“Are you frustrated that low-end desktop CNC mills don’t have the rigidity and quality components to give you those mirror like surface finishes? Do you dream of having the rigidity and precision of a truly professional machine on your desk? We’ve created the Abdi Automation DMC3 and DMC3 Plus; a desktop CNC Mill that features components and hardware usually only seen on professional machining centers.
We have taken what makes professional machining centers so great, and scaled that down for your desk. From the precision cast solid epoxy aggregate base, that has an internal vibration damping factor 5 times greater than cast iron. To the precise Hiwin linear guides on all 3 axis with anti backlash ball screws, and the 24000 rpm spindle with feed rates up to 130in/min. The Abdi Automation DMC3 and DMC3 Plus has everything you could ever want in a desktop CNC milling machine. Making it possible to fulfill the true beauty of your designs.”
