Medina, MN (PRWEB) October 08, 2015
Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the CNC Piranha Fx 3-D and Laser Bundle, a computer-controlled machine that features interchangeable routing, 3-D printing and laser-etching modules. The three modes offer a variety of machining options using wood, soft metals and plastic materials, metals and plastic materials.
The Maker Movement is in full swing, and many makers are seeking machining solutions that offer the broadest capabilities without taking up a great deal of space. The Piranha Fx combines the capabilities of a CNC router, 3-D printer and laser engraver, all in less than 4 square feet of table or bench space. The very precise CNC machining allows users to make anything from detailed relief carvings and photographic engravings to 3-D figures, prototypes and much more.
"The Piranha Fx is a maker revolution all by itself," says Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president of merchandising and product development. "It's the first of its kind, delivering three completely different working modes in one compact machine."
The Piranha Fx features computer-controlled servo motors that maneuver the machining module (router, 3-D printer or laser engraver). XYZ travel of the machine is 12" x 13" x 3" for routing and 12" x 12" x 3" for 3-D printing and laser engraving. T-track slots that run the entire length of the work table allow clamping at any position. Setup is very user friendly once the software is installed on the user's host computer. The color touch screen pendant controller system provides a user-friendly interface to execute the machining tasks.
The CNC Piranha Fx 3-D and Laser Bundle (59224) is priced at $3,199.99 and can be purchased at rockler.com or Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, as well as through the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, visit http://www.rockler.com or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
