Our 4 HP (3 kW) Plug and Play Spindle / VFD System is a production-level cutting solution that offers a significant capability upgrade over a standard router by providing a true 4 HP of cutting power, allowing for faster and deeper cuts.
It is preconfigured to run with any of our CNC Electronics Systems and Kits, or can be integrated into most other CNC electronics configurations.
Evaluating the Material Removal Rate (MRR) is an indicator of the efficiency of a cut. This is a combination of depth-of-cut, width-of-cut, and feed rate.
Comparison tests were conducted in maple hardwood with a PRO Series CNC machine, NEMA 34 motors, and an Amana RC-2241 1.5" tool. Chipload was set to the tool manufacturer's recommended maximum of 0.008 inches per tooth.

Our current Plug and Play CNC Control Systems (NEMA 23
and NEMA 34
) are "Spindle Ready" and require no additional components to work with this Spindle / VFD system.
The compatibility options available below include additional components for integrating this system with our previous CNC electronics systems, or with DIY CNC electronics. Please refer to our Plug and Play Spindle / VFD System Setup and Retrofit Guides
for detailed installation and setup instructions for each of these options:
- CRP500 / MX4660 - this option includes a gland connector for integrating with either our previous NEMA 23 Plug and Play Systems (systems with CRP5042 digital drivers that were built prior to February 2015), or with the Leadshine MX4660 4-Axis Stepper Driver.
- CRP300 - this option includes an additional PMDX-107 Isolated Speed Control card and gland connector for integrating with our previous NEMA 34 Plug and Play Systems (systems with Gecko G201X or G203V drivers, and PMDX-126 breakout board).
This product will be available to ship starting May 3, 2021.
