2-Axis Lathe DRO with CNC Thrust Collars without Readout Box
NOTE: If using the DRO on a CNC machine, the axis cannot be moved faster than 15 in/min (381mm/min). The DRO was designed for manual use and it will not give a correct position readout at faster feed rates.
Select the inch/metric option to match the DRO handhweels to your machine’s leadscrew pitch. All ball screw machines use a metric pitch.
This kit was developed for those who already have a digital readout installed on their mill and wish to add a DRO to their lathe without duplicating the electronics box. This cost-saving measure allows you to switch the box back and forth between the lathe and mill.
NOTE: The DRO can be ordered on any new machine as a factory installed option. The digital readout handwheels replace the standard handwheels that would normally come with the machine. If you purchase a machine with factory installed DRO, the regular handwheels are not included. If you purchase the DRO as a separate option and install it yourself, you will have the stock handwheels left over.
Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
