With the first-time CNC user in mind, Axiom Tool Group has integrated the Iconic series to its machining center line. They feature the same prismatic guides, ball screws and powerful DSP pendant controller used in Axiom’s larger CNC machines, but are scaled down in size and offered at a more affordable cost, according to the company.
The Iconic series includes three models based on capacity - Iconic-4 (24” x 24”), Iconic-6 (24” x 36”) and Iconic-8 (24” x 48”). Each has a 1-hp (800W) electro spindle, RichAuto B11 industrial 3-axis CNC controller, extruded aluminum frame, interlocking aluminum table, integrated MDF spoil board, and auto tool touch-off plate.
Axiom acquired the Iconic brand in August 2019.
“This line is going to provide a hobbyist or educational user with the opportunity to purchase their first machine and allow it to be good enough to be their last machine. They’re inexpensive but built with the same premise and with many of the same components and the same engineering that our larger machines have,” says Axiom’s Todd Damon.
The machines are ideal for fabricating furniture components, signs, musical instruments and more, as well as applications with plastics, non-ferrous metals and other materials.
Damon notes that the Iconic’s controllers are easy-to-use and don’t require regular software updates, important factors for beginners new to the technology.
The Iconic machines can be customized. Accessories include a steel stand, toolbox, hold-down clamps, dust collection components, tooling, LED lamp kit, 2.8-watt laser, and more.
The machines start at $3,999 and include lifetime technical support.
