High Precision & Accuracy & Repeatability

Lightweight and highly rigid column structure achieve low staring load and quick response of Z-axis.

Main Spindle and relative components are designed and made based on 1.25 safety factor, normal machining work at 8000-10000 RPM remains 1.6 – 2.0 safety factor which provides extremely high impact resistance.

Structure Design and Moving Components

  • The moving components of the 3-axis are all lightweight and designed with Meehanite forge material to get the quickest response feature.
  • Precise ceramic bearing mount used to improve assembly accuracy.
  • Equipped with SCHNEEBERGER Linear Rail and top-end customized HIWIN / THK Ball Screw.

Machine Structure Design

Box-in-Box design and large span structure achieve low weight and high rigidity for the best performance.

Machine weight is 20% lighter than the competitor’s machine.

The central structure has a large O-Shape structure to significantly increase vertical and horizontal rigidity

Cast Iron Bed Structure

The InstaCNC 2818 is equipped with SCHNEEBERGER Linear Rail and top-end customized HIWIN / THK Ball Screw.

The Siemens advanced controlling system SINUMERIK 828D controls the XYZ and spindle motors. This ensures the 5-micron positioning accuracy and the 3-micron repeatability.

Tool Holder Catching Mechanism (Patented)

Innovative design for tool holder catch

We designed, customized, and patented the tool holder catching mechanism to increase the impact resistance of the spindle to significantly increase the life span of the spindle and decrease the loss of precision.

Fastest Speed Auto Tool Changer

  • ATC: Auto Tool Changer
  • Innovative short arm tool changer designed for the fastest-changing time, low inertia force and much less impact to protect the spindle
  • Tool to Tool: 0.95 Second
  • Chip to Chip: 2.95 Second

20-Pocket High Volume Tool Magazine

Instead of the traditional funnel shape tool magazine with a maximum of 16 pockets, we designed the 20 pockets high-volume tool magazine.
