What is CNC Router and How Does it Work?

CNC router is a type of computer-controlled automatic machine tool. First, you should use CAD software to design the CNC file, and then use the CAM software to convert the file into a tool path code that the CNC can read. Then, the computer converts this code into a signal that controls the movement of the drive system. In short, the user creates a design and uses the CAD/CAM software to make instructions for the CNC router machine.

How to Use a Rotary CNC Router with 4th Axis for Beginners?

STYLECNC's engineer will show 2 different models of STM1325-R1 and STM1325-R3, both them with rotary device installed. STM1325-R1 with 4th rotary axis at side of table, and STM1325-R3 with rotary 4th axis at the front of CNC router table.

They are not the really 4 axis spindle, but both of them can do 3D CNC carving and cutting works.

If your 4th axis is not the same as them in the video, such as your rotary on the table, or 4th axis rotary inside table, the working principle is almost the same. You can try to operate your 4th axis CNC router from the video first, if there is any trouble to operate your machine, please don't hesitate to contact our CNC router engineer and service man via email:

Step 1. Put it directly on the table, so that the gantry needs to be heightened, and the platform size will not be affected when the plane is carved. The rotating axis can be put on and taken down at any time.

Step 2. Put the side of the platform, the diameter of the rotating axis affects whether the gantry is heightened. If the diameter is large, the gantry needs to be heightened. If the diameter is 10cm, it is not necessary. .

Step 3. The table top sinks as a whole, put the rotation axis under the platform, if you carve the plane, put the platform on the rotation axis for carving.

4th Axis Rotary CNC Router Features

1. The bed and frame are welded with thick-walled square tubes, and undergo stress relief treatment, with good rigidity and no deformation.

2. The Y-axis adopts dual-motor drive, high-precision gear and rack drive, with relatively large power and stable operation.

3. The rotary device is equipped with chuck (positive and negative jaws) and rear thimble. The rear tail thimble movement uses a square linear guide rail, and the concentricity is extremely accurate. The chassis is finished by integral casting and is equipped with workpiece balance rollers.

4. A stainless steel sink can be selected on the lifting platform for stone machining, and an automatic water supply device is also provided.

5. The rotator can be placed on the table, front or side. When the cylindrical workpiece is not cut, the rotator can be unloaded for 2D flat cutting.
