Get a smooth radius with SNX nVentor


SNX Technologies recently introduced the nVentor 408TG, an industrial CNC router designed to deliver the cleanest of cuts. Loaded with features and capabilities for the custom woodworker, the 408GT routers can be customized upon request, according to the company.

The nVentor features a twin-zone 4’ x 8’ vacuum table for selective part processing, a vertical spindle boring block, 12-hp main spindle, tool changer, tool presetting station, steel pop-up part location pins, and 10-hp vacuum pump.

Jim Eckberg, marketing manager for SNX, says the orientation of the nVentor is to help end-users make shaped parts. The machine weighs a hefty 8,000 lbs. and its rigid construction reduces vibration that would otherwise end up in the spindle.

“For us, because we manufacture contour edgebanders, we are hypervigilant about having a machine that makes really smooth radiuses. The computers that work on these routers send information to motors that turn the machine, so it’s extremely important that we get a precise, smooth radius because we’re going to take it immediately over to an edgebander. When you apply edgebanding, that’s when you see little waves going on in the parts or you see the little errors in the toolpath,” says Eckberg.

The nVentor is compatible with major woodworking CAD/CAM software systems. It starts at under $60,000.
