The Avid CNC Rotary Axis adds rotary cutting and indexing capabilities to PRO CNC and Benchtop CNC machines.
The Rotary Axis Kit is designed to be highly versatile and accommodate many different workpiece sizes, while maintaining traditional routing work areas.
It can be mounted to an existing machine parallel with the X or Y axis, or can be recessed into the machine frame to maximize workpiece diameter. Mounting parallel to the Y axis (perpendicular to the machine gantry) maximizes workpiece length, while mounting parallel to the X axis preserves greater traditional routing work area. Recessed mounting can only be achieved parallel to the X axis of the machine.
PRO Series CNC machine mounting options:
Benchtop PRO and Benchtop Standard mounting options:
To determine the optimal rotary axis length for a specific application, start with the workpiece dimensions.
To gain complete access to the full Y travel of a machine, the rotary axis length must exceed the length of the machine frame (overall footprint will be affected). The chart below shows the required rotary axis length to maintain access to the full Y travel of the machine.
Mounting kits are available for both recessed and table top mounting:
Electronics are available for both Plug & Play and DIY control systems:
