Next Wave Automation introduced the CNC Hammerhead, featuring a 63” x 30” table, at IWF 2018.
The Hammerhead is now the largest machine offered by Next Wave, which specializes in desktop CNCs. It also features a steel frame, steel gantry supports and a rigid, interlocking aluminum table.
“Our customers have continually asked us to produce a larger all metal machine. After a good deal of input, we settled on a machinable area of 29” x 49” x 7”, allowing customers more capacity and the ability to place a 32”-wide door directly onto their machine,” says Tim Owners, founder and CEO of Next Wave.
“With this newest addition, we continue to strive to have the most competitive, all-inclusive, U.S.-made machines in the marketplace.”
The Hammerhead is outfitted with a 3-hp, variable-speed, water-cooled spindle and a pendant controller. It accepts 1/4” and 1/2” bits, and a fourth axis rotary system or any of the new laser accessories offered by Next Wave. It runs on a 120-volt, 20-amp circuit, according to the company.
The CNC Hammerhead will be available in January 2019 and sell for $6,499 with Vectric V Carve Pro and Next Wave’s Virtual Zero software.
