I am in the process of CNC'ing my C3 lathe and am looking for an encoder to sync my leadscrew with the spindle. I am hoping to use either Turbocnc or Mach for threading. Can anyone recommend what type of encoder to use?
I am currently looking at the index pulse card from CNC4PC.com. Will this be sufficient? What is a VFD with encoder? Is it the same as the index pulse card? Thanks in advance.
