Model. EA-FW3040-4S is a cnc router dedicated to foam and wood industrial foundry patterns making. With the 4 axis construction design, the spindle can swing ±120° along the Y-axis. (This is also known as B-axis) Compared with the 3-axis cnc pattern making machine, 4 axis one has more possibility on CNC machining. As we know, 3-axis one can only process one surface at a time, while 4 axis can process three faces in one working cycle. In addition to the jobs that 3-axis machines can do, 4-axis CNC can mill foam or wood molds with the cambered surface; as well, it can mill complicated industrial foundry patterns that need process on three surfaces.


That's not to say that 3-axis can not make a complicated foundry job that needs multiple sides milling. It can also do, but it just mill only one side at a time, to finish the whole foundry pattern, you'll have to stop the router machine and turn the faces two times manually. Undoubtedly, processing this way is time costly and worse on precision. Therefore, using a 4-axis equipment will be more efficient for such jobs.

Unique Technics Applied To EagleTec CNC Router Machine for Foam Wood

• Unlike others who are using a planner milling machine to mill the various mounting bases, EagleTec uses a 5-axis CNC machining center to grind the different mounting planes at a time (one-time clamping) and utterly control the machining error within 0.02 mm. (For your information, the machining error of the planer mill is as high as 2mm, which is 100 times that of the CNC machining center.) Following is the photo of 5 axis machining center, which is the parent machine tool of EagleTec foam routers

• To guarantee the high-precision performance of the machine, other precision mechanical parts are finished by HAAS CNC machine tools instead of regular planner machines. 

Advanced Configuration of EagleTec CNC Router for Foam Wood Industry Foundry Pattern

• Spindle is electronic type, air cooling ATC spindle 9.0KW, HSD brand, made in Italy. Superior performance, stable and reliable, zero maintenance. The designed lifespan is 6 to 8 years.

• (B Axis) Adopting the harmonic reducer dedicated to imported robots, the output torque is tremendous, zero clearance, and the spindle can swing freely ±120°, which can meet the automatic and rapid cnc machining of complex products with multiple curved surfaces. (Looking for a 4 axis rotary? Please check out cnc foam milling machine EA-FW2540-4R.

• The cnc router for foam wood is equipped with a linear tool magazine and an automatic tool calibration unit. The tool change system enables to replace tools without stopping the machine. Significantly reduced the time spent on tool change and zero points clear, and increased the production output.

• Dedicated 4-axis cutting control system – Model SYNTEC 60W-E; Control panel is an industrial computer with a monitor. System language will be English for machines sent to abroad. A handheld control unit comes with the controller as well. It also comes with an emergency stop button. Furthermore, it has programming options needed to process and create the controllers of linear-circular and other types of interpolations. It has the possibility to operate in manual, automatic, and interactive mode of operation.

• The SYNTEC absolute value AC servo is matched with the planetary reducer as the transmission unit, which is more reliable and faster. Additionally, controlled via SYNTEC System, the motion drive system is a closed-loop mechanism that ensures diagnostics of technical parameters of operation of the drive assemblies and units during machine operation for the purpose of no-failure operation of machine under the predetermined process conditions.

• The legs are made of big square tubes, the ribs are welded inside; the beam and Z-axis are welded with high-strength steel plate, and processed by the tempering and stress relief treatment. So the architecture is guaranteed for ten years of life without being contorted. 

• The machine base of cnc router for foam is welded with high-rigidity steel structure, box-shaped structure, thick-walled and multi-ribbed, and via multiple stress elimination process, so that the machine tool has excellent rigidity. The same, the construction is guaranteed to offer you ten years of operation without deformation.

FAQs About CNC Router for Foam and Wood Mould Making

Q: Can We Equip This CNC Foam Router Machine with A Water-Cooled Spindle?

A: The machine could not match with the water-cooled spindle. It depends on motion head construction (4-axis). There are two reasons:

• The water-cooled spindle has a heavy load for the 4-axis mechanism, and the result is that the machining performance cannot reach the best.

• Also, if the 4-axis is equipped with water cooling, it will affect the cooling effect of the spindle itself, and the result is that the spindle's lifespan is shortened.

How can we get this giant foam router accommodated in a container for shipping?

Well, a good question. The router machine here is giant in size. Disassembly is required for container loading. The legs on both sides and the beam will be knocked down; then, they are placed on the machine base (table) and will be well fixed. The last step is to pack the whole set with PVC wrapping films and other essential fixtures. This machine can be shipped to any country by sea shipment. 

How to assemble it back once the machine reaches us?

Specific guide instructions concerning this job will be provided to you, which includes necessary technical documentation for installation. Some customers can handle it well with our guide book. If you don’t think you can do that, our engineers can be dispatched to you for onsite installation, pre-commissioning, and training. And you’ll need to bear all the relevant costs concerning the trip.
