About the Merlin CNC Router
Meet the All new Merlin CNC Router. Built from the ground up and fully designed here in the UK. With an extensive feature set not normally seen on a CNC machine in this price range.
With a rigid stress tested body, reliable set of components and first class service from Mantech Machinery Ltd, this CNC machine is on the top of many a workshops list. All of our Merlin CNC routers come with full installation and training, carried out by our own in-house team of friendly, knowledgeable CNC engineers.
Each Merlin comes with our own in-house developed M-Tech Motion Control System, full customisation and an extensive feature set that has unrivalled granular control over your CNC router.
Our Merlin can be upgraded from manual tool change to auto tool change!
Leaders in the industry, our Merlin CNC router has also been designed with a clear upgrade path to Auto Tool Change. No longer do you have to buy a separate machine if you wanted to upgrade in the future. With our unique upgrade system you can save money, purchase the Merlin and only pay to upgrade your current machine. Mantech constantly strive to offer our customers the very best experience when it comes to our range of affordable, feature rich machinery.
A Well Built, Feature Rich CNC Router
The Merlin range of routers are used in a huge array of sectors such as:
- Furniture production
- Ply Lining
- Custom Products
- Marine engineering
- Auto engineering
- Pharmaceutical & chemical
- Construction and many more…
Fast, affordable, reliable. With advances in our own research and development our Merlin range has become a class leading CNC machine that is often used for manufacturing signs, custom furniture, tool box foam inserts, Corian work surfaces, profile cutting and drilling, wood carving, conveyor belt production, bespoke products, soft metal processing, set and model making, Exhibition stands and POS manufacture. The list goes on!
The Merlin CNC Router range is a powerhouse in it’s own right, it may not have the Auto Tool Change capabilities of it’s bigger brother the Apollo ATC, however If you don’t require auto tool change as a feature, then the Merlin CNC router is a fantastic choice for any workshop.
What Can the M-Tech CNC Motion Control System do?
Control your CNC router via touch operation (including traditional methods such as mouse and keyboard).
Familiar operating environment – easy to use, not many people/operators don’t know how to use MS Windows.
Connect the machine to your network – easy transfer files from your design department to the CNC.
Third Party Software
As this is a windows based machine, run other software such as V-carve or Alphacam, directly at the machine.
Touch Based Vacuum
Control your vacuum zones via touch – vacuum can also be automatically operated when the machine starts and stops (energy saving and convenient)
Control your machine with your wireless pendant for ultimate granular controls. Including custom macro functions assigned to your pendant.
Material Location Stops Control
Automatic operation of location stops, enabling you to accurately ‘locate’ your work material onto the vacuum bed for location in the same place, every time.
Work-piece Simulation Mode
Get a 3D view of your project and simulate processing just before cutting. Saving on waste materials by checking for errors before you commence.
Easily see how long the cutting process will take with accurate time measurements.
The system constantly reads g-code multiple steps ahead of the actual movement, analysing and adjusting pre the event. Extremely efficient operation.
Enhanced Spindle Control
As our motion control system uses an analogue rather than digital signal, you can get granular control over your spindle speed, right down to 1 rpm increments.
Enhanced Tool Change Control (ATC Models Only)
Direct control over tool changes including speed, distance and clearance.
Accurate tool measurement (ATC Models Only)
Extremely accurate tool length measurement, taking tool wear into consideration.
Enables the user to make alterations to the g-code. Including a jump to line function.
Built-in support for up-to 6 axis
M-tech allows for support for up-to 6 axis, included within the software. Allowing for upgrades such as a rotary axis tool or aggregate head function.
