I have been reviewing some cnc suppliers for my first build and keling seems to get some really good reviews not to mention that they are VERY close to home. So I am having trouble trying to establish my build needs. I have a smaller horizontal boring mill that I want to convert to 3-4 axis CNC. I intend to build 3 axis to begin with but I want to build with the 4th axis add-on an option for the future. The table is small (approx. 5" x 18") but I am planning on working on some heavy material approximately 80 lbs. I feel that the machine is capable of accurately handling the size of material. I don't need to set the world on fire. Just looking to make some accurate repetitive cuts. So I am estimating that with material and table I am needing to move 100 pounds on the X & y axis and on the z axis the weight will be around 130 pounds. I am planning on cutting aluminum and steel conservatively and would like to around 100ipm rapids. I have .750" lead screws on x & y and 1.00" on the z.
What would be my requirements as far as motors and drivers? I tried to run a formula that I found on line but I feel that particular formula was out of my math realm and I think that I had too many "unknowns."
Could someone with keling experience point me in a good direction of what would be my best option that keling offers????
Thanks in advance.
