The working envelope is just over 50"x 30" on the DTR5030 and just over 30"x 30" on the DTR3030 with z clearance at around 8" from the router lock nut to the base frame, with about 9" of clearance between the lowest part of the gantry and the base frame, and the Z axis has 8" of throw (depending on which z axis you choose). Technically you could remove one or two of the base frame bars and cut lower depending on your bit's stick out or create a jig that fits between the base frame bars and only then be limited by the bit's stick out. In some of the renderings I show it with a T track and wood spoil board but the Base frame bars have 10 holes cut into them every 3" or so, so you can mount whatever spoil board setup you would like.
The frame of the machine is based on 1/8 thick 2"x4" tube steel, each with two 23mm hardened linear rails and a precision ground ball screw. The gantry upright plates are designed around 3/8 milled steel and the machine has 14 Large linear bearings. This combination provides for a ridiculously rigid machine that I don't believe has any equal on the market.
The drive system is high power servo motors, also not seen on any desktop unit on the market.
Assembly is easy, as the linear stages are pre-assembled and come with all the bolts you will need. Attach the gantry side plates and the gantry, attach the base frame and square up the legs with the gantry, attach the Z axis assembly, and install your router. Video instructions, as well as written instructions with pictures will be on our website. The machine is designed to flat pack so shipment will be affordable, as it will not have to be freighted.
The table is designed around our existing proven control system which is an advanced 9 axis Planet cnc control card and Planet cnc software. The beauty of this is we plan to offer our larger RTR router lines as ' frame only' soon, so if you move to a bigger shop and decide you want to upgrade to a 4'x4' or 4'x8' or 5'x10' you can buy the frame only and swap over your motors and control system without having to purchase an entire new machine. This allows customers' machine needs to adapt and grow as their business grows.
The initial design is for a palm router to keep the price of the machine down, but if you would like a true spindle that's controlled by g code that could be an option as well.
