The head also features a tilt mechanism that allows movement right to left of up to 90°.







The integrated glass scale provides quill position to the operator display screen and makes set-up and operation smooth and easy. Besides displaying the position of the quill, the scale also allows you to set tool length offsets by simply lowering the quill to the top of the part and pressing enter. Other useful functions include quill movement check which will stop execution of the program in the event the quill moves during cutting operation.
