CNC Shark HD4 Extended Bed With Laser

CNC Shark HD4 Extended Bed With Laser

The extended base Shark offers a whopping 50” of Y-axis capacity—the largest of any Shark to date. And thanks to upgraded electronics, a color touch-screen pendant controller and additional expansion ports, it has become more versatile and easy-to-use than ever. The Shark HD4 Extended Bed features larger linear guides, plus automatic alignment features such as auto edge sensing, auto center locating, rotational sensing and XY homing capability. Like past models, it includes Virtual Zero software, which maps the surface of your workpiece for maximum accuracy. It features a gantry reinforced with heavy plate aluminum, adjustable bearings, and anti-backlash, wear-compensated lead screws on all three axes, allowing it to handle larger routers such as the Porter Cable 890 series, Bosch 1617 series and production quality water-cooled spindles. Perfect for carving and machining a large variety of projects made from wood, soft metals or plastics. Simply supply a PC computer with USB 2.0 port and any of the routers listed below, connect the USB cable to the controller box and load the software. Includes VCarve Pro 8.5 Design software, Vector Art 3D Sampler Pack, and CNC Shark control software.
