Warco Digital Readout DRO Counter - 2 Axis or 3 Axis


Special introductory price!

All new Warco digital readout system for lathes and milling machines.

In response to customer demand for a low cost self-install DRO, we're proud to be introducing this all new designed system, with all the features of much more expensive systems at a much lower price.

We recently did a low key pre-launch this product to certain customers without any publicity, and we've been super impressed with the feedback and simple word of mouth demand the release generated so quickly.

Now tried, tested, approved and made publicly available, this system is quickly finding its way into engineers' workshops up and down the country and becoming the new standard for small to medium sized Warco machines.
