Ray-Ran CNC Model 1 Test Sample Profile Cutter

The CNC Sample Profile Cutter used for Test Sample Preparation and 3D prototyping, and is recommended for use with thicker sheet materals or pipe sections as it can cut up to 40mm thick




The 3-axis rapid prototyping vertical milling machine is ideal for cutting hard dense polymer sheets and laminates up to 40mm thick as well as polyethylene and polypropylene pipes that are used within the gas and water industry. The versatility of the machine makes it ideal for Research and Development departments, Laboratories, and Universities.

The CNC1 comes with a bed size of 500mm x 440mm which has tennon slots for clamping down the sample. Travel distances on the X, Y, and Z axis are 300mm x 250mm x 100mm respectively, and are fitted with high-quality lead screws and linear guide rails for precision and accuracy. The high-speed spindle is variable from 2400 rpm to 24000 rpm and has a milling cutter capacity of up to 10mm diameter. Cutting feed ranges up to 1100mm/min can be achieved for a fast accurate milling process with each axis driven and controlled by advanced stepper motor technology. Pipework is supplied as standard for air cooling to reduce the cutter temperature when machining components and the machine can also be fitted with dust extraction. The fully enclosed cabinet has an internal light and an electrical safety interlock to ensure operator safety when the cabinet door is in the open position.

For work holding, a standard clamping kit can be supplied or bespoke clamping fixtures can be designed and manufactured by Ray-Ran to meet customer’s requirements.

The CNC1 is supplied with Flashcut CNC software which is a dedicated real-time CNC program for use on a PC or Laptop. It interfaces effortlessly with the machine and uses industry-standard numerical control G-Code and Letter addresses for programming. Pre-written CNC programs are available direct from Ray-Ran for any shape or size of the test sample or to any International test standard.
