We offer an extensive range of Digital Readout equipment from most of the major manufacturers. This allows the most suitable options of consoles and encoders to be selected; based on functionality, price, and available mounting space. Both linear and rotary encoders are available in a variety of compact profile options. We stock a large range of adaptor cables and interfaces to allow simple replacement of damaged/faulty existing equipment for most manufacturers. A PC based DRO interface and axis summing interfaces are also available. Please feel free to contact our technical staff for further advice, or to arrange an on-site install by one of our engineers (uk only).
This kit has transformed my pre-metrication Super 7 in terms of convenience and usability. The calculator and diameter/radius functions make it so easy to machine Imperial stock to metric dimensions and vice versa.
Fitting was straightforward thanks to the CNC machined parts and the clear instructions. The sensors seem to be well protected against the ingress of swarf and coolant and don't interfere with lathe operation.
I can thoroughly recommend this kit to Myford owners. (Posted on 22/12/2017)
