CENTRIOD Digitizing copies any 2D or 3D contour.  Copy and cut with the same machine.

2D and 3D Digitizing software

Copy and Cut 2D and 3D shapes. Centroid's affordable, effective Digitizing is the simplest CNC Digitizing on the market. Just record and play back. Do you have a 2D contour such as a CAM or a 3D part like a mold or plug? But no print? Let our Digitizing feature copy the part for you. Digitizing turns your milling machine into a copy machine. Centroid has overcome the cumbersome problems associated with Digitizing on other controls. With our Digitizing feature you will be able to copy and reproduce an existing shape with little or no programming! No CAD/CAM necessary, but you can export the Digitzing information to a CAD/CAM system for further modification. It's very popular for repairing cylinder head combustion chamber damage, copying cams, creating molds and plugs from existing objects and many other uses. click here for more info or to see the video.

CENTROID's Probing finds your part and fixture zero points fast.  Eliminates the need for edgfinders and centerfinders, faster and more accurate.

Probing package

Probing is used to quickly setup/find zero points on a vise, fixture or part. Accurately sets zero points, finds edges, center locations of bosses or bores, slots and webs. Eliminates the need for a centerfinder or an edgefinder. You'll never have to spend 30 minutes using a center finder to locate the center of a bore again. The probe will find and set the center of a bore in just seconds. In addition the probe can be used to verify part dimensions.

Probing includes DP4 Probe and probing software with CSR.

Coordinate System Rotation is often a powerful feature when combined with Probing. With CSR, you'll never have to indicate in your vise or fixture again, just bolt it to the table and the probe finds the edge automatically and rotates the machine coordinate system to match the position of your vise/fixture in seconds. If you are constantly breaking down and setting up new fixtures you need this option. It will quickly pay for itself many times over. See the video.

Rigid Tapping provides fast accruate way to create threads.

Rigid Tapping

With a Centroid you can make all kinds of threads.You can use Tapping, Rigid Tapping and Threadmilling - depending on your part - for the best result! Centroid's advanced rigid tapping is simple to program and will both tap a hole in the regular way AND will also can peck tap a thread. Peck tapping taps a hole much in the same way as you would by hand. It allows you to tap a much larger hole than the HP of your machine would normally allow! See the video.

Extended Work Coordinate Systems

Our Extended WCS (additional 12 wcs) option gives you 18 total individual part zero positions. Each zero point can be adjusted at any time. The control remembers the positions so there is never a need to reset, even in the event of a power loss. Many uses, this feature allows you to have multiple zero locations in memory. Each vise or fixture can have its own zero point. With WCS you can interupt a job run, set another vise up on the table with new zero, machine that job and return to the original job all without distrubing your original zero point. this is just one example of a time saving use of WCS.

Automatic tool height measurement

Auto Tool Setter
Set up your tools in a quarter of the time it would normally take! If you often machine short-run parts and are always setting up and tearing down for a new job, the TT-1 Auto tool set will save you tons of time while more accurately setting your tool height offsets. With the TT-1 you can create more parts per hour since the tool setup is so much faster. You'll even save time when you have to replace a dull tool with a new one in the middle of a job. The TT-1 is completely automatic. Press "measure" and the tool will automatically touch off the TT-1 and set the tool height offset in the tool library. See the TT-1 in action on our Video CD. The TT-1 plugs into the control. See the video.

Electronic Handwheels for Milling machines.  Control any axis with precision.

MPG Handwheel

Remote MPG handwheel allows you to jog an axis one step at a time. Selectable x1, x10, x100 movement per increment. .0001" per increment is the finest increment. Great for touching off and setting up tools and part zero positions on large machines. Tough ABS plastic body with individual selection knobs for each axis and increment amount. 100 pulses per revolution for fine control. Ergonomic design that is easy to hold. Come with convenient hanger which can be mounted on the control or anywhere it is convenient to store the handwheel when not is use. See the video.

Makes setting up tools and jobs on large machines fast and easy.

DC single Servo motor drive, autotuning, Digitial control.

Add on a true 4th Axis with our DC single axis servo drive

The "DC single" makes it easy to add on a 4th axis to an existing three axis control such as the M-40, M-39S and M-400S. The DC single is designed specifically for adding an extra rotary or linear axis to a CENTROID CNC control equipped with a Servo3I/O and DC3IO. The DC single can also be used as a stand-alone single axis DC servo motor drive and has a max output rating of 15 amps, which runs up to a 40 in-lb continuous-rated DC servo motor. As with all our drives, the DC single is digital and is autotuning, there are no trim pots to adjust. Tuning servo motors now takes only a minute. call for more info.
