This Could Change DIY CNC In A Big Way!

| September 28, 2016

I was hesitant to title this with “This Could Change DIY CNC In A Big Way”.  Largely because it’s too limiting a title.  This could change a lot more than just DIY CNC.  It can change small business, retrofit of older machines, production CNC and more.  In the near future we might be done fighting the PC based DIY and production CNC controllers.  No more boat anchor PC’s running Windows XP.  No more parallel port shenanigans. Sounds dreamy right?  Enter the Masso from Hind Technology.  They come from a land down under and have a very slick product.  The Masso is as close to a “one size fits all” CNC controller as I’ve ever seen.  I was able to get my hands on an early, pre-production model and was very impressed with the fit, finish, size and features.  The Masso replaces the PC.  It has tons of I/O for connecting it to tool changers, VFDs and even automatic lubrication systems.  Features you don’t typically see in the DIY world.  The Masso has software options that allow it to control CNC plasma systems, lathes, 3 ,4 and 5 axis machines. The Masso is currently  on Kickstarter.  The company is looking to get enough interest to get a large production run produced. The Kickstarter page and company website also have tons of documentation and information. There’s only 25 days left on the campaign as of this posting so act fast if this is something you’re interested in.
