HDS SERIES CNC ROUTER
Techno’s HDS Series CNC Machine is made up of all steel construction, providing the rigid foundation required for ultra-smooth routing results. The HDS Series CNC Router includes a 12 HP HSD automatic tool changer spindle with an 8-position tool rack. The HDS Series comes standard with a pneumatically operated dust collection hood that concentrates 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 an extremely stable material that holds tight tolerances for precision cutting, and is connected to a 10HP rotary vane vacuum pump (twin pack optional), for quiet operation. For easy sheet alignment, (3) pop-up pins are included on the HDS Series, and are precisely placed to handle and align various size materials. The HDS Series CNC Machine is powered by brushless AC Servo digital motors and drives, and is powered by an easy-to-use and learn Osai PC based industrial controller.

“I’ve been meaning to drop you guys a note letting you know how much we appreciate the quality of the CNC machine, and the service we receive from Techno CNC. Having had a year and a half of time with the machine, we truly value it’s dependability, and virtually trouble free operation. That, combined with the speedy, friendly and knowledgeable service, are things we do not take for granted. Thank you for providing a high quality product, and great service
Bill Stump, NY Tent
“I really do love your machines. They certainly are work horse machines. We even recently used the vacuum table to laminate some plywood pieces with thick veneer using a 3mill plastic sheet. It’s amazing that we are still finding many more uses for this machine other than its main purpose. It has opened so many possibilities and has given Reither woodworking more independence allowing us to do things we used to sub out. I love being able to keep things in house as it allows us to have more control over our quality of work”.
Neil O’Moore-Klopf, Reither Woodworking
Purchasing the Techno CNC HDS 5×10 router is one of the best decisions we have made. Being in a business where versatility is essential in our equipment; building everything from casework up to funky shaped tunnels and custom aluminum brackets which need to withstand engineering scrutiny we found a great tool in our router. There are days we start with cutting standard plywoods, shift to cutting 3” thick foam, then finish the day cutting Sintra and acrylic. All with immense ease. The best part of having our router is having a great team standing behind their product. Any questions we have get answered very quick. Coming from a background with experience in similarly priced lesser quality machines, and working on machines 3x the price of ours, the service and care experienced with the Techno team is top-notch and their dedication rivals that of other machine companies and we are extremely happy and have no regrets. The machine has allowed us to compete with companies 10-100x our size.

I made our CNC upgrade close to 10 years ago. We came back to Techno to upgrade from our Techno Desktop CNC machine. Now, my 5×10 HDS Series and desktop machines are growing old with me… working hard and having fun. Our business has us working with hardwood, plywood, MDF, aluminum composite, and acrylic. Our machines never disappoint. And the people over there at Techno CNC… they are just as hard working, dependable, and precise as the machines that they build. Thank you for playing such a huge part in my continued success and growth

- All steel construction
- 12 HP HSD high frequency automatic tool changer spindle
- 4-Zone vacuum t-slot table
- Material pop-up pins for easy sheet alignment
- Osai PC based Industrial grade CNC controller
- Brushless digital AC servo motors and drives
The HDS Series base frame is fabricated from heavy-duty tubular steel that is welded, precision machined and stress relieved so that the foundation remains true and steady over the operational life of the machine.
The HDS Series machine comes standard with a 12 HP HSD high frequency automatic tool changer spindle. This precision spindle requires no maintenance, uses industry standard ER collets and ISO 30 tool holders, is fully programmable with speeds from 6000 to 24000 RPM, and comes complete with a pneumatically retractable vacuum hood.
The HDS Series machine includes an 8-position tool rack in the rear of the machine. The position of this rack allows for easy loading and unloading of material from either side of the machine.
TOOL CLAMP HOLDER
The Techno HDS Series CNC Machine comes equipped with a tool holder clamp fixture, providing a much easier way of inserting and tightening the CNC router bits into your tool holder. This method is safer and easier.
Automatic tool calibration pad is designed for easy and accurate recording of tool length off-sets
The HDS includes a pneumatically operated vacuum hood that has concentrated air flow at the spindle thus efficiently cleaning up the dust and debris as it is routed.
The vacuum plenum table surface is multi-zoned which allows the operator to easily switch from full sheet processing to smaller part processing (which requires a smaller segmented area). Zones can be turned off easily via control valves on the front of the machine. Gasketing can also be routed to accommodate various material sizes and styles.
The HDS Series machine comes standard with three pop up pins. These pins allow the operator to bank the edge of the material against them precisely aligning the material to the axes of travel and always having a common origin.
Techno CNC’s HDS Windows-Based G-Code Osai Interface is included with each machine and is an indispensable tool in any CNC Router application. Its open architectural design accepts G-Code files from any industry standard CAD/CAM software package, and can operate using inch or metric units and is highly customizable to better suite your needs. Customers that are new to automation find the Techno CNC Interface easy to learn and operate. Most are up and running in less than one day of training. They find the intuitive design and functions easy to use and remember. The most fundamental controls and displays are all visible on the main page. Customers soon discover that just because the Techno CNC Interface is easy to use, it does not mean that it is not a comprehensive CNC program.
All the electrical components are housed and wired in a doubled-doored 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.
Manual Pulse Generator (MPG)
The MPG allows the operator to move around the machine, making for easy setup
The HDS Series CNC Router utilizes AC Servo motors powered by Yaskowa drives. These motors require no regular maintenance — therefore, reducing any maintenance downtime.
DRIVE TRAIN ASSEMBLY
The Techno HDS Series 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, this assures smooth motion and long term reliability. The precision gearbox is directly coupled to the Servo motor and pinion. This eliminates belt stretch inaccuracies assuring high-speed machining while the system positions the spindle accurately
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 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.
9-Spindle Drill Bank
Optional* The 9-Spindle Drill Bank is an option for a HDS Drill Bank Nesting machine. All nine spindles are on 32mm centers and are fully programmable for individual or gang drilling. The unit is 3HP “L” shaped drill pattern
Details Spacing: 32mm
Number of vertical drills = 5+4 (5)in X & Y, center is shared.
VACUUM PUMP OPTIONS
Techno offers Becker Rotary Vane vacuum pumps which are quiet, clean, and require minimal maintenance. The standard size we offer is a 10 HP or twin pack, which incorporates two 10 HP pumps mounted on a steel frame. These pumps pull 25” Hg @173CFM each. This level of vacuum is essential for holding the parts in place while being routed.
