Project 'Piranha' is a high-end CNC machine meant to serve anyone who has bigger requirements to stiffness than the V-wheel/V-slot linear guide system can deliver. The Piranha will be the ideal machine both for experiend user as well as the inexperienced enthusiasts. Piranha is a convenient tool that can help with small- to medium-sized wood, plastic or aluminum projects in your home or professional workshop. Easy to build and easy to use!
The Piranha is equipped with strong 15mm linear guide rails and corresponding blocks. Mounted on strong C-Beam it will give the machine extra strength. Gantry plates are made in 6mm solid aluminum. The transmission will be all lead screw driven similar to LEAD 1515 machine.
We plan to make three models: 1010, 1015 and 1515. The development work is a joint effort between makersupplies.dk and some interns from Copenhagen School of Design and Technology
We now have a working prototype with all gantry plates milled in aluminum. Say Hello to the Piranha CNC
To be continued …….
