The Vega MX2 CNC is a high-speed, Windows-based CNC that incorporates the latest CNC technology including high-speed block processing alogrithums and an integrated acceleration/deceleration interpolator with block look-ahead. This technolgoy means that part programs can be run at higher feed rates while producing smoother contours, better part surface finishes and keeping closer tolerances, even on older machines, the company says. The CNC includes a straightforward user interface and has a host of features that enhance both manual and CAD/CAM-generated programs.
