5 Tips When Buying a CNC Router

1 Motor type: There are two main types of motor that are used in CNC router. A stepper motor is cost-effective and suitable for high-torque, low-medium velocity applications. Servo motors are designed for fast, high-torque applications.

2 Automatic Tool Changing System (ATC): If you are using more than one instrument, the ATC helps users change apparatuses easily, which reduces employment times and administrator slip.

3 Dust collection: The nemesis of any work station, some CNC routers can produce a lot of dust. You need a good vacuum system that will adequately meet your needs.

4 Software: The programming of your CNC router is important if you want the product to meet its precise configuration. Make sure you include updates when they are made available.

5 Drive system: ballscrew, rack and pinion and lead screw are the three main drive frameworks on a CNC router. While the ballscrew iteration is the more costly out of the three, it can handle big material sizes and yields better accuracy.
