TP-100 3D contact probe with software interface included.
The DeskCNC machine controller includes probing software. The controller scans a 3D surface with the TP-100 probe, filters, smoothes, and then compensates for the probe tip diameter, before creating a 3D surface model saved in an .STL file format. The surface can be re-machined using the DeskCNC CAM, or the file may be imported into another Cad-cam system for further processing and combination with other design data. When not scanning surfaces, the probe can be used as a precision tool length measurement device with the included base and tool contact tip.
TP100 Tool Setter The TP-100 probe can also be used as a tool setter. The package includes a flat base and stylus that can be installed instead of the round shank and ruby tipped stylus. When configured as a tool setter, the DeskCNC software can measure tool lengths and automatically record them in the tool offset table.
Servo Driver The SV-500 servo driver is an inexpensive, 5 amp, 30 volt, closed loop servo driver board. It uses a TTL level quadrature encoder input, to control the position of a permanent magnet DC servo motor. The input to the driver board is step and direction signals. The driver control is implemented through a tuned PID loop. Speeds up to 250,000 steps per second can be achieved. The driver has a connector to provide inter-axis communication of fault condition, and they can also be jumpered for full quadrature (4x) or single slot precision. Specification Purchase Link
Servo Motors Globe servo motors are available with or without a timing belt pulley reduction drive. These motors are custom designed to match the DeskCNC, SV-500 servo drivers. Manufactured in USA, in Dothan, Alabama.
CNC Router IMService manufactures a complete CNC router. 12 x 12 x 4 inch travel with an assembled DeskCNC servo controller. The machine has a 55,000 steps per inch resolution and travels up to 90 inches per minute.
Sherline CNC lathes. IMService is an authorized Sherline Dealer. We can provide you with a Sherline CNC ready lathe and a DeskCNC servo Kit or assembled system to match. A lathe threading kit is also available. Bundled CNC lathes are discounted approximately 15%. The DeskCNC servo system runs the Sherline machines at 45 ipm. Lathe resolution is 112500 steps per inch.
Sherline CNC-ready mills and Ultimate machine shop bundles with tooling and accessories are available. A cnc-ready rotary 4th axis is also available. Mills and Ultimate machine shop packages are discounted approximately 15% from list prices when bundled with DeskCNC systems and servo kits. The DeskCNC servo system runs the Sherline machines at 45 ipm. Milling machine resolution is 112500 steps per inch.
Servo Systems. IMService has fully assembled
controller systems with a power supply, 2, 3, or 4 pre-wired servo drivers
installed, the DeskCNC controller, motors, cables and a software
license. These systems are sized to power Taig and Sherline CNC
ready mills, Sherline CNC ready lathes, small import lathes, mini and
micro import mills, and desktop CNC routers with up to 1 hp spindles and
30 x 30 table travel. They are also very well suited to 4 axis foam
cutting and 2 axis plasma and laser cutting tables. More
Component kits with 2, 3, 4, and 6 axis are available for assembly into custom designed systems. Kits include motors, DeskCNC software and controller, SV-500 servo drivers, shielded cables, schematics and power cables. Kit purchase link

Spindle Speed Controller interface board converts DeskCNC PWM signals to 0-10VDC analog signal. Fully opto-isolated signal with additional opto-isolated CW and CCW relay output with closure to ground circuits. Other DeskCNC relay signals are also available with direct wired terminal connections.
Relay output box rated 110vac 10 amps. Opto-Isolated dual circuit relay box. Plugs directly in to our System-3 and interconnects so that in the event of e-stop, power failure, or disconnection, the 110v circuits are disabled. Utilizes magnetic relays with snubbers to safely handle surge loads generated by switching inductive loads such as solenoids and motors.
Resistance Heater controller for commercial hot wire foam cutting machines. Dual circuit, variable voltage output box rated 115vac 10 amps. One circuit is 0-115vac and the other is 115 vac. Plugs directly into our System-3A and interconnects so that in the event of e-stop, power failure, or disconnection, the 110v circuits are disabled. The heater voltage is controlled by g-code, S commands, on screen slider, or MDI commands.
