Patented Ballscrew design.
CENTROID's CNC articulating head was designed specifically for CNC Cylinder head porting. Made in the USA of rigid cast iron the A560 B axis provides 30 degrees of tilt in each direction (60 degrees total) so the tool can cut even the most radical ports. Where others have tried CENTROID has succeeded with this ingenious robust design which produces fantastic ports even better than machines costing twice as much!
Mastercam Port Expert software.
The latest Multi Axis Mastercam software with a one year maintenance agreement is included with every machine. We teach you how to use Mastercam to create perfect CNC ports every time. This powerful package opens your digitizing data and creates the program to port the head, also allows you to tweak hand ported designs if necessary. The CENTROID/Mastercam CNC porting system has significant advantages both in cost and effectiveness while at the same time is the easiest to learn and the best supported porting package on the market.
Add CNC Block blueprinting and machining capabilities to the A560 with the Block option!
CNC Blueprint and Machine blocks with the A560 or A590! Quick Cylinder head to Block changeover times. Advanced CENTROID technology yields precision results on both cylinder heads and blocks using the same machine to do the work. Three machines in one: CNC cylinder head, CNC engine block and all around CNC machining center. The Block option is turn key and all the specialized tooling needed to start machining blocks is included along with onsite training.
