GSK988TA TURNING CENTER CNC CONTROLLER
GSK988TA includes GSK988TA-H from CNCmakers are new CNC controllers for slant bed CNC lathe and turning center, adopt micro processor of
400MHz high performance, and it can control five feeding axes (including C axis), two analog spindles,
real-time communication between GSKLink serial bus and servo unit, the adapted servo motor adapts
encoder of absolute type in high resolution, realize position of 0.1um, and satisfy the requirements of
combined processing of turning and milling in high precision. GSK988TA and GSK988TA-H is equipped with internet interface,
and it supports remote monitor and file transmission and satisfies the requirements of internet education
and workshop management. GSK988TA and GSK988TA-H are the best choice for slant bed CNC lathe and turning center.

List of G Codes
Communication Software PLC and Ladder Diagram Editing Software
The communication software GSKComm and PLC ladder diagram editing software GSKLadder of GSK988TA
are all run in WINDDOWS98 /2000/XP. User can edit part program on PC, upload and download files of
part program, parameter, tool compensation and thread compensation, etc between PC and CNC,
as well as DNC real-time processing. The machine manufacturer can edit the ladder diagram on
GSKLadder of PC, upload and download PLC program between PC and CNC also.
Remote Monitor Software: GSKMonitor
GSKMonitor runs under WIN98/2000/XP, and remote helps and monitors GSK988TA through LAN interface.
Servo State Diagnosis And Monitor
Through GSKLink, GSK988TA realizes diagnosis and monitor of servo state(command position, feeding position, motor
speed and motor current, etc.)
