Uwe Mattern's AcornSix 4-Axis Lathe, Fully Closed Loop using Scales for Position Correction
Today we're looking at Uwe Mattern's AcornSix powered 4-Axis Lathe using Position Correction with an RS422 AIKRON Slim Linear 1µ Encoder Scale. Uwe has built an impressive fully closed loop Lathe using the Centroid AcornSix Controller. The RS422 AIKRON 1µ scale needs only a pinout adjustment to be compatible with CNC12, configure your scales using the CNC12 Wizard and fine tune using the CNC12 Scales menu by adjusting dead band and velocity!
Watch as Uwe gives you a quick rundown of using Scales with CNC12.
Then check out his second video, showing the repeatability and precision the Centroid AcornSix Controller can produce while running with Linear Scales!
