new 4896 4x8 machine now available! 03-Feb-2016
After much testing and refining, our 4896 4x8 machine is finally available. it features side mounted drive motors on each gantry side that pull the gantry along a single length of 5/8" heavy duty s3m kevlar reinforced timing belt for a shorter belt length and greater rigidity. all of our machines now feature the heavier duty belts, and all machines except for the 1216 now have larger rails, thicker 1" gantry uprights, a wider beefier head with larger rails with greater rail spacing and thicker material, home switches, z axis counterbalance spring, and various other rigidity upgrades.
