Axiom AutoRoute 4 Basic CNC

One of Axiom's most compact, affordable models, offering 24'' x 24'' of capacity, plus compatibility with a variety of aftermarket routers.

Note: Stand and software sold separately.

Item #

The AutoRoute series of CNC machines from Axiom offers advanced features usually found only on machines in industrial environments, but at consumer-friendly prices. The AutoRoute 4 Basic offers compact performance, with XYZ travel of 24'' x 24'' x 6'', and a universal router mount that accepts a wide variety of commonly available woodworking routers (see below). A computer need not be attached to the CNC to operate it. Instead, simply transfer your file to the included handheld controller via USB. The RichAuto A11 controller is an easy-to-use, robust controller with nearly a decade of proven results in demanding applications. It is more stable than a PC, and no updates are required. Every Axiom AutoRoute CNC machine also offers precision ball screws, prismatic guides, robust, rigid steel frames, and interlocking aluminum tables. In addition, the integrated MDF spoil boards promise exacting precision, as they can be milled flat for true perpendicularity with the spindle. Whether you're looking to upgrade your entry-level CNC, or you just want to start out with a machine that promises top-quality results and ease of use, you're sure to be pleased with the AutoRoute series from Axiom.

  • Universal 3-1/2'' router mount accepts a variety of motors (not included, see complete compatibility list below)
  • Features precision ball screws, plus prismatic guides on all axes
  • Welded structural steel frame for less vibration and greater accuracy
  • Interlocking aluminum table accepts T-track accessories
  • Cast gantry supports for maximum rigidity

    which model or series of axiom is capable of work with metal to create module like faucet size ?

    Axiom AutoRoute 4 Basic CNC
    Axiom AutoRoute 4 Basic CNC
    Axiom AutoRoute 6 Pro+ CNC
    Axiom AutoRoute 6 Pro+ CNC
    Axiom AutoRoute 4 Pro+ CNC
    Axiom AutoRoute 4 Pro+ CNC
    BEST ANSWER: They all have the same capabilities. They are only limited in size. However, the most important thing is the bit, cutting speed (feed rate), depth out and type of bit.
    If you wanting to do a faucet you will need a fifth axis. But, if you are planning on cutting the surface of the top or an escutcheon they will all do that.
    Are any of these 4 axis and have high enough spendle speeds for milling aluminum, and also are these compatible with turbo cad/cam software? Any help would be great. Thanks
