At EZCut CNC we are firm believers that the whole is only as good as the sum of its parts. It is for this reason that we only use the highest quality materials and parts that are both durable and state-of-the-art. Our complete CNC plasma cutting systems come with everything you need to start cutting in your metal fabrication shop right away. This “complete system” includes a CNC controller that helps controls where your plasma torch cuts. We know that you cannot understand the truly exceptional value without understanding what each component is which is why we want to explore what exactly a CNC controller is and what it does. CNC Router Source gives a brief overview of CNC controller basics, “The CNC controller is the brain of a CNC system. A controller completes the all-important link between a computer system and the mechanical components of a CNC machine. The controller’s primary task is to receive conditioned signals from a computer or indexer and interpret those signals into mechanical motion through motor output. There are several components that make up a controller and each component works in unison to produce the desired motor movement. The word controller is a generic term that may refer to one of several devices, but usually refers to the complete machine control system. This system may include the protection circuitry, stepper or servo motor drivers, power source, limit switch interfaces, power controls, and other peripherals. Owners, operators, designers, and builders of CNC devices should understand the tasks performed by these components and how they affect machine performance.”
Our systems come with CNC CAD and CAM cutting software. When you design something in our software, or upload something to be cut in our software, the cutting parameters are determined and then sent to the CNC controller. The controller works with motors and drive components to carefully execute the determined motions necessary to achieve the desired cuts. In our EZCut CNC plasma cutting systems, the cables for the controller and plasma cutter are protected by a 4’’ wide cross-axis track located on both the X and Y axis. Additionally, the controller (just like the computer stand, and X-axis tracking) can be attached on either side of the table for easy configuration for your fabrication shop. Without a high quality CNC controller your plasma cutter could not achieve such precise and accurate cuts. The CNC controller, coupled with the other outstanding components, makes our CNC plasma cutting system complete and will make it possible for you to have a turnkey experience and start achieving the cuts you want right away.
