What is a WorkBee CNC?
The WorkBee is latest CNC Machine. The WorkBee is capable of accurately cutting foams, woods, plastics or aluminum at depths greater than 25mm to 0.2mm accuracy or greater.
WorkBee based on C-Beam, V-Slot, Xtreme Solid V-Wheels and TR8x8(P2) Leadscrews the WorkBee is strong, accurate and reliable.
It is best for someone who is new to cnc machine,because WorkBee simplicity in design makes it a great machine.
WorkBee CNC Machine
Newest Version WorkBee 1515 CNC Router Machine Full Kit 1500x1500mm with Tingle Tension System
This kit is the newest version available including a new Tension System to minimise Lead Screw ‘Whip’ !!
The Bulk Man 3D WorkBee was originally designed by Ryan Lock of Ooznest UK, and it incorporates many upgrades. It is a super-strong, accurate and easy to assemble CNC machine.
The WorkBee CNC design has gone through different changes. WorkBee Version 1 originally had the leadscrews placed in compression. All Bulk Man 3D’s WorkBee kits now sold areNewest Version,ith the major differences being the use of leadscrew tensioner and longer leadscrews in the X and Y Axis. This helps to solve the problem of Whipping when for long length or faster Speed.
Based on C-Beam, V-Slot, Xtreme Solid V-Wheels and TR8x8(P2) Leadscrews it is reliable. It has been carefully designed and can accurately cut foams, woods, plastics and aluminium to 0.1-0.2 mm accuracy or better. With a WorkBee CNC Kit you can manufacture functional engineering parts, toys, signs, or whatever you can imagine without leaving the workshop.
Compatible Material for Cutting/Milling/Engraving:
- Aluminium / Hard Wood / Soft Wood / Oak / Plexi Glass / Delrin / HDPE / Foam
The WorkBee CNC Complete Kit Specs:
- Mach3 4Axis NVUM USB Controller Bundle
- Mach3 5Axis STB5100 USB Controller Bundle
- GRBL 4Axis Arduino (Fully Compatible) CNC Shield V3 Bundle
Dual Drive System:The WorkBee is available from regular size 500x750mm up to 1500x1500mm both for screw driven and belt driven!
The WorkBee CNC also has two different spoiler board configurations. One for shallow work up to 27mm deep, and a lowered setup to 47mm deep. Having this option is beneficial. If the plan is to only cut thin materials, it is a waste of rigidity to have the Z-Axis reach down more than needed. The Screw Driven version, right image above, shows the lowered configuration.
