CNC Knee Mills

Remedy CNC Knee Mills: Rigid or Swivel Head designs are available. All are offered with the Remedy R21i Industrial Control with Centroid software

Today, CNC Knee mills are being replaced by CNC bed mills.  This is because Knee mills have a limited Z axis travel of only 4 to 5 inches.   Our Remedy Bed mills have a manual Quill feature which we feel gives you the best of both Knee mill and Bed mill worlds.
