There will shortly be a new CNC machine (CNC router) on the market. Once that is Australian designed, and made as well.
Comes from a pretty interesting stable too – the same inventor behind the Torque Workcentre, and his company, YAS Engineering. Now Keith (for those that don’t know) is actually a specialist in CNC machines, and has been making custom builds for years from the small, to the very large. This design is one for production, rather than custom builds, and it is only about 6 weeks or so away from making the transition from prototype, to the first production machine.
And that machine will be making its way down to sunny Melbourne, to a modest shed that I am somewhat familiar with!
The bed on the CNC is 600x900mm, although the overall cutting capacity of the machine is more than that (yes, more, not less). That means it can work over the end of the bed, so working on the ends of boards etc will be possible.
Thinking Aspire would be the best product to get to really showcase the capabilities of the machine, rather than just sticking to VCarve. Have played with VCarve already, looking to jump to the next dimension (the third dimension) with my CNC routing!
More news as it comes to hand!
