Axiom question

Postby Larry Stobbs » Tue Jan 31, 2017 12:46 am

I see that the Axiom machines come with a pendent controller, does it come with control software loaded or do you have to purchase an additional software program to get it to run? If you have to buy software for this what would be a good choice?

DO NOT take what I say here as gospel. I am truly not positive.

I did look at the Axiom website and looked at the lowest end machine and at the highest end machine.

On the highest end - it looks like the controller is a HUST CNC controller. I have never heard of it before, but that doesn't mean much as there are many controllers out there that I have never heard of.

On the lowest end it appears that the hand held device IS the controller

It is a RICOCNC controller. Again never heard of it, and again that don't mean much.

Other than this - I have no knowledge of this machine.

Leo is correct. The pendants are what controls the machine. No PC, and hence no software.

I did call them today and they said the units I was looking at use a Richauto A-11 controller, any of you folks ever use one before. My only experience is with one of the old white CNC Sharks that had the controller loaded onto a laptop computer, is this type of pendent easy to operate? Does anyone know were I might be able to see a operating manual for this so I can see what I am looking at using? I don't want to buy a new machine and then find out its too complicated to get it to work using nothing but the pendent.

I have had an Axiom Pro 6 for over a year now. Bought one of the first ones sold. The pendent works fine and the only software you need is V-Carve or whatever you are going to use. One of the designers of the machine is owner of WOODWERKS in Columbus, Ohio. Very good people to deal with and very good support. If have anyt questions that I may be able to help you with just ask.
