The M400 has a larger screen than the original and easily fits in the stock operators console with plenty of room left over for a row of custom machine function buttons. These machine functions are tied into the M400 CNC control and have both manual and automatic control through program control G and M codes.
Terry programmed handy machine functions into the Centroid PLC and added dedicated buttons for operator convenience such as: Table IN/OUT, Table Stop, Wheel Start, Wheel Stop, Coolant ON, Coolant OFF, Retract, Manual Lube, Magnet ON, Spark OUT indication, and Set Zero.
On the right side of the original operators cabinet, notice the MPG (manual electronic handwheel) and USB connections that were included with the Centroid CNC retrofit upgrade.
The "christmas" tree lights (stack lights) and a load meter have also been retained. These lights let the operator know what stage of the program the machine is in from across the room.
