High Speeds
The latest technology constant current chopping drives used in the DriveRack power electronics result in very high feed and rapid rates, while the MN400 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 not acceptable 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 offer a full assortment of low cost tools and accessories.
