Dual Head CNC Wood Router

Dual Head CNC Wood Router

A dual head CNC wood router is a type of computer numerical control (CNC) machine specifically designed for woodworking tasks. It features two cutting heads or spindles that can work simultaneously or independently, allowing for increased productivity and versatility in woodworking projects.

Dual Head CNC Wood Router

Dual Head CNC Wood Router is a fully automated machining unit that is commonly used in woodworking applications to precisely cut or engrave designs on various types of low to high-density wooden materials. The dual laser head of this machine results in quick machining. It is provided with a CNC controller which makes it easier for a skilled operator to operate this machine. CNC routers are used for precision cutting, carving, and shaping of various materials, including wood. The dual-head configuration allows the machine to perform multiple operations simultaneously, increasing efficiency and reducing production time.

Feature and Benefit of a Dual Head CNC Wood Router

Dual Spindles

The machine is equipped with two cutting spindles that can hold different types of cutting tools or bits. This allows for simultaneous operations, such as cutting and carving, or the use of different tools for various tasks.

Increased Productivity

With dual heads, the machine can perform multiple operations at once, significantly reducing the overall processing time. It is especially useful for large-scale production or projects that require repetitive tasks.


The ability to switch between different cutting tools or bits provides versatility in woodworking applications. For instance, one spindle can be used for rough cutting or material removal, while the other can be used for fine detailing or intricate carving.

Efficient Workflow

Dual head CNC routers can optimize the workflow by performing complementary tasks simultaneously. For example, one spindle can cut the outer shape of a wooden piece, while the other spindle can hollow out the interior, resulting in a more efficient and precise process.

Customization and Flexibility

The dual head configuration allows for customization according to specific project requirements. You can adjust the distance between the spindles to accommodate different sizes of workpieces, or even use only one spindle if needed.

Time and Cost Savings

By reducing the overall production time, a dual head CNC wood router can help save costs associated with labor and material waste. It also minimizes the need for additional machinery or manual operations, leading to improved efficiency.

How does the CNC Wood Router work?

By using CAD or CAM software, the design and typesetting are carried out on the computer, and the generated information is automatically transmitted to the controller of the CNC wood router by the computer. Then the controller converts the information into a power signal (pulse train) which can drive the stepper motor or servo motor and controls the movement path of the X, Y and Z three axes of the CNC wood router host.

The high-speed spindle on the wood router machine, connected with the bits(cutting tools) suitable for processing the specified materials, then processing the material which fixed on the worktable, the parts designed in the computer will be processed by automatic processing.

CNC Wood Router includes 3-axis CNC Wood Router, 4-axis CNC Wood Router, 5-axis CNC Wood Router, and CNC machining centre with automatic tool changer.

What’s the worktable size of the CNC Router?
2×2, 2×3, 2×4, 4×4, 4×6, 4×8, 5×10 and 6×12 in feet;
16×16, 16×24, 24×24, 24×36, 24×48, 48×48, 48×96, 60×120, 80×120, and 80×160 in inch;
4040, 6040, 6060, 6090, 1212, 1218, 1224, 1325, 1530, 2030 and 2040 in milometer.
Of course, the worktable size can be customized as your requirements.

How to choose a suitable CNC Wood Router?
1. Working table size:
The dimension of the worktable is very important because it is related to the size of the raw material and/or the number of parts that must be cut in a certain time.

2. Spindle:
The spindle’s working mode and power are very important for the CNC milling machine. Generally, the spindle is divided into two parts. One is the water-cooled spindle and the other is the air-cooled spindle. The proper spindle is selected, depending on the temperature of your material and the weather in your country or region.

3. Cutting tools(CNC bits):
The selection of cutting tools(CNC bits) depends on the material and the process needed to be processed and is matched with the knife clamp and nut.

4. Control system:
Different axis numbers and processing materials correspond to different control systems. Reliability, effectiveness, stability, and user-friendliness should be considered.

5. Rack guide rail:
According to the material quality of processing parts, four factors, speed, stiffness, bearing capacity, and tool life, are considered.

6. Servo motor:
It is related to material quality, frequency, efficiency, load, and machining accuracy.
