Granite devices Servo drives - significant new feature!

We have some very exciting news, I believe it will have significant implications for many CNC machine builders:

Granite Devices' VSD-E and VSD-XE are also designed to drive two independent axis with one drive using DC servos.

This means you could build a lathe with only one drive! Or a 3 axis mill or router with a DC servo spindle motor with 2 drives. How about a 4 axis machine with two drives? Many routers use dual motors for the long axis - you could drive both with one drive, and another drive for the Y and Z axis.

Now for a similar price to stepper systems, you can have the speed and power of a servo setup, and no more lost steps.

This new functionality will be implemented by way of new, free firmware - all existing VSD-E and VSD-XE drive owners can upgrade to the new firmware too. We're expecting this release very shortly.

You can order the VSD-E or VSD-XE at our shop - www.zealcnc.com

We're also offering free worldwide shipping on all servo drives until the end of March, so if you're thinking of buying drives soon, be sure to order before April!
