CENTROID M-39 Shizuoka CNC Knee Mill Retrofit
Stages of a M-39 CNC Retrofit of a Shizuoka Knee mill
Here is a Shizuoka model AN-S 3 axis NC mill. This rugged and very popular knee mill was originally equipped with a Bandit control. This machine is in good mechanical condition but is equipped with an old obsolete NC control.
With control parts becoming scarce and repairs more frequent, it was time to upgrade!
The M-39 is a lower cost Centroid package, you supply the monitor and standard PC keyboard. Centroid supplies the axis motors, amplifiers and CNC PC, and the prewired NEMA cabinet. There is also an optional hand-held push button pendant.
Your local Centroid representative will come to your shop and evaluate your machine and spec the right Centroid CNC for the job.
This is what you can expect when your control arrives. Centroid controls are not just a few computer parts in a UPS package.
Centroid CNC Controls are completely factory assembled and come ready to install on your machine.
The electrical enclosure of the M-39 is: 24' wide X 36' tall.
CNC manual, hook up wiring diagram, and training video.
