Woodworking 4 Axis Rotary CNC Router MachineThorpe
The 4 axis CNC router is equipped with a right rotation axis, multi-purpose and cost-effective, which has both flat plate carving and column engraving functions. It is mainly used for 3D engraving process, wave board processing, wooden door processing, solid wood furniture carving, solid wood art mural carving, etc.
A 4-axis rotary CNC router is a computer-controlled cutting machine that features a rotary axis in addition to the standard X, Y, and Z axes of motion. The rotary axis, also known as the A-axis, allows the machine to rotate the workpiece being machined, enabling the machine to perform complex machining operations such as contouring, engraving, and indexing.
The machine is programmed using CAD/CAM software, which generates the tool paths and cutting instructions for the machine. The rotary axis can be programmed to rotate the workpiece at specific angles or continuously throughout the machining process, allowing for the creation of complex shapes and designs.
Description of the 4 Axis CNC Router
The 4-axis CNC router is a kind of wood engraving equipment specially designed for the processing of 3D wood workpieces, such as portrait Buddha statues, Roman columns and so on. Also, this engraving machine has an automatic tool change function. It adopts a linear automatic tool changer for tool shifting.
Features of the 4 Axis CNC Router with Rotary Axis
- ATC System for fast tool changing makes high production efficiency.
- The vacuum suction table is used to save time and fix the workpiece more firmly, which is suitable for the processing of wooden door processing and large plates;
- The bed of this machine adopts a new design, which is more convenient to transport.
- 4 Axis CNC router can swing spindle to make the complex engraving and carving in wood.
3 or 4 Axes: What’s Better?
If you’re looking for something with a little more capability than the average 3-axis CNC and you’re no stranger to the functions of CNC machining, a 4-axis machine is probably for you. However, if you’re just starting out in the world of CNC, consider a 3-axis router, as they tend to be much simpler and easier to operate.
4 Axis CNC router has an swing spindle. It can change the direction automatically during the machining process without stopping. The 4 Axis CNC router has a wide range of applications in furniture, advertising, mold, decoration, construction and other fields and industries. In terms of functions, it can cut, engrave, drill, mill and groove. In regard to materials, 4 Axisrouter can process various wood materials, plastics, stone, soft metals and composites.
