Powermatic has entered the CNC market with a pair of three-axis models, PM-2X2RK and PM-2X4SPK, which differ by spindle travel.
“Our new CNC routers answer the demand by many woodshops and enthusiasts for the wide-ranging applications and precision of these computer-controlled cutting machines,” product manager Katie Davidson says. “These versatile machines can accurately and efficiently produce quantities of identical items, as readily as intricate one-of-a-kind creations.”
The PM-2X2K provides 3-axis travel of 24” x 24” x 6”; the PM-2X4SPK offers 24” x 48” x 6”.
The machines feature welded steel frames and can cut wood, plastics, composites, aluminum and foam.
They feature a handheld controller that is connected to the CNC with an 8’ cable. There’s a USB port for convenient file transfers and both models function with mainstream CAM software, including VCarve Desktop, VCarve Pro, Vectric Aspire and others.
The models are priced at $5,720 (PM2X2RK) and $8,500 (PM2X4SPK).
