OEM CNC Controls packages are ready to install

Centroid's CNC controls are the fastest and easiest to integrate onto a new machine. The controls arrive ready to install with the control panels preconfigured for your particular machine, saving hours -- if not days -- of installation time. PLC ladder logic is also preprogrammed for your particular machine. The 400M is available with our affordable DC brush axis motors OR our new super powerful AC Brushless axis motors.

A powerful control with user-friendly operation Centroid 400M console can be mounted in a variety of ways for the best operator position

  • 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 more parts per hour 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 to make diameter or tool offset adjustments.

  • Help screens for all the common milling cycles, just fill in the dimensions.
  • A graph of the part shows you your work as you go.
  • Automatic cleanout, Intercon auto creates the roughing and finish passes.
  • Convert geometry from DXF files to Centroid's Intercon* operations. Supports contouring, pocketing, framing, drilling, boring, tapping, & threading.
  • Fill in the blank programming. 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 more!

USB port for use with any USB Storage device

Quickly and easily load G code programs and DXF files into the control with a USB thumb drive. Downloading large G-code part programs generated from a CAD/CAM system is now fast and simple. The control automatically recognizes the USB thumb drive and a drive letter shows up on the load menu along with the built-in hard drive. You can even graph the G-code part programs directly from the USB thumb drive to identify the program you want before downloading into the control! USB drive support is a standard feature.Ethernet LAN connection, RS-232, and MPG connector are also standard features of the T400 CNC control.
