The router. A Sorotec Compact Line 0805 It will be a kit and I have to assemble everything together. Should be fun Travel is 820mm in X and 510mm in Y. That is alI can fit into my shop. I debated long between 410mm or 510mm in Y. 410mm has more stability of the portal, 510mm has more flexibility. I went with more flexibility ("larger" woodworking projects, part nesting, blablabla...) and decided to beef up the design for improved stability. Going to replace the casted zink profil connectors with some sturdy DIY machined aluminum angles. I ordered it without Z-axis, because I do not like the design. The carriers are attached to the Y-axis cross plate and the rails to the spindle mounting plate. The benefit of this design is that the ball screw and the rails of the Z-axis are protected from any chips. But the ones on the Y-axis are not anyway - so I do not see the point. The disadvantages (imho): - reduced Z travel. It can travel 170mm, which is the distance from fixture plate to portal. But you can't use this for milling. Best case your collet is flush with the bottom of the spindle mounting plate, than you still loose the endmill height. - limited spindle height - servo/stepper motor moves with axis - has to move its own weight - no option for brake So I will do my own Z-axis. Hopefully it will turn out like this This has 200mm travel. A standard 57mm long endmill will hover 10mm above the fixture plate in the lowest position. In my case this is a safety feature Do not have to go deeper, because there will be some kind of sacrificial board anyway. And if needed one day, I can still remove the upper spindle holder and move the spindle further down (with reduced stability) But most importantly, in the upper position I can now indicate pieces with a Haimer up to a height of 140mm above the fixture plate, as to 50mm max in the original design. So working on pieces in a vise will be possible now. And I added a brake for the ball screw, which hold the Z-axis in place when the servos are not powered. The whole thing is above 10 kilos. When finished it should look something like that. Pneumatics and mist cooling are still missing in this screen shot. They will go in the far corner, next to the control cabinet.
