Machine Standard Features

  • 12 HP (9 kw) Spindle

    12 HP (9 kw) Spindle

    A direct driven spindle with a speed range up to 24,000 RPM.  The high-frequency spindle is cooled with an electric fan for quieter running and contains ceramic bearings for longer life and for less maintenance.  The 12 HP (9kw) spindle provides the user with a heavy duty, precision spindle which provides high performance and reliability. Standard

  • Automatic Lubrication

    Automatic Lubrication

    Provides positive pressure, air/oil lubrication to the linear trackway bearings and the ball screws  This has two major benefits:  First, it eliminates the lubrication points which must be servided each shift.  Second, it provides positive pressure to the bearing, preventing contamination from entering the bearing.  This allows the machine to function in difficult, dusty or hostile environments. Standard

  • Control Nesting

    Control Nesting

    A user-friendly nesting package integrated into the Thermwood control to nest various parts into sheet stock, thus creating a better yield. Also accepts layered DXF files. Standard

  • Volumetric Laser Compensated Axis Alignment

    Volumetric Laser Compensated Axis Alignment

    The machine is calibrated in all axes using a three-dimensional volumetric laser interferometer. This type of calibration is the most sophisticated and most accurate available today resulting in machines that are extremely accurate. Others may use single axis calibration (not nearly as good) and others may not calibrate at all. Uncalibrated machines can generate dimensional errors that can become a real problem. Standard

  • Thermwood SuperControl

    Thermwood SuperControl

    The Thermwood SuperControl is a feature rich, high performance CNC control system. Thermwood, the only major CNC router manufacturer that designs and builds its own CNC control, is a leader in implementing advanced control technology. As a result, Thermwood has been granted more patents on CNC router technology than all other CNC router manufactures in the world, combined. Standard

  • Machine Training

    Machine Training

    We are by your side during your 5 Day training course at our modern, state of the art center (devoted specifically to educating our customers). This is, by far, the fastest and most efficient way to learn. Our machine operator/programmer courses are located adjacent to the machine training lab, where students complete the prescribed projects on a specific training machine utilized only for training purposes. Then, when it comes time for practical applications on a full sized machine, Thermwood's training lab is equipped with a CabinetShop 45 outfitted with all major options and features. Real production-type parts are cut. What a confidence builder!  Standard

Machine Options

  • 18 HP (13 kw) Spindle

    18 HP (13 kw) Spindle

    The 18HP (13 kw) spindle (3,000 to 20,000 programmable RPM). Accepts HSK F63 toolholders as well as Thermwood Aggregates and is equipped with an electric fan. Optional

  • At the Head Automatic Tool Changer

    At the Head Automatic Tool Changer

    This option consists of tool holder arms and five tool holders, which mount in an arc around the front of the spindle and hold the tapered tool holders. When a program calls for a tool change, the tool is automatically changed at the head. Available for the primary head as well as an optional secondary head. Optional

  • 2nd Head Spindle

    2nd Head Spindle

    A second head can be added to allow simultaneous machining of two parts. The second spindle includes a complete tool slide, second servo-controlled Z-Axis assembly and 24"(600mm) space bar. (Note: Bar Style tool changer cannot be used with this option). At the head Tool Automatic Tool Changer is also available for both heads. Optional

  • Automatic Tool Length Sensor

    Automatic Tool Length Sensor

    Provides an automatic method of measuring tool length and entering tool length offset numbers into the control.  This automatically compensates for the new tool length, eliminating the need to precisely locate the cutter bit.  It provides a highly accurate method of adjusting tool length for pocketing or profile edges. Optional

  • Electric Drill

    Electric Drill

    The Electric Drill is a compact, high-powered drill which will provide the user with a useful tool for light and medium duty drilling. Optional

  • Programmable Head Spacing

    Programmable Head Spacing

    This allows dual headed machines to vary the space between the heads from 24" to 36". Optional

  • Rotary Tool Changer

    Rotary Tool Changer

    10-position Stationary Rotary Automatic Tool Changer. Optional

  • 7 Position Bar Style Automatic Tool Changer

    7 Position Bar Style Automatic Tool Changer

    Mounts behind the rear of the table and holds the tapered tool holders.  When the program calls for a tool change, the head moves back and places the tool into an empty space, it then moves over and picks up the appropriate tool, and then continues the program. Optional
