zenbot 4848 cnc router
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 20mm rails with recirculating ball linear bearings. The drive system features 5/8" inch wide kevlar-reinforced urethane timing belts on all 3 axes, resulting in ultra precise 500 inches per minute travel. The entire machine is bolted together with allen-head machine bolts so every part is replaceable. the matrix of steel 1/4-20 threaded inserts make it simple to fasten the workpiece to the table. This machine is ideal for hobbyists and professionals alike. you can cut hardwoods, plywoods, plastics, and even aluminum with the proper bit, rpm, feedrate, and depth of cut. Full simultaneous 3 axis contouring is a breeze.
There are several spindle mount options for the Zenbot 4848. We have mounts for the the Hitachi M12vc, the bosch 1618/1617 (or other 3.5" diameter routers), the Dremel 300, the Proxxon IB/E, Rotozip RZ10/RZ20/RZ5, the Bosch Colt, 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 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)
