CNC Mill System (5600)
The CNC Mill can machine pieces of soft materials such as plastic and wax, as well as harder materials such as aluminum, mild steel, and brass.It consists of a milling table, a headstock carrying the spindle motor, and a cast-iron vertical column with dovetail slide.
The CNC mill is mounted on a solid steel chassis and is equipped with R8 tooling. The stock to be milled is secured in a vise that holds it to the milling table.
Two ball screws, each driven by a stepper motor, are used to move the table along the X axis (left and right) and Y axis (backward and forward) to feed the stock through the periphery of the end mill.
A third ball screw, also driven by a stepper motor, is used to move the headstock along the Z axis (up and down) for positioning the end mill.
The speed of each stepper motor can be programmed separately for feed rates up to 508 mm/min (20 in/min). A 746-W (1.0-hp) constant-torque DC motor rotates the spindle at speeds programmable up to 3400 rpm.
The end mill can be changed to accommodate different stock materials and milling designs.
