About the Vico C-Beam Expert XL Machine Mechanical kit:
The Vico C-Beam Expert XL Machine 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.
The Vico C-Beam Expert XL Machine 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.
Apart from the max cutting size 750x330mm compared to 305x280mm on the original, it has many other beneficial upgrades.
- X Axis Travel – 750mm (29.5″)
- Y Axis Travel – 330mm (13″)
- Z Axis Travel – 2″ Actual working depth ~1″
Compatible Material for Cutting/Milling:
- Plexi Glass
What is in the Kit
Our C-Beam XL Machine kit includes everything needed to complete the mechanical portion of the C-Beam Machine XL.
You can be confident on the quality of the parts we supply in the kit because they are all genuine. The components which are needed to get the C-Beam machine cutting and running is MDF boards, Power supply, Controller board, and Router.
The C-Beam and V-Slot linear rails are pre-cut and tapped where needed. And the ACME Lead screws provided are to the correct length.
Please note the Dewalt Router and MDF Boards seen in the pictures are not included with the kit.
For the MDF boards you will need 2 x 900x500mm & 1 x 800x400mm boards, the thickness is up to you, 12mm is the minimum, 18mm is used in our pictures.
