Control Nesting

Integrated into the Thermwood control system to nest various parts into sheet stock, it also accepts layered DXF files.

Additional features

Automatic Lubrication

Provides positive pressure, air / oil lubrication to the linear track way bearings and the ball screws. This both prevents contamination to the bearing allowing the machine to work in dusty environments and takes away the need to manually lubricate the machine between shifts.

At the Head Automatic Tool Changer

This option consists of tool holder arms and five tool holders, which mount in an arc around the front of the spindle and hold the tapered tool holders.

Pop Up Pins

These are guides which are mounted to the table perimeter for locating sheets of material.

Personal Pause Button

For both safety and peace of mind the operator can place the CNC machine into automatic pause with this fob which can easily attach to a trouser pocket.

Automatic Tool Length Sensor

Automatically compensating for for the change in tool length, the sensor offers a highly accurate method of adjusting before profiling edges.

2nd Head Spindle

A second head can be added to allow simultaneous machining of two parts.

Vacuum Pump

A unique way of holding parts to the table, the high flow pump vacuums through the work surface to hold the part in place. 

7 Position Bar Style Automatic Tool Changer

Mounted behind the rear of the table, this automatic tool changer is quick to react when the program calls for it.
