|Our goal from the onset with this design was to develop a
cost-efficient durable machine that will provide years of
trouble free service. In practically any industrial environment.
Designed around the software and the performance
characteristics of the electronics, the result is an excellent
balance of precision, power and speed.
|Base: All 1018 steel mig welded construction, Black oxide finish with electronics mounted securely on drawer in the
cabinet. The table can support a few hundred pounds easily.
|Gantry: All 6061-T6 aluminum construction for lighter weight,
increased strength and speed, Hard gold anodized finish for
durability. All machined components, no bent and drilled parts.
|Bridge: 6061-T6 Aluminum Tig welded construction
machined square to very close tolerance.
|Linear system: V-rail system designed in house from O-1 tool
steel. The ways are adjustable and provide very stable
precise motion with almost no friction or resisitance. Enabling
the HS-1 to attain its very high rapid speeds. Very smooth
|Drive system: Innovative high tensile cogged belt. No stretch steel lined with high tensile strength means a powerful
means of delivering motion to each axis at higher speeds and less friction than any other coordinated mechanical
means. These types of belts have been powering large industrial CNC machines axes for years with tolerances and
repeatability in the thousandths of an inch or smaller.
|Available Options for the WD-1
Mach 3 Software License
The HS-1 and WD-1 were built to work optimally with the
time tested and exceptional Mach3 CNC control software
(www.artofcnc.ca). A free working demo is available from
their website. The demo is limited to 500 lines of
G-code. It supports a generous selection of NIST G-code
commands. We will provide the necessary XML config
file that you drop in to your PC to immediately format the
control. The license to unlock all limitations is just
$159.00 and is available as an option to your Romaxx
package. Mach3 is downloaded from
For those seeking a true ready to run out of the box
experience, Romaxx can also provide a great choice in
spindles. We've worked extensively with the Ryobi
TR45K and found it to be a very solid choice. it's powerful
and reliable with no noticeable run-out of the spindle.
Our CNC machines will work with a variety of router
models, this is just one we feel confident about
recommending and are glad to provide as an upgrade to
the basic package. Don't forget to add the Ryobi Router
Bracket below to secure the unit to the HS-1.
Bracket for Ryobi Router
At Romaxx we can create highly accurate custom
brackets for all models of Router/spindle. This model is
crafted specifically for the above Ryobi TR45K router we
offer as an upgrade to the basic HS-1 CNC package.
Let us know which type of router/spindle you plan on
using with your WD-1 or HS-1 and we can custom craft
a precision crafted bracket to hold it securely to the unit
and provide a lifetime of worry-free operation. Custom
brackets are built to specific models and are much
more dependable than any one-size-fits-all brackets.
Don't risk your machine by using an inferior product. Let
Romaxx do all the work!
MPG stands for Manual Pulse Generator and is
basically an electronic hand-wheel. It's the silver dial
on the front of the machine in the picture to the upper
right. By selecting it's function in Mach3, when the user
rotates the MPG it moves the selected axis. It has 100
detents per revolution and each detent or hash line
equals approximately .001" of linear movement. It is an
asset when referencing the cutter to the work and a
neat way to jog the spindle around.
[see mpg specs below]
Romaxx is also offering the MPG Handwheel
seperately from our HS-1 machine if you're interested
in adding it to your own machine or a custom
application. If you're adding the MPG to a new HS-1
basic system, please choose the above option
|Standard single end TTL operation.
|5vdc, Gnd 0V, A channel, B channel pinouts
|30mm clearance behind panel.
External Input Button
Formerly a valuable custom option on our basic
package, external input buttons controlling "Cycle Start"
and "Feedhold" are now standard on the basic HS-1
and WD-1 models, allowing the PC to be located
remotely. Another feature that makes both of our
machines the most user-friendly, hot-rodded CNC
Closed Loop System Upgrade
This option adds a level of insurance to the pro-level system with
regard to positioning accuracy and reliability. It includes
incremental rotary encoders for each stepper motor along with
interface board for easy connection to your PC.
Stepper driven machines operate in what is referred to as an
open loop configuration. That is to say, a motion command is
executed by the software and the hardware is expected to carry
out that position without checking it. In a closed loop
configuration, the hardware senses position with an encoder and
feeds this data back to the software for verification, thus, closing
the motion loop. Should the physical position get out of synch with
the logical position by a specified amount, it will trigger a software
"Reset". This will prevent further damage to expensive work piece
materials such as Ebony, Teflon plastics, etc.
It should be noted that open loop systems can be very consistent
and have been used reliably in industry for many years.
Cast Aluminum Tooling Plate Table
A highly valued addition to our standard HS-1 setup.
In place of the normal MDF table, a solid aluminum
bed for added functionality and value. Blanchard
ground flat. With .250" reamed holes and 1/4-20
tapped holes on 1.00"X1.00" and 2.00"X 2.00" grid.
Makes setup a breeze. Mount a vise, fixtures, use
toe clamps, bolt workpiece directly to the table,
install dowells for a fence or referenceing
workpieces, etc. We can also supply metric M6-1.0
threaded and 6mm dowell holes in the cast tooling
tables, free of charge.
