If you’re considering adding CNC functionality to your woodworking, Rockler has just expanded your range of choices by adding four new AutoRoute CNC machines manufactured by Axiom Precision.
Axiom’s 4 Basic, 4 Pro, 6 Pro, and 8 Pro machines offer different working area capacities ranging from the 24- x 24-in. AutoRoute 4 Basic to the 24- x 48-in. AutoRoute 8 Pro. Each Axiom AutoRoute features precision ball screws, rigid steel frames and interlocking aluminum tables which are compatible with T-track accessories. In addition, integrated MDF spoil boards promise exacting precision, as they can be milled flat for true perpendicularity with the spindle. These premium-grade machines have liquid-cooled motors and are suitable for a wide range of projects, such as large signs, image reproduction, luthiery and parts fabrication. Their universal router mount accepts a wide range of common woodworking routers. Variable speed operation up to 24,000 rpm plus a 200 inch-per-minute maximum feed rate make them some of the most capable machines in their class.
Axiom AutoRoute models require operating software and drivers that are sold separately. An onboard USB port allows users to input their operating programs with a flash drive, which means the CNC doesn’t need to be tethered to a computer.
Prices for these CNCs start at $3,999 and can be ordered through Rockler’s website.
