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 8 Basic is the largest of the basic series, with XYZ travel of 24'' x 48'' 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.


Features:
  • 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
  • Integrated MDF spoil board can be machined flat for precise perpendicularity with spindle
  • 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

Great CNC
I have had a small CNC for a number of years and decided it was time to move up to a bigger machine. I bought from another company and spent a lot of money but they couldn't get mine to work after two months. I sent it back and ordered this one. Got it in rather quickly, I only had a few small issues during initial setup and the tech support guys were quick to get me taken care of. I have already made a carving with this and the results were very good. The machine is well built being either steel or aluminum. Well worth the price I paid

BEST ANSWER: Yes and no. The machine is capable of engraving just about anything into any surface (provided you have correct bits). If you are doing small engraving in just one spot i think it would work well. If you plan on doing complicated engravings over a large area, and since a baseball bat is round, you would also need a 4th axis attachment, and all the bells and whistles that go with it. So to do a bat, plan to invest an additional $1000 on top of the cost of the machine. Hope this helped answer your question.
Is a laser module available for this machine?
