Next Wave Automation will present its latest version of the Piranha XL benchtop CNC at the 2017 AWFS fair.
“The new CNC Piranha XL takes the Piranha series one step closer to a full-size CNC for the fraction of the price,” the company said in a statement. “Its large 12'' x 24'' table makes it perfect for projects like carvings, plaques, ornamental boxes and precision parts machined from wood, soft metals, or plastics. With its 3D carving capability, including a 3-D models library, you can carve expensive corbels, cut intricate inlays and engravings. The creative potential is unlimited and the entire machine can easily fit on one end of your bench.”
New features, according to the company, include:
• Auto edge and rotational sensing that automatically locates the workpiece and identifies its size, center and auto-locates your starting point no matter how it is positioned on the work bed.
• Virtual Zero software maps the surface of your table or work piece and uses the map as a dynamic reference point. This virtually eliminates problems caused by warped or bowed work pieces.
• Touch screen color graphic pendant controlled software package
• X & Y homing capability
