...if you can imagine it, you can create it with the Laguna 4-Axis CNC Turner
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
The earth spins on its axis, while this remarkable new CNC offering from Laguna Tools turns on four of them! This is a true 4-Axis Turner offering woodworking professionals and serious hobbyists many of the same specifications found on Laguna Tools' much larger CNC machines, yet only in a smaller package at a very affordable price. The Laguna CNC 4-Axis Turner made its debut at the IWF Show on August 22, 2012, bringing a new sensation to CNC machinery.
“It truly is the best of both worlds,” said Torben Helshoj, President of Laguna Tools. “Not only does it require a very conservative footprint (36” x 80” with 13" of Z travel at 10" diameter on A axis), but this beautifully engineered piece of equipment enables woodworkers to literally create anything they envision – from intricately carved gun stocks and wood turnings to claw foot legs with mortiseand-tendon joints. Basically, if you can imagine it, you can create it with the Laguna 4 Axis CNC Turner. Even flat stock can be easily processed by simply removing the turner attachment.”
The Laguna 4-Axis CNC Turner is also available in a “two-up” version with two spindles and two rotary axis for even higher turning productivity, and woodworkers will appreciate the “ease-of-use” of the Austrian-made Laguna CNC Touch Controller from B&R Automation. “We’re very proud of the control system, which we developed in cooperation with B&R,” said Helshoj. “Our customers say it’s the easiest, most intuitive control package they’ve ever used.”
Helshoj points out that its non-Windows®-based operating system eliminates the problems associated with Windows-based systems. “Our customers love it, because it means trouble-free operation with no security nightmares,” he said, “You can also easily run remote diagnostics via the Internet or PC. In fact, these machines can actually be operated with a mounted touchscreen or through VNC-linked laptop, Netbook, Smart Phone or your iPad.”
According to Helshoj, the Laguna 4 Axis CNC Turner is ideal for teaching environments, since the instructor can monitor several machines at the same time from a desktop computer. “And let’s not forget that transferring a file is as easy as placing it on a USB flash drive or transferring the file across a network through a program such as Filezilla.” Other features include an IP65 sealed, dust and waterproof touchscreen, and components that are all UL, CSA, CRU and CE rated. “We’re also very proud of the outstanding customer service we provide before, during, and after the sale,” he says. “Our technology brings customers in… but it’s our customer service, along with our innovative equipment, that keeps them coming back.”
