Bantam Tools Introduces New Desktop CNC 4th Axis Accessory

Turn a three-axis CNC into a four-axis CNC and level-up skills

Published: Thursday, March 17, 2022 - 12:00

(Bantam Tools: Peekskill, NY) -- The fourth axis has come to Bantam Tools, which is excited to announce the new Bantam Tools Desktop CNC 4th Axis Accessory. This beginner-friendly accessory empowers users to expand the abilities of the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine to include fourth-axis machining. You can machine parts with more complex geometries, grow your machining skill set, and expand your capabilities beyond just three axes.

“It feels awesome to be able to introduce the new Bantam Tools Desktop CNC 4th Axis Accessory,” says Bre Pettis, CEO of Bantam Tools. “When milling a job that calls for multiple flips, index milling, or continuous milling, this accessory is fully integrated with the latest model of the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine that’s 4th Axis compatible and our intuitive Bantam Tools Milling Machine software. To get users up to speed, we are also offering the first Bantam Tools educational course that levels-up fourth-axis skills. We developed this educational course specifically for this accessory to help users build their fourth-axis machining skills and will have additional courses coming later this year.”

The new accessory is designed to be beginner-friendly and expand machining capabilities to include fourth-axis machining. It’s a gateway into fourth-axis machining, and a tool customers can use to grow their machining skills. It makes complex parts more attainable and offers more machining options for 3D surfacing while reducing complexity for parts that require machining on multiple sides. It empowers users to turn their three-axis Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine into a four-axis machine quickly and easily.

“Being able to offer a fourth-axis accessory for the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine is a game changer for those looking to level-up their skills,” says Pettis. “To be able to offer the fourth-axis accessory for $499 is something a lot of our customers, who are world changers and skill builders, are really excited about.”

The Bantam Tools Desktop CNC 4th Axis Accessory can only be used with a Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine that is fourth-axis compatible. The Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine is compatible with this accessory if it has a “4th Axis Compatible” sticker on the front of the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine’s enclosure or if there is a fourth-axis harness running along the inner-left side of the Bantam Tools Desktop CNC Milling Machine.
