includes our own intelligent Driverack controller with feedrate override .
  • Includes one year warranty on mechanical parts, cables and motors and a five year warranty on our own electronics.

 

Master Control Software

MillMaster Pro for Windows controls and graphically simulates a 3-axis milling type CNC control on any PC running Windows 98/2000/XP/Vista/7/8. The CNC part program can be typed directly into the editor screen, or can be generated via a CAD/CAM program. The interactive mode allows you to see the operation performed graphically as you type each CNC line, aiding in part program development or training. For documentation purposes, you can print the graphics screen and the part program together or separately. True circular interpolation on any two axes and simultaneous linear interpolation on all axes are standard. This allows full 3-D surfacing designs to be run on the target 3 axis machine.

Included Accessories:
  • Bed mill base system with 3 HP motor  
  • 5TPI (.200") ballscrews at .003" per foot max linear error 
  • Stepper motors (2) 42HT1700 (1) 34HT1275
