Full Size CNC Routers
CNC routers come in many configurations, from small home-style D.I.Y. "desktop", to large industrial CNC routers used in sign shops, cabinet making, aerospace and boat-making facilities. Although there are many configurations, most CNC routers have a few specific parts: a dedicated CNC controller, one or more spindle motors, servo motors, stepper motors, servo amplifiers, AC inverter drives, linear guides, ball nuts and a workspace table or tables. In addition, CNC routers may have vacuum pumps, with grid table tops or t-slot hold down fixtures to hold the parts in place for cutting.
CNC routers are generally available in 3-axis and 5-axis CNC formats. Many manufacturers offer A and B Axis for full 6 Axis capabilities.
