Axiom Tool Group is preparing to launch its new i2R small-format CNC machining center that will be available for shipping in December. The i2R – which stands for ‘Imagination to Reality’ – is targeted specifically at the first-time CNC user building furniture, cabinet parts, signs and more.
The machine is offered with a 2’ x 2’, 2’ x 3’ or 2’ x 4’ table. It features an air-cooled, 1-hp (800W) ER-11 electro spindle, prismatic guides, ball screws, and a RichAuto B series 3-axis controller.
“This reputable, robust, stand-alone DSP pendant controller that we use is a top of the line product. The new RichAuto B series is more modern with more buttons so there are fewer hidden functions,” says Todd Damon, Axiom’s president.
The DSP controller eliminates the need for a PC. “We feel that a task-driven DSP designed specifically to run a router is the correct solution. They’re very user-friendly, they’re powerful, they just work well. And it gives the user the ability to be cutting parts while they’re utilizing their PC to create the next job,” adds Damon.
The i2R is compatible with most commercial CAD/CAM software programs, according to Axiom.
Depending on table size, the i2R sells for $2,999 to $3,999. Optional accessories include clamping, tooling and dust collection products, as well as an optional stand with locking castors.
