Our line of machinery can upgrade your manual lathes to CNC lathes with low upgrade cost and minimal time investment. The magic recipe of sharp carbide tooling and CNC motion control is key to creating precise cuts on old manual machinery.
An Optimized Turning Ecosystem
The core of the MultiForm system is a Raspberry Pi computer. Each device comes ready to use with our custom written Beryllium control software. Beryllium has been written from scratch, and we’ve completely re-imagined a CNC lathe controller for small parts. We use a “homeless” zero, so you can tuck this tool into the tightest of areas on your cross slide and not worry about extra switches, wiring, and complexity. The 7″ touch screen provides a clean interface that resists flying chips and cutting fluid. The MPG scroll wheel has adjustable jogging modes. Write your G-code to a .nc file and press “Cycle Start” to run the code. No complex G-code headers or functions are required – just use G1 straight line moves, and G2 / G3 arcs to create your profile. Alternatively, you can use our post processor for Fusion360 to output a tool path.
We believe the MultiForm System will be the perfect addition to your manual lathe and will generate new revenue from old machinery.

MultiForm Modular Tool Holders:
Beryl CNC is continually expanding its offering of tool holders for the MultiForm System. The latest innovation, a modular tool holder system, has recently passed its quality testing program. This system uses three specially modified 60 degree cone-point set screws to align and seat the pre-shimmed tool modules so you get repeatability of cuts every time.
