CNC Milling: Shopbot

Cnc milling technology achieves professional results for woodworking, plastic and metal prototyping of parts.

It removes material from a piece using a hi-speed milling tool.

While simple 2D woodcutting can be easy, complex 3D cutting or working using plastics and metal can be more challenging.

Since this is a three-axis milling machine, it cannot produce parts with undercuts or two sides in one pass. By adjustment, parts can be worked from two or more sides to achieve 3D sculptures or complex mechanics.

The machine can produce the following: flat panel woodworking with joints and pockets, architecture model bases made in solid wood or foam, large foam moulds for pouring concrete or plaster, small aluminium or plastic parts for mechanisms.

Machining area:
2500 mm x 1500 mm (x, y)

Machining height:
280 mm. The maximum workable material is less and depends on tool length and the type of cut.

Spindle speed:
5000 - 15000 RPM.

Typical feed rates:
Woodworking: 1000 - 4000 mm/min
Aluminium and plastics: 400 - 1500 mm/min

Available mandrel diameters:
2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 8 - 12.7 mm

These are the sizes of tool shanks the machine can use.
