Digital readout systems are now proving to be the most popular additions to Warco lathes and mills. This new Warco system is very precisely engineered, highly accurate and built to last.
Note: Almost sold out!
Special introductory price!
New Warco digital readout system for lathes and milling machines.
These DRO scales are glass optical and completely waterproof.
Advantage of compact width for unobtrusive installation on smaller machines, making installation straightforward, and maximizing travel on lathe and milling machines.
Combine with the separately available digital readout counters for a complete DRO system.
Supplied for self fitting.
Compatible with a wide range of different lathes and milling machines.
As every machine is different, these scales are provided with universal brackets that will require modification to fit your particular application.
Guide to the sizes recommended for Warco machines below.
|Model||Scale travel||Item No.|
*Assumes current version of WM14 with 500mm overall length table. Previous version was 400mm, so if you own one of these, subsitute 350mm longitudinal for 250mm (Item No. 5106).

Size guidance notes - if your machine is not listed above
You can calculate the scale size required by looking up or measuring your machine's cross, longitudinal or vertical traverse, depending on what you want to measure. Then select a corresponding scale size.
We generally round up where we don't have an exact match, in order to measure the full length of travel.
Using the WM16 as an example:
Equivalent scenarios to the above apply to lathes.
Remember, the key measurement to select a scale is traverse (ie the distance of travel) rather than overall length of the table/cross slide etc. Hence using the WM16 example above, overall table length is 700mm but the relevant measurement is the 485mm distance of travel.
We are happy to offer sizing advice for Warco machines - feel free to contact us if you need further guidance.
This DRO system will also work with mills and lathes from other manufacturers. While we are unable to help with specific size questions for non-Warco products, the information above will enable you to select the correct scales for your machine.
For machines requiring larger scales (for example lathes from the GH550 upwards or milling machines from GH Universal / VMC upwards), alternative heavy duty DRO scales available here.
