In order to accurately cut and machine panels for their customers, Faztek utilizes a programmable CNC panel router. A machine base, sold separately, was required to support the router before it could be operated properly.
Faztek needed a cost-effective, yet sturdy machine base for this CNC router. Vibration and movement would be generated during operation, so the base must be able to handle these issues in addition to the weight of the router and panels being machined.
Faztek engineered a heavy duty machine base, custom-designed for a perfect fit. Strong 3” x 3” T-Slotted aluminum extrusion profiles account for the majority of the base, along with joining plates to hold it together securely. Heavy-duty floor mount base plates were used to provide a secure seat and could also be fastened to the floor if required.
After installation and a quick test run, it was apparent the design of this machine base provided a perfect platform for this CNC router. Strong, sturdy, modular and cost-effective, this base will provide years of maintenance-free performance. Best of all, Faztek’s framing system is completely modular, allowing for future modifications. In this specific application, the base can easily be lowered or raised if so desired.
