The Atlas Series
Unparralleled Cut Quality and Efficiency
The Atlas Series machine is all steel construction providing the rigid foundation required for ultra-smooth routing results. The Atlas machine includes a 4HP HSD collet spindle. This CNC router model includes a dust hood that has concentrated air flow at the cutter, which provides optimal dust collection performance. The multi-zone vacuum t-slot table is constructed from very hard Phenolic, which is very stable material, and holds tight tolerances for precision cutting. The Atlas Series is connected to a 10HP Rotary vane vacuum pump, which has very quiet operation (82db). The Atlas series is powered by brushless drive motors, and is controlled via easy to use and learn hand held controller.

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, come fully programmable speeds from 6000 to 18000 RPM, and come complete with a vacuum hood and wrenches.
Drive Train Assembly
The Atlas 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. This assures smooth motion and long term reliability. The precision gearbox is directly coupled to the drive motor and pinion. This eliminates belt stretch inaccuracies, assuring high-speed machining while the system positions the spindle accurately LEARN MORE
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, and wiring harnesses.
The Atlas comes standard with a multi-zone phenolic vacuum t-slot table which is controlled via electro-pnuematic valves. The table can be easily customized by rerouting gasketing to section off specific areas.
The Atlas Series CNC Router utilizes brushless motors and drives. These motors require no regular maintenance — therefore, reducing any maintenance downtime.
Automatic tool calibration pad allows for easy andaccurate “Z” zero position.
All the electrical components are housed and wired in a doubled-doored Nema 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.
The Hand-Held Controller
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. Every controller has very easy-to-read, -understand, and -execute commands.
