1: New USA made Taig 2019CR-ER Cnc Mill This is the bigger taig mill

1 year warranty on mill and electronics, no return accept

This includes 6 ER16 collets ( 1/16, 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 ) a Vise, and 2 End mills (1/8 & 3/16 inch) .

The Knob on the shaft (on the picture) is not included any more

This is a very robust and heavy machine 110 pounds of shipping weight

2: The controller features a 10 microstepping Gecko G540 stepper driver running at 48volts, 7.3A

Why is 48volts volts so important? Faster rapids and more power

Why is microstepping so important? Real smooth cuts

Mid-band resonance compensation

– Auto standby current (70% current)

– Short-circuit protected

– Optoisolation on all LPT signal pins

– Two 1A at 0 to 50VDC rated outputs

– Four SPST to GND inputs (TTL)

– TRIM adjust for motor smoothness

– Easy to service, removable drives

– 10kHz watchdog timer (charge pump)

Stepper motors feature:

  1. Low inductance: NEMA 270oz bipolar stepper motors for x, y, z

  2. They produce quick rapids for faster production time
