Our customer has done a fantastic job on building his CNC Mill which includes our M-DRO 470mm (18 1/2 inch) Reading Length Linear Optical Encoder with 1um Resolution and has kindly sent us a video of it in action.

To make the Encoder coolant proof (IP57 rated as standard), he has modified the cover of the Optical Encoder by protection adding a brush seal so coolant and swarf do not get anywhere near the M-DRO Optical scale. It has been working perfectly and our customer is in the process of removing the 2:1 pulleys and going direct drive.

More details about the custom built CNC Mill:

• 4000 rpm

• 750mm per min

• 10mm depth of Cut

• Using Adaptive Clearing
