High-Z S-400 CNC Machine

High-Z S-400 CNC Machine

Precision German Engineered Quality with Dedicated UK support

A multi-purpose CNC machine with routing, milling, drilling, engraving, sculpting capabilities. Work with many materials including woods, MDF, modelling wax/resins, foams, plastics such as PVC and plexiglass through to metals such as Aluminium, Brass, Copper and sheet steel. Cut foils and vinyl for stencils or sign art. Mill Printed Circuit Boards and create front panels and enclosures for your prototypes.

  • Machine Working Area: X=400 mm; Y=300 mm; Z= 110 mm
  • Enhanced power and precision through the use of 2 motors on the X-Axis. This arrangement provides for a constant tension and compression during milling operations.
  • Only high quality bearings and guideways used to provide smooth precision of operation (repeatability +/- 30µm).
  • X and Y guide ways are hardened and grinded, with double sets of bearings used along with precision trapezium thread lead screws.
  • Traverse rapid feed max. 4000 mm/min, Working feed max. 3000 mm/min
  • Resolution 0.003 mm (1/10 Step)
  • Reference switches on all axes with software limit control.
  • Double safety emergency stop button
  • Energy chain for clean cabling
  • Milling Motor anchorage: Euroneck 43mm
  • Modular frame for universal application
  • Table size/clamping area: 730 x 390 mm
  • Total dimensions incl. motors : LxWxH = appr. 796x570x570mm
  • Machine comes complete with a 4-axis, 5-channel (peak 3.5A per channel) microstepping driver. The drive consists of 4 qulaity Nanotec stepping motors (2X, Y, Z, A) with 2000 steps/rev (1/10 Step).
  • Machine comes with KinetiC-NC Ethernet Control System. KinetiC-NC software application runs on Windows 10 PC (supplied by customer). The KinetiC-NC hardware control module requires an ethernet port and a spare USB port.
  • 2 Year Warranty.


Note: The machines are made to order for each customer and it will take 4 weeks for a standard factory build. The machines will arrive on a pallet and someone will need to be on location to receive the order. Two people will be required to lift the machines safely, due to the size and weight of the machines.

    HI, Does it only run on the Vectric software (CAM) package, can it be used with 3rd party software, I'm factoring it into setup costs? I'm looking at an S-400
    Many thanks. Joolz

    The machines come with KinetiC-NC, an ethernet based hardware and associated Windows application. CAD/CAM packages need only to be able to post process the G-Code into the KinetiC-NC format. Vectric's software has the built in post processor, as does Autodesk Fusion 360. VCarve Pro is more accessible, but artwork is 2D drawing or STL 3D model import. For Fusion 360 you can build complex parametric 3D models and post the CAM output, and is therefore more sophisticated, but with a longer associated learning curve. If this is your first machine and experience with CNC, I would recommend VCarve Pro to get you up and running the quickest.

    Will this unit handle cuttting brass at no more that 5mm deep ?

    20-08-2020, 09:04

    For cutting metals, we recommend the T models. Here is an example of the T-720 cutting brass 3D relief https://youtu.be/he7MVKuQ9HM?t=12. Yes you can cut deep, generally the strategy is defined in the CAD/CAM software to cut in multiple passes to achieve the required depth of cut.

    I was thinking of this to depanalise fiberglass pcbs using gerber data is this a possibilty

    14-08-2019, 15:58

    Yes, the machines are well suited for this application. For ultimate speed and precision, consider the T-400 model. If you can generate a DXF format directly from your ECAD software, this can be imported directly into the KinetiC-NC controller software. Additionally look at software such as https://www.galaad.net/coppercam-eng.html which can also generate isolation milling paths for PCB tracks and takes PCB Gerber format as input and can export a DXF file.
