Today's Deep Dive: Change Up Your Manual Mill with ACU-RITE®: It just makes sense.
You might not realize the time, effort, precision & accuracy that occurs when you upgrade to an ACU-RITE® digital readout system, but the ROI makes it a must!
Upgrades are easy with Rossi Machinery Services. We are experts in all things machine tools, and ACU-RITE® digital readout systems are no exception.
Today, we talk DRO203, ACU-RITE's most popular system and here's why:
The DRO203 is very well suited for use on milling, drilling, boring and lathes with up to 3 axes. It is designed as a sturdy upright unit with splash-proof full-travel keypad for use in a workshop. It comes with a 7" TFT color screen for the position values, dialog, input displays, graphic functions, and the graphic positioning aid. See the figure below:
The DRO203 is distinguished by its conversational dialog guidance, making it easy to use! The distance-to-go display facilitates positioning tasks.
How does it work? You approach the next position quickly and reliably by simply traversing until the display reads zero. And the functions for the respective application are easy to activate via parameter input. Special functions are available for producing hole patterns. (Linear and circular patterns).

Finally you can easily switch between radius and diameter display when the position display is configured for turning. The digital readout also offers support for lathes with a separate top slide: the sum display feature allows you to display the saddle and top slides either together or separately. To set presets, simply touch the workpiece and freeze the tool position. Then retract and measure the workpiece with the tool out of the way!

We highly recommend all of ACU-RITE's Systems but particularly this one. We offer discounts on full systems and for schools there is a 35% off a full system.
