Centroid M400W 3, 4 & 5 Axis Control

Spend less time programming & more time machining with a Centroid

The American made Centroid M 400 Windows based Control, is the featured CNC Control on Remedy Machine tools. Remedy uses an industrial PC. This computer operates on very low voltage which does not create heat. Heat being a loss of energy, it also causes deterioration of the electrical components inside the computer. Using this advanced CPU improves the heart of our operating system. A huge 6 gigabyte memory will allow you to keep hundreds of files (programs) at the machine, or back them up easily onto a USB drive, or use the standard LAN port. For advanced 3D machining we have high speed look ahead with Delta drives & motors. The flexibility of the Centroid control system allows us to control small, medium or heavy duty motors & to drive all size lathes, mills &d machining centers. Remedy offers Delta axis motors & drives, & Delta Spindle inverters as standard equipment on many of our machines.

Centroids (Intercon) Conversational programming is second to none & is standard equipment. Cut parts day 1 with this Powerful & very easy to learn control, it has many canned automatic operations. drill, tap, bore, rectangular, & circular pockets, are some of these easy to use canned cycles. You program in conversational, then at a press of a button instantly you will have Fanuc style G-codes to cut the part. Intercon can read your DXF files (optional item) & make a conversational program to machine the part. Edit if needed, & or do a machining time calculation for so that you can quickly quote the work. Program parts right at the control, or offline at your desktop PC.

Powerful graphics, 2D, 3D & Zoom.
Simultaneously watch your cut in action on the LCD. Download your G-Code program, & then see a graphic display of what the codes will do, & this is displayed before chips are made. Read in a DXF file & watch it come up on our graphic display, then you can quickly create a conversational &
G-code program. Machine run time estimating is also a standard feature of our graphic control.

This control can operate as a 3, 4, or 5 axis unit. Use our DC or AC drives when retrofitting our control onto your used iron. Centroid controls can even drive your Fanuc motors. Manual or automatic operation of the spindle, automatic lube system, flood &/or mist coolant systems are only a few of the optional items available to be driven from the Centroid control. The unit is flexible & can be upgraded with any or all of Centroid’s software options, at anytime.
We always offer In house Training, additionally a Training CD comes with each machine or control retrofit.

DP-4 CNC Touch probe is made in USA with patented technology

An affordable, accurate alternative to expensive Renishaw touch probes. The CENTROID DP-4 CNC Touch probe is designed for Probing (part setup, zero location setup, & CMM type measurement of part geometry, component/fixture/work piece setup, inspection & 3D or 2D digitizing/surfacing.
The DP-4 CNC Touch probe is manufactured of stainless steel & is made in USA with patented technology. Unlike other probes, the DP-4’s low trigger force allows the use of small styli for maximum detail & accuracy. Commonly used on Milling Machines, Machining centers, Router & Turning centers.
The DP-4 is a state of the art mechanical design & is compatible with most any CNC control that has a PLC input for Probes. Previously sold exclusively for use with a CENTROID CNC control, now the DP-4 is available for use with other CNC controls such as Fagor, Haas, Fanuc, Fadal, Mazak, Mach3 & many others.
The bottom photo is the original, the reproduced part (in blue wax) and G code back plot graphics of the digitizing data that was automatically created by CENTROID's CNC Digitizing directly on the milling machine that cut the part. The data you see on the screen is not manipulated raw digitizing data generated by the control, no cad/cam was used in this example. However if more extensive editing to the shape is needed it is easy to export the data to a CAD/CAM system for further editing. Note: Files can be transferred to other centroid equipped machines as well. So you can digitize on one machine and cut the digitized file on multiple machines at the same time for mass production.

 

 

TT-1 Conductive tool measurement.
Set up your tools in a quarter of the time that it would normally take! If you often machine short-run parts and are always setting up and tearing down for a new job, the TT-1 Auto tool set will save you time while more accurately setting your tool height offsets. With the TT-1 you can create more parts per hour since the tool setup is so much faster. You'll even save time when you have to replace a dull tool with a new one in the middle of a job. The TT-1 is completely automatic. Press "measure" and the tool will automatically touch off the TT-1 and set the tool height offset in the tool library.

 

Coordinate System Rotation: CSR matches the machine to your vise.
This option is made specifically for the machinist who is constantly breaking down and setting up new fixtures and vises or very large parts. By simply touching off two points along the edge of your fixture, the control will automatically rotate the machine coordinate system to match your fixture/part angle, saving you time and money. With CSR your vise, fixture or part does not have to be lined up square with the machine, CSR eliminates aligning the vise with an indicator. CSR is very accurate. Job set in minutes. Both automatic (with the CENTROID DP-4 Probe) and manual touch off set up can be used.
