Plurato CNC milling machine

Postby Niksa_cnc » 17 Jan 2016, 11:07

Hello everybody, I want to present you my the very first CNC project so I will upload a few pictures of manufacturing and testing my CNC.

At the beginning I got a parts like stepper motors, drivers, spindle, linear rails, balls crews etc... and a task to design a machine for PCB milling with capabilities to do some basic 3 axis aluminium, wood or plastic milling.

So I did some internet research and CAD modelling of components to fit them to a housing from 15 mm AlMg3 panel.

While project was developing, I did some iterations in design and find new solutions for problems.

Nice. When you start it you can post a video of machining.

I started it and did first tests these days. I have a lot of work on it to enable more features supported by controller and I have to do a fine tuning of machine mechanics.

I will add a encoder for controlling spindle, tool offset switch, movable tool sensor and camera.

Here is the testing preview.

Some new parts for a machine...

As you can see, I decided to use PC as housing for all electronic parts so as result I have "all in one" configuration.

we would recommend that you use shielded cables for your wiring. EMI can cause big problems with communication.
