The Professor series of CNC routers are designed by CWI to be the best-in-class machines available today! Better performance, quality, motors, components and features than any competitive machine.
The M series “M2.2” is our smallest footprint Professor CNC making it ideal for hobby and educational users. The Professor bench top CNC are built solid from the ground up. The one-piece heavy-duty cast-iron frames provide a very robust structural foundation for extreme rigidity and tight tolerances. The 1” thick cast aluminum gantry and motor mounts allow a table height clearance of 9” and are propelled by exceptionally strong 4-amp stepper motors which power 5/8” heavy duty ball screws, running on THK linear guides and bearings. The black anodized aluminum table is mounted to the cast iron frame, creating an excellent working surface with plenty of options for the use of hold down jigs. Also supplied with the table are machinable hard rubber plates to act as a spoil board but still allow full access to the T-slots for work holding. Under the cast frame are four 2” diameter, adjustable feet for solid support on the workbench, or on our optional welded steel stand. For the motor spindle, we use the optional Bosch 2.25 HP variable speed router with 1/4” and 1/2” collet chucks. Other brands of similar sized motors can also be used. The machining area is just under 24” square with a gantry clearance height of 9?. This speedy, powerful machine can travel at 315”/minute and cut at up to 195”/minute. The M series machines come standard with a portable tool measuring station for making accurate measurements of cutting tool height. The measuring station can be placed anywhere on the table for quick measures during project programs. All Professor CNC feature simple to use, NC Studio model NK105 G3 handheld controllers. Simply download your work program from your computer to a memory stick, slide it into the USB port on the control panel of the CNC, and the handheld controller then loads the programs for the next projects . Using memory sticks to transfer information is important for keeping your computer out of the dusty world of your workshop. The “guts” of the Professor is a control box full of Schneider CSA contactors, fuses and holders, motor controls and the Weihong control box. The Professor is fully CSA certified for use in Canadian and American schools and commercial applications. The Professor M series machines operate on 110-volt power on a standard 15-amp circuit breaker. The dust collection capabilities on the M series have been specially designed by CWI with safety, efficiency and functionality as its focus. Firstly, we designed two ports of connection. Trying to have a dust hose attached directly to the dust hood around the router spindle always creates difficulty in how to keep a flexible dust hose out of the working area. Because of this many competitor models offer a dust hood as an option and not as standard equipment. We believe dust collection to be important so adding the second port above the spindle allows a small section of dust hose to attach to the dust hood itself and the other end high above the spindle to keep the dust collector connection high out of the way. Also built into the dust hood is a dust bellows that seals the area around the router spindle down to the dust hood, creating a better enclosed suction area for increased efficiency. Then for ease of changing tooling the dust hood has a hinged opening to swing away access for simple tool changes. Design software is not included with the machine but is sold separately. CWI recommends the Vectric CNC products including both V-Carve Pro and Aspire. Other options you may wish to consider purchasing with your new Professor CNC are our newly designed heavy duty portable CNC stands and enclosures. The stands are available separately or with an additional safety enclosure. The stands feature heavy duty casters for movement around the shop as well as drawers and cabinets for storage of options like tooling and other needs. The enclosures bolt down to the stands to completely enclose the operation of the CNC for safety. There are three large doors that open for ease of access to the CNC but are electronically connected to the CNC for safety. If the doors are open the CNC cannot run a project program. We offer two sizes of stands/enclosures to fit all Professor Bench Top CNC models. Specifications:
