How to Choose a Good 3D CNC Router Machine

CNC Router is more and more popular for furniture, door, cabinet woodworking areas and advertising fields in the world due to its wisdom, intelligent, fast speed and high working efficiency.  All the developed countries like Germany, the USA and Japan, and even China are paying more and more attention to this industry developing.  It is the 21st industry tendency.  But there are hundreds of CNC router manufacturers and thousands of brand router machines in the market.  Customers are always confused and don’t know how to buy a good CNC Router machine. Today ForsunCNC ( will introduce some factors in CNC Router buying and tell you what is the best CNC Router.

Why we should buy a 3d CNC Router woodworking machine?

1, Widely used in different applications
​Furniture Industries: panel furniture, office furniture, customized furniture, solid wood furniture
Wooden product industries: voice box, game cabinets, computer tables, sewing machine tables, and music instruments
Boards processing: PCB, inner bodies of high-speed railway, tracks of a bowling ball, compact grade laminates, ABS, PP, PE and another carbo mixed compound
Decoration industries: acrylic PMMA, PVC, MDF and plastics
2, Fast speed working speed and high efficiency
Take a set of the closet making, for example,  if the cabinet maker wants to make a 50m2 cabinet, it will need 5 people to work one week with the traditional working method. But it will only need two people to finish the closet manufacture in 4 hours within 4 hours by the 3d CNC router woodworking machine.  It can save so much time and labor.  Time is money. Saving labors is also saving money.
3, High intelligence working and material saved
We also take the closet as an example, the cabinet maker only can make the regular format with the traditional ways and waste a lot of materials.  But with the 3D CNC Router woodworking machines, the cabinet maker can do any customized format or different style products to meet the people’s special request. And because the software can do nesting during the closet design, this will make the material used more than 95%.  But the traditional workings only can use the materials at about 60-75%.

What kinds of factors should we care about when to choose a CNC Router?

1, What do we want to do with the CNC Router machine?
If we are a big woodworking company,  we should focus on the machine working speed, high efficiency, and configuration
If we are a fresh user, we should think about the machine price and easy use.
If we want to work on furniture like a door or cabinet,  we should take care of the max panel size
If we want to use the machine in advertising areas,  the machine simple functions will be the first choice.
2, Different configurations for different use
Working size
The customer should buy a machine according to their maximum working size of the material.  For example, if you are from Asia countries, the max working panel is 1300*2500mm. Then the machine 1325 is ok; If you are from Turkey, Tunisia or other Arab countries, the max panel size is 2100*4100mm, then the 2141 model is ok; If you are from the USA, there are two kinds of panels. One is 4*8, and one is 5*10, so you should check well and then buy.
Generally speaking, there are water cooling spindle and air cooling spindle.  If you want to work on soft material at a low cost, then the water smaller kilowatt spindle is a good choice. But if you want to save space and working on hard material like wood, soft metal etc, the big power air-cooling spindle will be a better choice. If your budget is allowed, then the HSD spindle from Italy can be considered due to its reputation. But if the money is not enough, the Chinese spindle is also good enough but a much lower cost.
If we regard the CNC Route as the body, the controller will be the brain in the machine. It is the core position.  If the customer needs fast speed and a more developed CNC Router machine, then the Siemens controller from Germany or Osai from Italy will be the best choice.  But if you don’t have so much money but also want to have a similar advanced machine, then the China Syntec controller or Wehong or NC studio will be good as well.  If you want to easily and lower cost, then the DSP or Mach3 will be recommended.
Guide brand
The famous brand guide usually includes TBI, PMI, HIVIN and so on. And helical racks with such a brand guide will make sure the machine can run very smooth with high precision.

Others importance
