Only the best brands in CNC controllers

Get more for less!!

As a CNC controller is the heart of a production machine, reliability is the most important factor today.

Robotturn® selected the 3 most reliable suppliers on the market today to serve our robotized turning cells. Fanuc and Siemens as the most sold controllers in the world and Syntec as the best value in the market, fully stuffed with all the thinkable options.

Our Standard machines are equipped with the high speed Syntec TA controller with 500/1000 block ahead reading function, all turning cycles, high speed computing, graphical interface, mechatrolink® serial bus, etc. Syntec, based on long term OEM production for major Japanese CNC makers, offers a reliable high quality and a great value for money CNC package, including many more options than any other maker for which you must not pay extra.

We defined that ANY machine operator should be able to use our Robotturn.

Our concept is meant to make turning more accessible, profitable and affordable.

Extended Controller specifications

What does this button do on my robot controller?

Is this your operator's daily problem?

Is this not a question your machine operator is daily confronted with?

Perhaps you recognize the complex controller shown here?

Perhaps you find it scary to look at, let alone interact with?

It clearly radiates a complex and technical nature of interaction and understanding.

You most likely need extensive training to control that thing - right?

Time for a change

Robot graphic HMI - Human Machine Interface

The complex pendant controller every robot maker is using is a huge bottleneck in most of the workshops.


The challenge for Us consisted of redesigning the interface of the Robot. Rather than a pendant with hundreds of unknown buttons, that has been the standard since forever, we took a very innovative decision to use an interactive touchscreen with very simple graphic interaction, to control the robot-loader and kept the Lathe controller as standard.

This means that the lathe can be used as standard CNC machine to make one single piece manually without interaction of the robot. All possible loading-unloading cycles are pre-programmed and the operator need only to fill in some of the values of the different stop/start points in the graphic interface. Simpler is not possible!

No robotics experience is required for the graphical robot controller. Our robot is already completely pre-programmed, so that the operator only needs to enter a few parameters.

This means a new series can be started in a matter of minutes.
