The 4th axis rotary table on the BT/1212 is designed so that you use this to do “wrapping” tool paths. This means that the file is designed as a regular, flat, 3-axis file which is scaled so that the width matches the circumference of round stock. Then, instead of cutting flat, the rotary is substituted for the Y axis and the cut follows the circumference of the stock, as if it is being “wrapped” around it.


The hand-held controller is the heart of the operational system. This hand-held controller redefines the phrase “easy-to-use”. Customers can be up and running the same day power is connected to the machine. The setup introduction manual provides information that will have users cutting parts in minutes.


Techno CNC Systems new stable extruded aluminum machine stand allows their customers to easily move their CNC engraving machine with ease while still maintaining the machine’s rigidity during the cutting process. The heavy duty 80 mm square aluminum extruded frame is light weight, yet robust, and embodies the supportive features of an all steel base stand at a fraction of the cost. A 3/4" polypropylene top deck provides a workspace for the CNC machine tools, making for a convenient work bench local to the Techno CNC machine. The new extruded machine stand includes four heavy duty casters, two with locks. This allows the machine to be transported around the facility, then locked and secured in the location when the machine is in operation. While functionally convenient, this custom machine stand has the ability to aesthetically augment any professional production shop.
