OpenBuilds C-Beam CNC Machine
The C-Beam Machine® (assembly required) is a CNC machine designed to be suitable for cutting custom plates and other projects in harder materials.
The C-Beam® Machine is based on the popular V-Slot® linear guide system and uses C-Beams, the stiffest V-slot rail to date for its linear actuators. The C-Beam® design incorporates a C-shaped profile and a lead screw based motion system, which gives added strength and functionality. With the correct end mills and settings, the C-Beam® Machine is capable of cutting and milling materials such as:
- Aluminum and other non-ferrous metals
- Oak and other hardwoods
- Any much more!
The C-Beam machine is modular and based on opensource hardware and design plans, making it easy to modify and configure the machine based on your own needs!
