Cut parts the first day with CENTROID's straight-forward operation. Machine
parts not possible with other controls. Get more work through a machine
with faster setups. Produce parts with a better surface finish. Spend
less time programming and more time making chips. Bring in more work and
bid on higher paying jobs.
Useful Tools for
quicker job turn around.
Stop and restart the job at any point. Stop, make any adjustments, and
restart right where you left off. Toolpath Graphics show you the cutter
path before & while running the job. On-the-fly override control of feeds
and speeds. Useful Help Screens guide you through Setup and Programming.
Large Color LCD display is easy to read. Run large part programs with
no limitations. High Speed processing provides smooth machining, no gouging.
Fast, smooth continuous tool motion, no hesitation or dwell.
panel for Milling functions.
Clearly labeled controls for each axis and direction. Dedicated buttons
for spindle and coolant controls. Spindle speed override and Feedrate
override. Tool Check, Feed Hold, Cycle Start, Rapid override, Incremental
and Continuous Jog, Single Block. Customize with Tool index +/-, Clamp/Unclamp,
Vac on/off, & more. Extra auxiliary buttons are programmable for special
applications. Fully sealed, coolant proof, long-lasting in shop environment.
Tactile feedback, raised buttons with distinct action. Indicator lights
show the selection made.
Programming is fast and easy.
Program parts right at the control or offline with your desktop PC Convert
geometry from DXF files to Centroid's Intercon operations. Supports contouring,
pocketing, framing, drilling, boring, tapping, & threading. Centroid's
Intercon generates the G codes for you. Help screens for all the common
milling cycles, just fill in the dimensions. Even lines and arcs are canned
cycles. A graph of the part shows your work as you go. Graph at any point.
Automatic pocket cleanout, Intercon auto creates the roughing and finish
passes automatically. Fill in the blank: Threadmilling, Drilling, (3 types
of cycles), Tapping (Rigid, Rigid peck tapping, Floating), Pocketing,
Facing, Auto connect radius, Lines, Arcs, Math Help, Teach in and much
drive for quick and easy file transfer.
All CENTROID CNC controls are equipped with a USB port. Having a standard
PC compatible USB port makes file transfers fast and easy. Program parts
on your desktop PC and transfer to control Bring in part programs from
offline CAD/CAM systems Back up programs to USB flash drive. Transfer
programs from one control to another.
color LCD display for easy operation and programming. No other control
has such a large easy-to-read display. With a special no-glare coating,
the CENTROID LCD display is sealed from liquids and greasy fingers. With
the 15" display, Programming, Editing, and viewing tool paths is now a
joy. Large bright letters. Color tool path graphics shows cutter comp
moves. Easy to view from any angle. No flicker, no ghosting, long life,
runs cool. Perfectly flat for accruate graphics. Sealed from shop coolant
and oils. Special no-glare coating.
CNC control panel is straight forward. Individual dedicated buttons
for all common machine functions. One-button operation to Jog an axis.
One-button tool check Sealed from shop coolant and oils. Long-lasting,
durable overlay. Tactile feedback (button depresses with distinct feel).
Easy to read, well-labeled, intuitive layout
Tool Path Graphics show tool path of cutter comp moves. Make fewer
programming errors with our excellent tool path graphics. Instantly see
the tool path at any point while you are programming. Great for checking
your work as you go. Run-time graphics show you the cutter position while
the job is being machined. Great for large machines and for when the cutter
is buried in flood coolant. Graph and edit G code programs from any source
right at the control. Graph Digitized part programs. All 2D views and
3D, zoom in/out, slow down or speed up, pause graph, graph any the whole
part or just a section, different color of lines for different types of
moves. Very accurate run-time estimation. True backplot graphics, WYSIWYG.
What you see is what you get -- to show you what the machine will do.
