Centroid's T-Series CNC controls for lathes are made in the USA and are delivered as fully prepared pre-wired systems. Their features are so  easy to use you'll turn parts the first day. These controls can always remain current with regular software updates. Even 10 years old Centroid controls can have the newly designed software features of today's controller. Centroid designs, builds, and manufactures Their own CPU's, Motor Amplifiers, PLC's and CNC Software. CNC technology such as noise immune fiber optics allow Centroid controls to run in the harshest industrial environments without faltering or scrapping parts. At Machines in Motion we are here to solve your CNC control problems. We have found that Centroid controls have the reliability, ease of use and computing power to keep your lathe producing precision parts for many years to come.

T-Series Model Descriptions
T-400 Full-featured Lathe Control with Console

Centroid's flagship lathe control (the T-400) comes with standard features that will make your turning jobs much easier. 
The T-400 can handle any sized lathe or turning center, any sized axis motors, any hp spindle (AC or DC) and is auto tool changer ready. The T-400 includes an integrated jog panel to simplify your workspace, and comes with a standard PC keyboard or optional sealed keyboard. The crystal-clear 15" LCD reduces eye strain during programming or running a job. Axis motors can be furnished as AC brushless or DC brush types and in several torque ratings. The T-400S is also available for lower cost (simple) turning centers.

T-39 Lathe Control with Hand Held Pendant

A lower cost solution to full-featured turning the T-39 uses your own PC monitor, keyboard, and our new tower case computer for machining. T-39 options are available to upgrade this control to be equal with every feature available on the T-400.  This model can be installed on everything from desktop lathes to big turning centers and vertical lathes. The T-39 can also be ordered with Centroid's own PLC for your auto tool changer. Like the T-400 Centroid's T-39 turning controller can handle any sized spindle motor (AC or DC). Axis servo motors can be supplied in AC brushless or DC brush types and in several torque ratings. The T-39S is also available as our lowest cost turning control.

T-Series Features
Advanced Features include:
       Smart Search allows mid program interrupt and restart anywhere.
       High Speed Machining.
       Advanced Color Graphics to view parts on screen before running the job.

Automatic constant surface speed control
       The spindle automatically changes RPM to provide the correct surface speed that you
       have specified over the entire part, ensuring a better surface finish, superior turning,
       and longer tool life. Surface speed is also manually adjustable with the spindle speed
       override knob while the program is running.

Tool Path Graphics
The T-400 will graph all tool movements of the program. Slow or even stop the graphing by using the feedrate override knob. You can start and stop the graphing (on-screen dry run) at any point or display only a portion of the program. The graphics dry run checks for overtravel in the program and will display the exact line number of the overtravel event, saving time and materials. The screen is scaled on both axes so you can determine the part size. Dry run also displays the line of G-code being executed for easy reference when editing. When graphing is completed it will accurately estimate the part cycle time.
Easy to read operator's display
           The standard high resolution, non glare, color LCD screen displays: tool position (DRO)
           at all times, spindle RPM, cutting feedrate, and a parts counter with timer. While
           viewing a program graphically, you can distinguish between rapid moves, feedrate
           moves, and cutter comp moves by the different colored lines.
Dedicated, easy-to-understand control panel
           Separate dedicated directional jog keys for both X and Z make
           jogging the machine a one-button operation. The coolant-proof,
           sealed, full-size alphanumeric keypad has tactile feedback for
           solid, confident operation.
Simple setup
           Easy to use graphical menus guide you through part and tool setup. The T-400
           remembers your part zero position and specific tool offset library even after you
           turn the machine off. You can instantly move from one job to another using the same 
           tools setup saving you time and grief.
Intercon: Conversational Programming

           Program parts right at the control with Centroid's
           conversational programming feature. No G-codes to
           learn or memorize. Instantly see any changes you
           make to the part graphically. Intercon leads you
           through the part programming process in a logical,
           easy to understand format. Just fill in the blanks
           and check the graphics. G-codes are created
           automatically! Select from these canned cycles: 
           Profiling, (material removing, roughing and
           finishing), Cutoff, Grooving, Threading, Line, Arc,
           Drilling and Floating-tapping, Automatic Blending
           (connecting radius), Chamfering, and Blended
           Chamfer. If dimensions are missing from your
           part, Math Help will solve for any unknown points. 
 

          For those who prefer to program directly in Fanuc style G-code Centroid controls also
          include a standard PC type text editor. You can graph your program at any point and 
          visually see your progress.
T-Series Control Options
Programmable tool changing is available on both milling and Turning controls.
