Description

The 2 axis MicroCNC lathe allows students to understand how G codes are used to control a CNC lathe.  The two stepper motors and DC motor connect to our CNC system controller hardware to allow full control of the lathe using the G code file host software.  Students can use the hardware and lathe to see how each G code command affects the lathe operation and they can create complex work pieces from wax cylinders.

This is supplied in kit form.  Once assembled, it can be stored in our standard plastic storage tray.
