"Centroid announces a new Single Board CNC controller.
The Centroid “OAK” board is a complete CNC control contained in one printed circuit board. Centroid answers the call for an affordable industrial quality high performance CNC control with the new OAK board CNC design. Oak based CNC systems can take advantage of widely available price competitive AC Brushless motors and drives. Designed for both new machinery installations and retrofit upgrade applications and sized at 12”x8” the Oak board is compact and contains an integrated DSP motion controller (the “MPU11”), a CNC PLC (programmable logic controller) with 9 fused relay outputs, along with 16 inputs, plug and play cable connections for a variety of AC brushless servo drives, operator control panel connection, MPG (operator handwheel) connection, Digitizing and Tool touch off probes here to view PDF of the complete article

Modern Machine Shop Magazine, CNC Retrofit Article

May 2014 Modern Machine Shop Magazine.

From the May issue of Modern Machine Shop Magazine " A CNC retrofit provides improved reliability and functionality compared to an older machine’s original control, and this is helpful in a number of ways. For example, a more intuitive control interface can help speed setups and minimize the chance for programming and/or setup mistakes, which could possibly damage or scrap a high-value work piece. Similarly, shops are also more confident in quoting work for large, expensive parts knowing the new control won’t hiccup partway through an operation and cause the part to be damaged. Shops also are better-positioned to take in “hot” jobs that require fast turnaround due to the retrofitted machine’s improved"... click here to see the complete article in PDF.

"During the last 22 years Terry has installed 122 Centroid retrofits in the greater Houston area. Terry has installed 5 CNC retrofits for T.L. Hiner, two of them are a pair of Mori Seiki SL-3 turning centers. Terry installed the new Centroid T-400 CNC controls on both of the SL-3's in place, on the shop floor, so there was no need to move the machines for the retrofit. The two machines are arranged for efficiency, facing each other so one operator can keep both machines running parts all day long. In addition to a variety of job shop parts, one of the regular high volume jobs at T.L. Hiner is turning compressor valve seats, Mike the operator at T.L. Hiner programs both Mori Seiki SL-3's with Centroid's built-in “Intercon” Conversational programming which prompts the operator for dimensions from the print and automatically creates the G-code to turn the part and displays the results graphically. Mike says “he likes the graphics on the screen so he can see what its going to do before it does it”. The T-400 also accepts G-code from most any CAD/CAM system as well. G-code programs can be transferred to the control via USB memory sticks or thru an Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN) connection. Mike commented that even though the control has “a ton of memory” and that he leaves all his programs on the control ready to go, he really likes the USB “jump drive” and uses it to make backup copies of all his programs in the office computer so there are at least two copies of his work on different computers.

Sharnoa Centroid CNC retrofit for 3D machining

December Manufacturing News: Sharnoa CNC Knee Mill Retrofit upgrade for 3D Machining

A new Centroid M400 CNC control was installed in the Sharnoa by Doug Laursen of Machines in Motion. The original servo motors were reused, making the upgrade simple. There was no mechanical work required to fit new motors. The M400 CNC control uses Centroid's own digital DC servo drive, which, according to Centroid, is a very robust unit and can drive almost any DC servo motor up to 15 amp per axis. “If servos are in good shape and can be reused during an upgrade there is a cost savings,” said a Centroid spokesperson. “In this case, reusing existing servos saved over $3,000 in the cost of the upgrade.” read more click here

Bridgeport Boss Series II    

CENTROID Boss series II retrofit customer testimonial

"The quality and workmanship of the CENTROID equipment was outstanding and very professional. CENTROID was able to custom tailor the control to allow us to continue to use our rotary milling arrangement as before and even expanded our capability. The short story is that we ended up with a four axis CNC mill for less than half the cost of the three axis Haas. This includes the work that was done by our staff."
