You are not logged in. Consider these WOODWEB Member advantages:
6.6 kw electrospindle1/27
Be more specific. Hardwood. 8/4 hickory is hardwood.
Thatís borderline to run hardwood all day for sure. I would suspect you should be more concerned with how rigid the frame is.
What is the spindle attached to?
I am looking for a cnc router and i checked scm pratix s 6.6 kw on the onther hand other cnc router comes with 12 kw so i am alittle bit confused
Your question is somewhat vague. A 1.2KW spindle could handle the hardest of hardwoods if you have enough time (days).
Your 6KW spindle for any type of low end production (in my mind) is too small. I would be looking in the 10HP range at the absolute minimum if your trying to make money. The more you can afford, the faster youll be.
If however your in a market looking for fine detail carving work, then a larger spindle may be wasted on you other than for hogging down to the detail work.
It all depends on the specifics of the work you intend to do.
thank you for your response
and as i understood that the lesser the hp the more time it takes to do the job but it can be done
i am just new to this cnc world and i am working slowly to make the right decision
Just my opinion,,,,,you can do "production" on ANYTHING,,,,,,,,example,,Stiles makes form the best machinery around,,,,Brandt banders are crazy fast and last really long,,,but the Homag bander is the same machine but rated for "production" if you are on point with your maintenance,,,you can run" production" ,,its great having an SCMI shaper at work,,but at home my dewalt pluge router upside down on a jig does the same thing (modifying the case and having air inlets to keep the thing cool" ,,,
Too many things to consider for a specific answer. You can put a big motor on a cheap machine but it won't work as well as on a higher end machine. Trying to run a weak motor at slow feed rates is less than ideal also. If the chip load isn't enough the bit will run hot and its life will be short. There is very little difference in price to jump up in power but you may not get all the benefits you hoped for. The better manufacturers will know the limits of their machines. Depending on what tooling you choose you may be able to simply take more passes. Doesn't work with most profiles though. Time is $!
