Impact CNC Thunder Router Series

Impact CNC Thunder routers can cut a wide variety of materials including:

  • Timber
  • MDF
  • Aluminium Composite
  • Plastics
  • Foam
  • Soft Metals and much more

Both the steel table-frame and gantry on the Thunder are manufactured to the highest standard, ensuring outstanding rigidity.

All 3 axes are powered by economical, reliable and quiet Stepper motors which provide a good mix of torque and power. Upgrades to AC Servo motors are available.

The X and Y axes run on square THK linear bearings and rails to ensure smooth and accurate travel.  These bearings are factory-sealed and provide maintenance free reliability.

Cutting on the Thunder is performed by a 5.5kw air-cooled Manual Tool-Change spindle.

Materials are held down with a powerful, air-cooled vacuum-pump and dust is efficiently removed with the Impact CNC dust extraction system which is included as standard.

All these components are driven by the easy-to-use NC-Studio CNC controller.
