Servo Drive, CNC CPU Replace Older FANUC CNC Controls
A new Servo drive and CNC CPU from CENTROID replaces older FANUC CNC controls to extend machine tool life and returning the machine tool to profitability while making it easier to use and program.
CENTROID Corporation (Howard, PA) offers the capability to directly control FANUC servo motors with its new CNC control. With the large number of aging FANUC equipped CNC machine tools in the world, CENTROID has answered the call for an affordable and reliable CNC control upgrade path for machine shops with failing FANUC based CNC control systems. Now shops can eliminate expensive CNC repair cost and benefit from modern CNC control at the same time. In many cases the CENTROID CNC upgrade ROI is less than one year.
Designed and manufactured in Pennsylvania, CENTROID has been building CNC controls since 1979 and specializes in retrofit upgrade CNC control systems for older CNC milling machines, lathes and routers. Recently CENTROID developed a new Servo drive and CNC CPU which replaces older FANUC CNC controls. This new combination provides replacement reliable modern electronics to a good machine tool extending its life while saving the shop owner time and money returning the machine tool to profitability while making it easier to use and program.
Professional installation is available world wide through CENTROID’s team of experienced CNC control technicians as well as a ‘do-it-yourself’ kits for those who are electronically inclined. The new system can run FANUC Black cap, Yellow cap and the first three generations of Red cap Servo motors up to the “20” motor size. Running on Windows 7 (or 8), the CENTROID CNC control brings modern computer ease-of-use and programming to the machine tool not seen before.

The CENTROID CNC controls comes with built-in advanced standard features and a few optional that were not available with the original control system such as 3D and 2D digitizing, part and fixture automatic probing and automatic tool height measurement. This allows the machine shop to become more efficient and take on work not previously possible with the old control increasing shop profit and capabilities. www.centroidcnc.com
