control nesting for 3 axis cnc router

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.

18 HP (13 kw) Spindle

Programmable from 3000 to 20,000 RPM the 18HP spindle accepts HSK F63 tool holders and Thermwood aggregates. 

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.

2nd Head Spindle

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

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. 

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.

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. 

Aggregate Tooling

Allows the operator to route or drill horizontally and saw, offering increased revenue potential with the added flexibility. While not in use, the aggregate tool body is stored in a tool holder located off the back of the table

Pop-Up Pins

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

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. 

Drill Bank

The drill unit is a vertical boring head with nine vertical spindles. The spindles are on 32mm centers.

Rotary Playback

The rotational playback axis is attached to the top of the machine table. it is capable of accepting stock that is 8 inches (200mm) in diameter and up to 56″ (1.4m) in length. The unit is designed primarily for reproducing furniture components.
