Zenbot Mini 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 Thomson brand hardened polished steel rails with super oilite self-lubricating bronze linear bushings. The drive system features kevlar-reinforced urethane timing belts on all 3 axes, resulting in ultra precise motion and blazing fast rapids (800 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.
What’s included with the machine?
What else will I need to purchase from Zenbot to operate the machine?
A spindle mount of your choice is included, however you will still need to purchase a spindle. The Zenbot Mini router is designed for lighter spindles such as the Dremel 300, proxxon ib/e, wolfgang engineering, etc.
Zenbot g540 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)
