Servo Patriot Yields More Accuracy than Steppers While Promoting Safety in the Classroom
January 13, 2009—
Techno's Educational CNC Division is proud to introduce the Servo Patriot CNC Router, designed especially for technical education environments and recommended for grades 6 through college. The Patriot is capable of training students on prototyping and machining 3-D objects, and can ultimately take them from school to work. This compact machine comes completely enclosed with a safety interlocking mechanism that prevents operation of the machine unless the lock is activated; this promotes safety, minimizes noise and supports proper dust collection.
"We are very excited to introduce the Patriot into the educational market," says sales manager James Renner. "It is an exceptionally durable package that will enhance any classroom. Teachers will also receive local training, free technical support and free G-Code Servo Interface Software upgrades for the lifetime of the machine."
Techno's Patriot utilizes high-speed servomotors that provide users reliability and accuracy in every cut, unlike previous stepper motor-based systems that can lose steps and positions instantly. Lead ball screws on all three axes ensure maximum durability that will last the lifetime of the machine, even in the most demanding educational environment. Each Patriot comes CE certified for international safety approval, making it ready-to-ship anywhere within the U.S. or Europe.
