    My first router/mill

    Hello!

    I am building my first cnc-router/mill. Started this project one year ago…I will use it for rapid prototyping. All I have left is to build the frame (have bought all other parts). I will really value your thoughts and opinions before I start to build the frame (see attachments). The frame will be made of steel. I have started to make a “dummy”-frame in wood for testing.

    Specs:

    Table size, 600x500 (including 11 position ATC)
    Travel, 530x530x300 (X,Y,Z)
    Maximum feed, 1000mm/s (X,Y), 500mm/s (Z)
    Controller, Fawoo FWMC-U200, four axes
    Servo motors, Mitsubishi HC-KFS43, 400W
    Servo amplifier, Mitsubishi MR-J2S-40A, 400W
    Linear rails, THK SHS20 820mm and 1000mm, SHS20LV blocks
    Ball screws, NSK 20x20x540mm
    Support for ball screws, THK BF15 and BK15
    Coupling, Multi-beam
    Spindle, Kavo 4041, 500W, 5000-50000rpm
    Hf Converter, Kavo 4442
    Z-axis, Parker 406XR
    Countering force, Festo DGP-25-PPV-A-B
    Table, Witte alufix

    Jakob,
    You are using quality parts, the design looks fairley typical but well thought out, should make for a very nice piece of equipment.

    I have started to make a “dummy”-frame in wood for testing.
    I like this idea, gives you a chance to make changes to the final fabrication as improvements are discovered in the dummy build up. Not many seem to do this but I think it is a smart move.

    Yes,

    A nice set of CAD illustations. Looks very well thought out.

    Also a nice list of components, should be the business.

    Can you please expand on the table details. Witte alufix ?

    Cheers

    Hello Santiniuk,

    “Witte Alufix is a modular fixturing system made out of high-tensile aluminium for measuring fixtures, checking gauges, assembly or welding fixtures, cubings, gages ....
    It is also used for setting up prototypes, stereolithography and design development.”

    I bought it used and thought it would be nice for setting up work pieces in the router!

    I wasn’t 100 percent satisfied with my first design so I started from the beginning again! Do you like the new design? Does it have any disadvantages? From the beginning I had imagine to have the fourth axis on the table but now it is on the Z-axis. Please feel free to comment.
