• Program line moves with ease. Enter what you know: endpoint data, or taper angle and taper length
• Automatic connect radius for lines and arcs and automatic chamfer for lines
• Program Arcs with End Point & Radius, Center Point & Angle, Center Point & Endpoint or Three Points


Threading, Grooving, Turning, Cutoff, Chamfering, and Radius Cycles

• Canned threading cycles include: Inside, Outside,   Compound, and Tapered (pipe) threading cycles
• Threading cycles can be used by simply selecting the   thread from the built-in library or enter your own custom   thread using type of thread and entering pitch, diameter, and   length
• Designate threads Class with multi pass, spring pass, finish   pass controls and multi lead threads
• Grooving: Straight, Chamfered, or Radiused Grooves on the   inside, outside, front, or back of the part

• Specify threads-per-inch, spindle speed, and depth and the   control does the rest
cnc lathe part taper   Tapering Cycles

• Add any taper to your part, at any angle, by specifying a start and end point, or use the angle and length of the taper
• Intercon will automatically calculate any unknown values
c axis lathe cnc control
C Axis Positioning

dual x z electronic lathe handwheels

Dual Electronic Handwheels

Intuitive handwheels provide the operator with a fast and easy way to setup a job. Move an axis just like a manual lathe. Great for touching off part zero positions and setting up tool offsets these CENTROID handwheels have a natural feel and can be used in conjunction with the axis Jog buttons on the operators control panel. A center mounted Joy stick allows for easy fast jogging of both the X an Z axis in both directions. The CENTROID dual handwheels can be mounted anywhere on the lathe with the provided sealed mounting box or can be mounted flush into your existing cabinet.

New installations or Retrofit upgrade of existing CNC handwheels.
