Does MASSO supply an THC to use with MASSO?

In the future, we will be adding a MASSO THC to the MASSO range, designed specifically to work with the MASSO CNC controller. At present, there is no scheduled release date.



Can I use Third party THC’s with MASSO?

MASSO uses any THC’s that outputs UP / Down and Arc OK signals such as the Proma150 or Price AVHC, any system able to provide these signals can be used with MASSO.
