Zenbot 1624 CNC Router


Description

  • Travels: X-16”, Y-24”, Z-4”
  • Table size: 30 5/8” x 20 5/8”
  • Footprint: 35 5/8” x 28”
  • Motors: 4 wire bipolar 285 ounce/in Nema-23

This rugged machine is made from HDPE with a proprietary linear motion system developed by Zenbot. The system features ball bearings preloaded on eloctroplated-zinc thick-walled steel rails. The result is a very stiff system with ultra smooth motion and zero slop. The Z-axis features 16mm hardened steel rails with linear bearings. The drive system features 3/8 inch wide kevlar-reinforced urethane timing belts on all 3 axes, resulting in ultra precise motion and blazing fast rapids (600 inches per minute). The entire machine is bolted together with allen-head machine bolts so every part is replaceable. The grid on the large stationary table makes workpiece alignment a breeze, and the matrix of steel 1/4-20 threaded inserts make it simple to fasten the workpiece to the table. This machine is ideal for making Pcb's (printed circuit boards), plaques, trophies, model airplanes, 3-d puzzles, picture frames, vacuum molding plugs, lighted lexan signs, business card holders as well as larger woodworking projects. Three-axis simultaneous smooth contouring enables the machine to be used as a subtractive rapid prototyping machine.

Features

  • Constructed of extremely durable HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) with Baltic Birch 3/4" 13-ply plywood top.
  • 4 wire bipolar 285 ounce/in Nema-23 motors
  • Kevlar-reinforced urethane MXL timing belts on all 3 axes
  • Linear motion system with ball bearings preloaded on 1.25 " square 1/8" thick walled steel tubing on X axis and 1.25" square steel tubing on Y axis for ultra smooth motion with zero slop.
  • X and Y axis have strip brushes to keep the rails clean and smooth.
  • Z-axis features 16mm hardened linear rail with recirculating ball linear bearings. Replaceable.
  • Matrix of threaded steel inserts in the table for convenient fastening of the workpiece.
  • Assembled entirely with steel bolts so all parts are replaceable.
  • All parts are cut on a professional CNC router to snap or press-fit tolerances to ensure proper fit and alignment.

Options

Spindle Mounts

There are several spindle mount options for the Zenbot 1624. We have mounts for the Rotozip RZ10/RZ20/RZ5, the Bosch Colt, the Hitachi M12vc, the Dremel 300, the Proxxon IB/E, and the Wolfgang Engineering spindle. Or if you already have a spindle and can provide dimensions, we can custom make a mount for you. Just specify which you would like when ordering.

Zenbot Gecko g-540 4 axis Control Box

To control the Zenbot, you will need several electronic components, including stepper motor drivers for each axis and a DC power supply. The Zenbot Gecko g540 4-axis Control Box combines each of these components into a single, pre-configured box. You also have a 4th axis driver so you can add a rotary 4th axis.  Just plug it in, and you're ready to run! Our power supply accepts all world power in and outputs the correct DC voltage. You will just need the proper plug adapter for your country (comes with a US plug)

Mach 3 Control Software

This software is easy to use, and there are many video tutorials at www.machsupport.com which guide you through installation, setup, and use. If you are new to CAD/CAM you will enjoy Mach-3's wizards, which guide you step-by-step through numerous operations such as text engraving, cutting a rectangular or circular pocket, or drilling a bolt pattern.
