Techno CNC Systems says its HD II large-format CNC router is a heavy-duty, high-performance machine designed specifically for the budget-conscious small- to mid-size production workshops. All steel constructed, the HD II includes a 12-HP HSD automatic tool changer with an 8-position tool rack and a pneumatically actuated vacuum hood that concentrates air flow on the spindle tool. A heavy-duty Bakelite material is used for construction of the 4-zone vacuum T-slot table, and Techno offers a 10-HP Becker rotary vane vacuum pump. The HD II drive system includes THK rails and bearings, precision helical rack and pinions powered with direct drive stepper (servo optional) gear motors, and is operated with an intuitive, easy-to-use hand-held controller. Techno's HD II CNC Router Series is available in 4-ft x 4-ft, 4-ft x 8-ft, and 5-ft x 10-ft sizes. Larger sizes are available upon request and the machine will accept sheets in a variety of materials including wood, composites, plastics, foam and non-ferrous metals.
