Digitizer Conversion
« on: September 21, 2008, 02:11:40 PM »
Hi All

Here is a digitizer that I purchased in the 1990's. Unfortunately the computer that had the drive card (Galil DMC 630) and dongle that drove the software was stolen from my factory. The card could have been replaced but the software that was supplied by Renishaw was prohibitively expensive +- 8000 British pounds.

I now intend to turn it into a router to make patterns for my foundry.

I will fit a new Z axis to the machine on which I will mount a 1kw Highspeed electric Router. The motors which are dc servo are most probably  0.375 kw they are quite small and fit in the palm of my hand.

My question is are these motors big enough to drive a 1Kw Spindle considering that I would only be taking a small depth of cut  +-3mm at a time.
