I’ve just come back from visiting the 114th Annual Canton Fair and while on the look for other products, I happened upon a brand new ZAY7045 mill (one of our favorite “starter” mills) with a powered table feed! While the table is now raised by a 6″ or so, it was cool to finally see a production powered table. Notice that the gearhead levers are no longer in front, but are now placed on the right hand side of the head with a very Deckel/Cincinnati style dial lever (very cool!). I was assured that while I didn’t see a powered head feed (my right arm is now MUCH stronger than my left ;), they can add it at the factory.
We will show more pictures of the fair and factory visits in the future. This is just a quick glimpse at at the now!
This is the full machine with a different control panel and smaller base/stand without drip/chip try.
Here are some of the controls. Note the three levers for X/Y and on/off.
We are currently working on bringing some interesting hobby-level products with serious prototyping and low-production level traits to the market. Stay tuned!
keep me posted please
