Step Design Ltd is further extending its product and system integration capability by offering pre-assembled tailored CNC (computer numerical control) control systems, including motion controllers (Mach3/4) and servo/stepper drives. The control systems can be easily retrofitted to machines, lathes, mills, routers or special-purpose machines on which an existing CNC control system has failed or which are being retrofitted with CNC for the first time. The tailored CNC control systems can also be integrated within all-new machines. Step Design's services range from design, specification and integration, through to installation, test and commissioning. Ongoing support can also be provided once the machine is operation.
CNC controls can be readily tailored, adapted or modified to suit a customer's particular application.
