Thread: DRO kit for Myford S7 from Machine DRO
17/06/2020 08:53:18

"Alan, pinged over an email yes"

Received - much appreciated!

Hi Bill,

Thank you for buying one of our systems, you mentioned you purchased the system around 2 years ago, A lot has changed in that time we have invested in multiple Alu extrusion tool's over the last couple of years and continually adding to our hardware selection to try and cater for as many different machines as possible.

If you have any specific questions please send me images of where you are at on your install to my email below and I will discuss with our engineers – please include your postcode of where we shipped the system to so we can look up what DRO system you have

Carl - your Myford install looks great! Would love to use those images (and any others you can send me) on our social media?

Morning all,

We are seeing (along with a lot of other companies) major issues with MyHermes and have suspended using them until further notice.


We have 200+ and growing parcels that are effected and still awaiting for our account manager to advise how they are going to resolve this.

I bought what I considered the best - a Bridgeport BR2J2 Series 1 👍

Second that, with an M-DRO system on it of course

Hope everyone is safe and well!

Good morning,

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your Heidenhain DRO system

We can supply an adaptor with the round 9 pin connector, that will convert signal from the M-DRO optical or magnetic encoders to be compatible with the Heidenhain consoles. Please note this is not compatible with all Heidenhain encoders so we would need some further details from you.

If you wish to discuss further please contact us on 01992 455921 or
