Acorn Lathe CNC12 software has been released!
Check out this shaky out of focus video of our in house Techno Lathe equipped with and Acorn CNC controller.
The Lathe is being powered by stepper motors for the X and Z axis, the stepper motors are driving by a Gecko G540 stepper drive which is connected to the Acorn CNC control board. The CNCPC is running Windows 10 and Centroid CNC12 Lathe CNC software, the part programs (Gcode) was created by Centroid's own conversational programming system that is included with the Acorn CNC control kit. "Intercon"
The Lathe has a 3 phase spindle motor that is run by a Teco VFD that is controlled by the Acorn board.
The Lathe has a 2000 line (8000 count) encoder mounted 1:1 with the spindle and that plugs into the Acorn board as well.
The entire CNC system runs off of 220 SINGLE phase power. The VFD synthesizes the third leg needed by the 3 phase spindle motor. this is nice the whole machine can run off a typical dryer outlet in any garage or basement.
The video shows Rigid Tapping, Threading, Profiling, Drilling and Constant Surface Speed turning.
