  • Footprint: 108” x 60”
  • Motors: 4 wire bipolar 425 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 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 400 inches per minute travel. 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 hobbyists and professionals alike.  you can cut hardwoods, plywoods, plastics, and even aluminum with the proper bit, rpm, feedrate, and depth of cut. 


  • Improvements: thicker 1" gantry uprights. 1" wider head assembly with wider rail spacing and thicker material. larger rails. cable carrier. home switches, and various other rigidity improvements. 
  • Constructed of extremely durable HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) with 1/2"  Baltic Birch top supported with steel tubing
  • 4 wire bipolar 425 ounce/in Nema-23 motors on y and z axis, and 2 425 ounce/in. nema 23 motors driving the gantry. 
  • heavy duty 5/8" wide Kevlar-reinforced urethane s3m timing belts on all 3 axes (X axis is driven by two motors and belts)
  • Linear motion system with ball bearings preloaded on 1.75 " square 1/8" thick walled steel tubing on Y axis and 3.0" square steel tubing on X axis for ultra smooth motion with zero slop.
  • X and Y axis have strip brushes to keep the rails clean and smooth. z axis has rubber seals
  • Z-axis features beefier 20mm rails with recirculating linear bearings
  • 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.
  • Requires some assembly.  the gantry comes assembled, and the rest of the machine is sub assemblies that are easily bolted together. 
  • 1-year warranty on manufacturer's defects. (Does not cover abuse) Replacement parts available.
  • 14-day satisfaction guarantee. Just return undamaged for a full refund (minus shipping)


Spindle Mounts

There are several spindle mount options for the Zenbot 4846. We have mounts for the Hitachi M12vc, bosch 1618/1617, Dewalt 611, Rotozip RZ10/RZ20/RZ5, the Bosch Colt, the , 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 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 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.
