Taktia Handheld CNC Demo

Company: Taktia LLC

Taktia will be demoing their handheld CNC router prototype, which was the subject of the cofounders’ research at MIT. Taktia equipped a standard handheld router with a means of knowing its precise location on a workpiece, and the ability to make corrections under computer control. The user, guided by a display, moves the tool to roughly follow a digital plan, and the tool makes minor adjustments to stay precisely on the plan. With this tool, an unskilled user can cut arbitrarily complex shapes out of wood, plastic, or sheet metal with an accuracy of 1/100th of an inch.
