ATLAS SERIES CNC ROUTER
The Atlas Series CNC Router is manufactured using the highest quality industrial grade CNC router components with all steel construction with a 7-1/2” gantry clearance and 11-1/2” z-axis stroke, so the clearance can be properly utilized. Key features include THK linear guide rails and bearings, precision helical rack and pinion with precision gear motors directly coupled to the helical pinion. The Atlas series includes a 4 HP HSD collet spindle, vacuum hood with concentrated air flow at the tool, and a vacuum t-slot table controlled by a central gate valve.
- 4′ x 4′, 4′ x 8′ and 5′ x 10′ stock sizes (Special sizes available upon request.)
- 4 HP HSD high-frequency collet spindle
- Maintenance free brushless stepper drive motors
- Vacuum table with main control gate valve
- Easy to use hand-held controller (optional PC based system available)
- Open architecture works with all industry standard CAD/CAM software
The base frame is fabricated from heavy-duty tubular steel that is welded, stress relieved and precision machined so that the foundation remains true and steady over the operational life of the machine
The gantry is constructed of tubular steel with reinforcing ribs, welded throughout the length of the column, which results in a steady firm beam assembly. This quality engineering and workmanship result in smooth precision cutting.
The Atlas machine comes standard with a 4 HP HSD high frequency collet spindle. These precision spindles require no maintenance, use industry standard ER collets, fully programmable speeds from 6000 to 18000 RPM, and comes complete with vacuum hood and wrenches.
The hand-held controller is the heart of the operational system. This hand-held controller redefines the phrase “easy-to-use”. Customers can be up and running the same day power is connected to the machine. The setup introduction manual provides information that will have users cutting parts in minutes.
The vacuum plenum table surface is single-zoned which is controlled via main gate valve. The table can be zoned by easily moving gasket around to customize specific sections. Gasketing can also be routed to accommodate various material sizes and styles
DRIVE TRAIN ASSEMBLY
The Techno Atlas CNC Router uses precision helical gear racks on the X and Y axes. The mounting of the rack is inverted to help keep dust and debris from building up on the drive system and this assures smooth motion and long term reliability. The precision gearbox is directly coupled to the stepper motor and pinion. This eliminates belt stretch inaccuracies, assuring high-speed machining while the system positions the spindle accurately.
Automatic tool calibration pad allows for easy and accurate “Z” zero position.
The gantry uprights are cast iron with heavy duty gussets formed into the casting. Each support is machined for housing the various drive assemblies including motors, bearings, belts, and wiring harnesses.
All the electrical components are housed and wired in a doubledoored Nema 4 electrical enclosure. This allows for easy access and service when needed. All wiring is tagged so that when service is required, the customer can easily navigate the cabinet. In addition, the cabinet serves as a work bench for the tools required
