    DIY 5 axis big CNC Router Head/Head

    Hello to everyone. First, sorry for bad English. I am Arman from Armenia. Want to introduce my latest project - 5 axis CNC router with rotary head... Here is videos, later I will add pictures if interest...



    P.S. Could not add more than one video, so everybody can see other videos on my channel on youtube...

    Here are some pics so far...

    Wow, this looks great. What do you make with it? Is this your own design?

    Thank. I made this CNC for my friend. Hi is going to make mostly chair backs. And yes, this is my own design. I made this CNC 100% from scratch and alone. It was very hard...

    Agree with others,seriously impressive.Congratulations.
    Work area? Head design? -belt or gear drive,bearings.How long to build? Please show more pictures.
    Looks big enough to do car bodies(in sections) or similar.Amazing.
    Thanks for showing us.

    Work area is 3500*1800*600mm. B/C rotary head angles - 0/+500 degrees for C axis, -125/+125 degrees for B axis. I used two harmonic drive gearheads with 1/101 reduction. Have ordered them from china supplyer, and now I have problem with one of them, and the problem is vibration. The building process takes from me about 6 months. Here below more pictures of building process.

    Thats really Nice work - keep us posted if its working now - on production.
    Can you give us some more details on what servo motors you have used. and how much the ATC spindle cost you.

    I see how you determined the maximum height! What did you do to ensure the 4 rails on the long axis were aligned?

    Re: DIY 5 axis big CNC Router Head/Head

    building this... its more than a """DIY"" project..
    all i could say, if you invested this tremendous work, the height should be taller.. the 600 mm height sounds too little..

    either way , lowering the floor in the workarea, or raising the ceiling could be a viable solution..

    this machine worth more than a simple building, and works are dont coming as ""max 600 mm"""

    my another opinion, for chair backs... this machine too much.. , but you can build boathulls, or custom patterns for vehicle parts, like fenders.. this machine just too expenses for chair backs :-) mightbe some foampatterns for aircraft parts, like wings..

    skedram... very cool build we have get more photo of your 4, 5 th axis..

    I have been seriously thinking about building a 5 axis machine also, but have found very limited info/ no posts ... about setting up a atc spindle on cnczone with mach

    Can you share, with us the techincal details for the phnematic solinode and ie schematic the type valve you used etc how you wired it to the bob.. and perhaps a video showing how your atc phnematic and solenoid you used.

    Re: DIY 5 axis big CNC Router Head/Head

    Awesome work!
    What size servos motors did you use on all your axis?
    This is by far the coolest 5 axis machine built from scratch I have ever seen. I am in the middle of designing a 5-axis machine, still at least 2 months out before I start ordering parts. Thanks for the pics.

    The servos I used are Delta ASDA-B2 1Kw. ATC spindle is Chineese copy of HSD and costs to me is about 5000 dollars.

    Thanks. I agree with you about height, but all is done, and have what we have... So, maybe next time, if this next time will come...
    About building boathulls, or custom patterns for vehicle parts, I can say that our country is too small for that...

    I am far away now from this CNC, but will take more photos when able... You are right about limited info about ATC and so... I will give you all information you asked little later

    Oh, it's really amazing. You weld this big machine body by yourself? How you ensure levelness of this 5 axis cnc router
