Lead CNC Mechanical Frame / CNC Router Full Complete Kit - Open Source
Neotronics SA now offers the LEAD CNC Frame unit and also with options of purchasing the complete unit for your convenience.
The Lead CNC Mechanical frame is a large sized CNC frame unit that can be used to build a CNC laser engraver, CNC router machine and much more. The Lead CNC Machine was originally designed by Mark Carew, It is a super strong, accurate and easy to assemble CNC machine. Based on C-Beam, V-Slot, Xtreme Solid V-Wheels and TR8x8(P2) Leadscrews it is strong, accurate and reliable. It has been designed to accurately cut foams, woods, plastics and aluminium to 0.05-0.10mm accuracy or better. Functional engineering parts, toys, signs or anything else that can be imagined, can be made on the Lead CNC Machine.

Arduino GRBL Based Controller contains the following - Complete controller parts as shown below:
The GRBL Driver controller kit comes with:
Mach3 NVEM USB based - Mach3 software - Complete controller parts as shown below:
DDCS v3.1 Offline Controller - Complete controller parts as shown below:
Big Benefit of the offline controller is that you do not need any laptop to operate, it runs independently on it's own and it already has built in software! Excellent Choice!
The DDCS is a 3~4 axes motion controller for stepper and servo systems. DDCS V3.1 is updated from DDCS V2.1 on software and hardware.It combines great power with a tiny footprint and is easy to use. The highest output pulse per axis is 500KHz.
This provides high control precision for stepper motors and servo motors.
The DDCS numerical control system adopts the ARM+FPGA design framework. ARM controls the human-computer interface and code analysis and the FPGA provides the underlying algorithms and creates the control pulse. This guarantees reliable control and easy operation. The internal operating system is Linux based.
The panel layout structure of the DDCS V3.1 is very rational to save space. All operations are controlled by only 17 keys and a comprehensive G code set is supported.
The DDCS can be used for many styles and types of CNC machines. Lathes, Routers, Pick&-Place and Mills are just a few examples. The DDCS operates as a Stand Alone system without the need of a computer. This guarantees high precision, accuracy and reliability.
