The C-Beam Machine XL is the newly designed extra-large CNC Machine straight from the Openbuilds Community. In many projects it happens, that an off the shelf plate does not suit your needs, a C-Beam Machine XL is the solution to this problem. A C-Beam Machine XL offers the freedom to create the custom plates you need, right away, no long waits, no extortionate prices.
For the size and robustness, nothing on market compares at the same price point. The C-Beam Machine XL is relatively in-expensive, pair this mechanical kit with a controller, router, power supply and you have yourself a CNC milling machine for less than a £1500.
As in the name, the C-Beam Machine XL makes full use of the C-Beam linear rail, which in turn uses the proven to work v-slot profile. Combining the C-Beam linear rail with other standard parts, allows for easy ACME lead screw linear actuators to be created. Four C-Beam linear actuators are used on the XL to drive the X, Y(2) and Z axes. With the use of precise ACME lead screws, and anti-backlash ACME nut block systems, highly accurate parts can be manufactured with the C-Beam Machine XL.
What Is Different On The XL?
Apart from the max cutting size 750x330mm compared to 305x280mm on the original, it has many other beneficial upgrades. The main advantage on the XL is that all the lead screws are orientated to minimize the amount of cutting debris which can land on them, this is crucial for the long term accuracy and life span of the machine. The XL takes advantage of the latest C-Beam XL
