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.

  • 200 IPM maximum feed rate (3.3'' per second)
  • 6.5'' gantry clearance and 6'' of Z-axis travel for compatibility with tall workpieces
  • Automatic Tool Touch-Off Puck makes it easy to zero out the Z-axis

    Does the cnc machine require a pc to hook up while cutting or can the file be loaded with a thumb drive?
    Michael on Dec 18, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The Axiom CNC series requires a PC for the design element of each project, but the machining of the part is handled from the handheld control unit. There is no requirement for a computer in your shop.

    The toolpath file is carried from the design PC to the machine on a USB thumb drive.
    what materials can the Autoroute 4 Basic cut/carve?
    Charles M on Nov 4, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: The Axiom AR4 is capable of machining wood, wood products (such as MDF and HDF), solid surface counter material, acrylics, aluminum and other non ferrous metals. If you have questions regarding specific materials please feel free to contact Rockler Technical Services.

    As with all CNC machines, your results will depend of bit choice, feed rates and spindle speeds.
