Traditional CNC routers have relied on ball screw and rack and pinion systems, limiting the axis movement and speed, and with the obvious maintenance requirements with “metal to metal” contact. The GS 710 now uses the very latest linear drive system which, in essence, “floats” upon a cushion of air,
eliminating wear and with obvious maintenance saving. Traditional CNC routing speeds are usually between 8 – 24 metres per minute but, during the Atlanta exhibition, the GS 710 reached the routing speed of 90
metres per minute under trial condition!
