Today Granite Devices turns 11 years! Our team of 8 people thank all our community members for making this journey so awesome!
In the other news, we have just released the first open beta version of Mach4 Granite Devices motion control plugin. All CNC users out here, welcome to test it with your IONI, ARGON and soon to be released ATOMI drives! Grab a free Mac4 plug-in download from our Wiki.Shortly put, the plug-in makes it possible to control drives straight from PC USB port. No middle-hardware or step pulse generators needed.
If you try it, drop a comment below, or at our community forum thread here.
Curious to learn what’s inside in the top-tier servo drives? Want to put your ideas in motion? Are you a natural born microcontroller hacker suited for the job?
In other words, we’re now hiring the best of the best hacker available to take a major role in servo drive firmware development. If your socks started spinning already, don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance and drop Granite Devices your CV now!
Earlier announced ATOMI is finally getting the focus it deserves! Now we have second revision boards under our scope for testing and firmware development. From initial tests, we can tell that we’re very close to the final design. At the moment it looks like we need only to change one resistor value on the PCB to make it final.
Four axis drive ATOMI boards along with 400W AC servo motor and IONI Pro HC drive
We can thank Esa Hippolin from the beautiful hardware design.
We’re proud to announce ATOMI, the revolutionary multi axis drive for CNC applications. It is a closed loop stepper drive that essentially turns stepping motors into servo motors. ATOMI gives the benefits of both worlds: reliability of servos and high torque of steppers.
ATOMI age is coming
ATOMI will be launched in the Indiegogo on Q2/2016. Stay tuned and grab the early bird specials!
Ps. it is largely based on IONI technology. IONI Pro will get all the same features than ATOMI through firmware upgrades.
