ISO CNC Z Axis Quill drive

Post by BMF »

Recently purchased a 2 axis Anilam 3000M conversion on a 2004-ish Acra Knee Mill. I would like to upgrade it to an All-in-1DC control, but I need a Z Axis Quill Drive for it. I would prefer to purchase one over designing and making my own. I see that Elrod Machine has been sold to ServoProducts, and they say that they are going to continue to produce a Quill Drive but I don't see anywhere to order it from. So if anyone has one or has any leads or ideas on where to get one I would appreciate the help.

Don't hold your breath on Servo Products. They have been saying for 5 years now that they were going to continue the Elrod products. My guess is they sold off the existing stock of parts he had and dropped it.

One of my customers just obtained a new Elrod quill drive kit from Servo Products.

Call or e-mail them and ask.
