ACT Machines Announces a Breakthrough Development in Desktop CNC

by Andrew Torchon

Los Angeles, CA Ė Top of the line desktop CNC routers that can perform precision engraving and milling on a variety of materials such as metal, wood, stone or plastic, are often large and expensive or too small and under powered for the job. Many desktop CNC machines are low in cost but donít have the versatility or capabilities for milling intricate and precise work for delicate artistic jewelry or highly specific molds and prototypes.

Desktop CNC milling machines created from a kit have the disadvantage of requiring the owner to take valuable time away from their work and put out the effort to build it themselves. For those whose main talents are in the field of design, drafting and generally creative, they often prove to be non-proficient mechanics that become exasperated with the many parts and components required to put the whole CNC router together. Although many artisans, craftsmen and designers who would normally send out their designs for prototyping, an unwelcome added expense, the idea of a CNC router machine that could bring their designs to life while being compact, easily moved and simple to use is a dream waiting to happen.

In comparing pre-assembled CNC routers for under $10,000 the key is to find a desktop CNC machine that is light enough and compact enough to move around where floor space is scarce, and have the versatility, durability and capabilities to perform high level precision milling on a multitude of materials. There are CNC routers out there that can do some of these things; some for very cheap, but very few will be able to offer everything mentioned plus more and be so easy to use, a child could do it.

Many other CNC machines that sell for under $10,000 have been retrofitted from manual milling machines. These types of CNC router systems can be quite bulky and very heavy with limited CNC functions. Because of the need to be versatile, the lack important functions like variable speeds, optic sensors and overloading protection are often only offered as an add on which can raise the price considerably. Sometimes these options arenít available at all, making the so-called bargain CNC milling machines less than a good deal.

ACT Machines have developed a truly remarkable desktop CNC machine that brings it all together and then some. Advance Control Tech offers the state of the art DMC-III CNC machine that utilizes advanced digital control technologies with integrated electric and mechanical design. Compared to much more expensive CNC router systems, the DMC-III provides a machine with repeatability to an astonishing 0.0001Ē. Itís a gantry design with all the power and control systems built Ėin, allowing for the machine to be smaller in overall size while achieving the superior capabilities and versatilities of much larger CNC machines in addition to the advantage of total portability.

Advance Control Tech desktop CNC router is perfect for all types of high precision CNC milling such as PC boards and electronic face plates are well as intricate molds, jewelry designs, prototype development, thin-plate machining, small quantity production and exquisite engravings for the hobbyist or professional. And the entire functional design is US patented. The DMC-III desktop CNC machine is easy to operate and comes completely assembled with everything you need to start including operating manual, full loaded software that is PC design compatible and its own personal PC unit. All you have to do is plug in the PC to the system, plug in the power, load up your design, align, hit the button and off you go. The DMC-III desktop milling machine is simple to use, compact, portable, durable and versatile; all ready to go at a great price.
