Linux CNC (EMC) (the Enhanced Machine Control) is a software system for computer control of machine tools such as milling machines and lathes.
EMC is free software with open source code. Current versions of EMC are entirely licensed under the GNU General Public License and Lesser GNU General Public License (GPL and LGPL)
It can simultaneously move up to 9 axes and supports a variety of interfaces.
The control can operate true servos (analogue or PWM) with the feedback loop closed by the EMC software at the computer, or open loop with "step-servos" or stepper motors.
Motion control features include: cutter radius and length compensation, path deviation limited to a specified tolerance, lathe threading, synchronized axis motion, adaptive feedrate, operator feed override, and constant velocity control.
EMC runs on Linux using real time extensions. Support currently exists for version 2.4 and 2.6 Linux kernels with real time extensions applied by RT-Linux or RTAI patches.
Linux EMC is completely compatible with our stepper motor drivers / Curvecut / MeshCam etc
