C-Beam XLarge Machine Specs
- 750mm x 330mm (29.5” x 13”) X&Y axis cut area
Usable cut depth is dependent on how you mount your spindle/router, bit length used and spoil board height.
But as a ball park measurement you are looking at 1 inch (25mm) material. The Z working height is over 2 inches for deep carving
The physical footprint is 1000mm x 500mm (with the moving Y table protruding out about 170mm at full travel, front and back)
with the High Torque Steppers sticking out about 140mm from the frame at the back. Maximum Height ( Z-axis fully up) is about 630mm
- All the precise Acme Lead Screws are faced away from ﬂying chips to help keep them clean
- Outside mounted Xtreme Solid V Wheels™ used throughout for easy on machine adjustment, tuning and strength.
- Doubled up and adjustable Acme Nut blocks on Y and X axes with a Anti-Backlash Nut Block on the Z axis to reduce/remove backlash.
- Strong and accurate C-Beam™ and V-Slot™ Linear Rail with the new heavy duty C-Beam™ Gantry Plate XLarge used for all Actuators.
Openbuilds Router / Spindle Mount (71mm inside diameter) which works best with the Bosch Colt Router;
but with some additional shimming, it is also suitable for the Dewalt 611 Router and the 0.8kw Chinese Spindles (65mm diameter).
