Background

Our CNC machines are among the most popular tools in the space. Our current machines are not suitable for machining tough materials such as steel and cast iron and are limited in their ability to machine non-ferrous metals. While our current Bridgeport milling machine can work with tough materials rather well, it is a manual machine which makes intricate parts tedious and sometimes impossible to produce.


Aging electronics often makes machine tools obsolete before their often become undesirable for industrial users

Candidate Machine

Software

Hardware

Location

The CNC Milling Machine will be located near the Bridgeport milling machine, as they will be able to share tooling and this location is convenient to 3 phase power.

Costs

Milling Machine $1000 Sales Tax $100 Delivery $150 Vise $150 Control computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse $250 3 axis motor controller $400 tool holders $150

Total

  • Actual Total: $2200
  • +10% buffer: $

Language

Authorize the board to spend up to $xx of Spaces funds on a CNC milling machine, rigging costs, controller upgrade costs, etc. Authorization expires 6 months after the vote is accepted. The expenditure is to be executed so long as there are more than 8 months worth of rent in savings.
