The original OmniTurn CNC control has served productively for twenty-two years on thousands of turning-machines nation-wide. The new G4 control uses the latest ethernet technology for simpler and faster CNC Control. The standard control ships with three-axis simultaneous servo control (X, Z & C); a fourth simultaneous axis is available as an option. Using ethernet to connect the motion card to the computer requires fewer connections and less hardware, which increases reliability.
NC Electronics, Inc. designs and manufactures the OmniTurn CNC equipment. We were one of the first in the machine tool industry to apply PC based computer control to machine tools, and we've produced thousands of machines and controls since 1987. This experience is reflected in the latest G4 control.
Good news for OmniTurn Users
New Generation CNC Control
|Fast... Precise... Affordable...|
Computer slides out for maintenance; easy access to all components.
All motion-control related components are accessible from the top. To access the computer only the front panel needs to be removed. Fan-cooled, sealed enclosure stays cool and clean. Upper chassis fan blows directly on servo amps. Lower chassis fan cools energy-efficient Mini ITX motherboard. Motherboard has one PCI slot for network card; 128MB solid-state hard-drive.
Some advantages of the G4 CNC: Faster servo update time resulting in better finishes and tighter arc blending • Three ways to input a program: RS-232, keyboard and USB memory stick • Color LCD display and enhanced user display • One-year warranty on all CNC control components • High capacity solid state hard drive • Four axis simultaneous control • On-screen display of tool number & true position • Plane-switching for milling
