The machine has a dynamic positioning accuracy as high as ±0.003".


The company’s motion control technology, Compute First — Move Later, comes standard with the machine. Incorporating Windows XP software, the system can calculate the velocity of a tool path at more than 2,000 points per inch.


Other features include an abrasive feed system equipped with the Maxjet 5 nozzle, a direct-drive pump, a precision-bridge X axis and a cantilever Y axis, which is mounted to the cutting table. Also, the company says it will provide updated software to all existing customers at no additional charge.
