DP-4 Touch Probe with Probing Cycles
The DP-4 touch probe is used to quickly setup your fixtures and parts. Our state-of-the-art DP-4 touch probe is extremely accurate and has a very light trigger force so any rigid surface that will withstand a few PSI of pressure can be digitized. Probing accurately sets zero points, finds edges, center locations of bosses and bores, edges of slots and webs and more. You’ll never have to spend 30 minutes using a center finder to locate the center of a bore again. The Ajax probe will find and set the center of a bore in just seconds. And it is accurate down to a tenth! Requires Internal Digitizing Cable.

DXF File Import
This option eliminates the need for expensive CAM programs by directly accepting any standard DXF file from your favorite CAD program. All of the programming is conversational, just like our user-friendly Intercon. more
DXF File Import $305




Coordinate System Rotation (CSR)

This option is made specifically for the machinist who is constantly breaking down and setting up new fixtures and vises. By simply touching off two points along the edge of your fixture, the control will automatically rotate the axes to match your fixture saving you time and money.
Coordinate System Rotation $220




Automatic Tool Length Measurement (TT-1)

click for
larger image
This very accurate tool setter plugs into your control and will automatically and quickly measure and set tool lengths. The control automatically seeks the TT-1 with the tool and measures the tool length to whatever the accuracy of your machine is, usually within a tenth! This method is much faster and more accurate than the old piece of paper technique. If you are constantly changing tools to machine different types of parts you need this option. It will pay for itself in no time. Requires Internal Digitizing Cable.
TT-1 $725

AjaxCNC recommends the following software (available separately):

For Mills: Vectric Cut2D

For Routers: Vectric VCarve Pro

Spindle “S” Function

larger image
This option gives you fully programmable spindle speed by controlling an inverter, or VFD. You will be able to assign specific speeds and directions for every tool in your library ensuring you get the most out of every tool and the best possible surface finish. You will even have spindle speed control on the fly while running a program.
Included Free with all kit purchases.
Rigid Tapping

This option frees you from the cumbersome and sometimes inaccurate methods of tapping with floating and reversing tapping heads. You not only get standard rigid tapping, but also have the option of rigid peck tapping. Both the Spindle “S” function option and a spindle-mounted encoder are necessary for rigid tapping.
Rigid Tapping $550




Unlimited File Size (4MB+)

click for
larger image
As of version 2.68 software and newer, the AjaxCNC control comes standard with a 4MB part program size capacity (Previously 1MB). While most part programs are less than 4MB, if you need to run a file larger than 4mb, UFS allows you to run any size program you wish, being limited only by the size of your hard drive. You’ll never have to drip feed or break up a part program again.
Unlimited File Size $550




Scaling & Mirroring (G51)

click for
larger image
This G code is usually not necessary for Intercon and CAD/CAM users, but is nice to have, especially for the scaling of 3D parts. You won’t ever have to go back and repost the part program to make a scaling change. The G51 command can be added in the part program at any point.
Scaling & Mirroring $220




Extended Multiple Work Coordinate Systems (WCS)

click for
larger image
Note: 6 WCS (G54 – G59) are included standard. This Extended WCS option gives you 12 additional individual part zero positions, for a total of 18. Each zero point can be adjusted at any time. The control remembers the positions so there is never a need to reset, even in the event of a power loss.
Extended Multiple Work Coordinate Systems $305




Sub-programs & Macros (M98 & G65)

click for
larger image
While this option is usually not necessary for Intercon and CAD/CAM users, it gives G-code programmers the ability to not only call on sub-programs, but also to create many specialized operations. These specialized operations include programming with conditional statements such as IF, THEN, GOTO. You can also process numerical statements within a line of code for operations like indexing a serial number across many parts.
Included Free with all control kit purchases
