The Fagor 8055 control makes this machine perform like a new model with custom, easy-to-use machining cycles like bolt hole, counter bore, back bore, circle, and other geometric designs at a fingers touch.   Machinists find this control easy to understand and easy to use - even if they come from a Fanuc or Siemens background!
