There are several sizes and styles of CNC routers. The one you choose will depend on many factors: what kind of projects you are working with, the size of your material, and how much space there is in your workshop.
A tabletop machine may have quite an advantage for skilled craftsmen who want their own personal CNC router at home – it’s portable and takes up less room than other larger-sized options.
A table top router is a simple solution that will save you time and energy. There are lots of different types and each has a number of advantages.
1. Size Matters
If your home workshop is relatively small, then you want a CNC router that fits. The Stinger I table top router has cutting capabilities of 25” X 36” X 5.” or 25” X 48” X 5. It also has a range of optional upgrades.
This new and improved version of the original design has more standard features. It is easy to use, both for professionals who need it in their production environment and hobbyists looking for something budget-friendly but not too small – yet small enough that it can be easily moved.
The best part? It is designed, built, and supported from our facility in Cartersville, Georgia, USA.
2. Easy on Your Wallet
The size of your project and level of experience can affect how much you spend on a router. Tailor the purchase of your CNC router to your project and the goal that you have in mind for it.
Consider the outcome you are looking to achieve. Although more expensive routers may indicate higher quality machines, beginners may be fine with a router at a lower price point.
3. Strength and Durability
You can link the durability of a CNC router to its price. For example, the more expensive machines are built with heavier materials and therefore last longer than cheaper models that use lighter-weight metals.
Whether you’re considering purchasing your first machine, upgrading an existing model, or adding another, it’s always worth investing in quality parts rather than dealing with constant repairs later down the line.
In general, a cheap model may cost you more money in the long run. For that reason, it’s worth investing in a CNC machine that can take the wear and tear you’re likely to give it.
One of the first questions you should ask yourself before purchasing a new desktop router is what type of materials you’re working with, and how frequently. It’s essential to know that not all machines can handle heavy-duty work like cutting steel sheets or other metal-based objects.
Also, some are more versatile than others – which might suit your needs better, depending on the types of projects you’re tackling.
Understanding the different features and capabilities of each machine will help make your decision easier. It will help you determine if a particular machine fits within your budget and your everyday workflow requirements.<
Even a table top router should allow you options to expand. The Stinger I features a number of options, including:
- Recoil indexing lathe
- Fast tool change
- Laser cross hair
5. Ease of Use
The Stinger I package offers something different from other CNC routers. Instead of making operation complicated or tedious, its features are designed to help everyone use this high-quality equipment without hassle.
You will enjoy your time using this CNC router. It comes with an impressive control PC that runs Windows 10 PRO, and software preloaded on the system to ensure every part of this easy-to-use machine works for you.
The 19” flat panel monitor displays WinCNC operating systems, while Vectric’s VCarve Pro design software makes creating projects simple from start to finish.
