View Full Version : Find router parts in Sweden?

Hi all!

My first post in this excellent forum!

My intentions are to build myself a CNC Router from scratch. However, finding sources for the necessary parts here in Sweden is taking up all my spare time. I've seen that I have a couple of Swedish fellows lurking around here and this little cry for help is primary directed towards them - but any help from anyone is appreciated.

So, any suggestions where I could find some of the following components (new or used):
- Aluminium extrusions for the body of the construction.
- Aluminium plates.
- Linear guides (I'm looking at Igus as a possible solution).
- Ballscrews.
- Servos and electronic parts.

Gratefully,

Matz

Hi there!

Unfortenately, everything in Sweden is expensive when it comes to CNC machines.
Igus are pretty nice, also try to find linear guides at German eBay, http://www.ebay.de.
Metal parts can be found at http://www.metallvaruhuset.se or at http://www.uddeholm.se and both are very good.
I'm using "Acme" and they can be ordered from http://www.wiberger.se and I think they have the best prices ever found here and they have a lot of useful stuff.
Timing belts, wheels, gearboxes, motors etc can be found at http://www.oemautomatic.se and http://www.momentum-industrial.com. But when it comes to motors (both servo's and steppers) I recommend you eBay or any American distributor. I had contact with a company over seas that offered me prices less then 30% of the Swedish companies!

Lyckat till! Är det inte dags för en svensk tråd snart? ;)

might have a few used parts. A user at Elektronikforumet (http://www.geekjoan.com/forum/) bought two SKF ballscrews with nuts for SEK300 (€33). Not bad! I heard they also got cheap ball bearings and machine parts.

Wow! Thank you guys! You're the best!

Never thought I'll get so many good suggestions in so very short time! We'll, this proves what I already knew. This is the best place for a CNC visionary (read: novice) like me! :)
I'll check out the links you posted. However, if you stumble over some more useful links/addresses, don't hesitate to post them here later on. I'll be watching! :)

Another idéa I just got was to attend the Teknikmässa (Technical trade fair) in Älvsjö in October. It might be a nice place for breaking new ground. Maybe I'll see you all there! :cheers:

Graham, do you really think that would be good? So few of us it will likely die out as it has on Yahoo Svenskahobbycnc.

Benny, I personally think we can manage without that *help*. But if they are willing to put in some money, well thats an other story

A nice beginner DIY CNC Router is the one I have built, look in my Zoltar thread.

Absolute value for your money up and run in a week.

Maybe you can buy the plan and cut it at someone with a waterjet check this chick she can cut almost everything to a decent cost.

Yeah! She (is she a she?) lives in my "neighbourhood"! Just 50km north of my village.
I feels like all the pices are falling together. Got some nice sources for metal and such from you guys, and now you give me a "neighbour" that can cut the stuff I need for my project. Well, how good can it get?
:cheers:

Tecno, I was think more of you exchanging email addresses. Handy to know people with similar interests who are close enough to lend a tap or die :) Another CNC forum is definately not required.

Hi Graham,
That is a very good idea, hopefully we can do something about it :)
We can always start a Swedish Thread and keep you others *outside* as we use our native lingo but I don´t know if that would be accepted.

Just a quick note, Acme is not the same as the thing we call "trapetsgänga", think it has to do with some angles that are different, check out http://www.ledarskruv.se for more info.

Acme is a type of trapetzoidal, it's just made after a different standard. By laziness I wrote acme. :)

trapezoidal is metric acme, basically.

Hi Sven
Have you tried NC-Step in Germany,they do a great range of motors and boads
at very reasonable prices,and complets kits.

Hi Bill,
No I haven't. They have some nice looking kits but kind of small though, don't they?

BTW, if you're willing to spend a little bit of extra money I can really recommend http://www.rollco.se that sells both linear guides and ballscrews for very reasonable prices, about half compared to THK, Aratron etc.

Cheers,

HI again Sven
No the kits and boards from NC-step are very good and will power most stepper motors
up to 2.5 to 3amps on there 3d board have you looked at the 4amp driver board.
i am waiting for my boards to arrive i will let you now how i get on.
I intend to use them on arouter machine and on my mini mill.

More links...
Was helping a customer and found this company. I haven't called them, but give 'em a try. Seems that they can deliver standard encoders and cheap motors etc.

They do not sell to private people, only if you have a company and order many motors.

Hello!
I am living in Stockholm,Sweden and own a machine shop with a couple CNC machines, this stuff is my work and passion. Anybody near Stockholm want to get in touch, share ideas, or need work done I am very interested. My email is jnfswe@hotmail.com

I find www.elektronikforumet.com quite good for discussing DIY CNC in Swedish.

Oh, the old Swede-thread is alive again!
There are at least 10 Stockholm-people active here and I'm one of 'em, just drop a message when you feel for it. :)

As I mentioned earlier I am very interested in meeting People in Stockholm which have the same interests as I do. I would like to give a helping hand or take a helping hand with Machinists around my area. I am interested in taking in work for my shop and also giving out work which I may not be able to handle. My current ambituons are to learn cad\cam (mastercam), put my new product into high volume manufacturing to meet customer demands, and to strengthen my knowledge of electronics. I am also intersted in finding a partner which is familiar with machining and wants to manufacture my product with me. I have more orders than I can handle and are willing to give a piece of the profit. I am from California and have many resources to just about anything industrial new and used. If anybody is interested in anything I have mentioned above or just needs advice on anything give me a call. I will be posting my machine list and capabilities in the next few days.
