What is a CNC Machine for Routing?

Computer numerical control (CNC) machines use software that converts computer code into electrical signals that power motors, which power spindles that cut along axes. Some CNC routers have as few as two axes, while others have as many as five. What most woodworkers look for in CNC routers is cutting accuracy. But this is not their only benefit. They can also make cuts in one pass that would require a traditional router to make several passes. CNC technology is a fairly recent invention in the history of woodworking. But it is one that many machine based woodworkers can no longer do without.

Considerations for Buying a CNC Router

There are several considerations for buying a CNC router, particularly: number of axes, size, and whether to buy a new router or a used one. What is a CNC machine that will meet your needs, is a question determined in part by these considerations.

Number of axes

Unlike traditional routers, CNC routers can cut with increased speed and accuracy due to their number of axes. However, a 5-axis router is not necessarily superior to a 3-axis or 4-axis router. The number of axes you need depends on the number required to accomplish the right cuts. For some types of work, such as rapid prototyping, a 4-axis or 5-axis router is required. But for most woodworkers, a standard 3-axis router is sufficient.

RT Machine carries new and used routers with the axis options that professional woodworkers need. In stock as of June 2011, the Komo Model Mach One Innova 408 CNC Router is an excellent choice for a woodworker with 3-axis routing needs.

Size

Here, size refers to the width of a router’s table. A width of 5’ x 10’ is roughly average for an industrial model, although routers with dimensions of 15’ x 100’ and beyond are also available. In stock as of June 2011, the Northwood Model Nestech 105 CNC Router is an excellent choice for a 5’ x 10’ table width.

Used versus new

A new router is preferable to a used one, but choosing the latter can save on cost without diminishing performance. In addition to costing less than new industrial routers, used routers can perform just as well. RT Machine carries a variety of used industrial CNC routers. The Komo Model Mach One Innova 408 CNC Router and the Northwood Model Nestech 105 CNC Router are two examples.
