The Advantage and Disadvantage of Anilam Crusader and 1100 CNC Machine

The lab is equipped with some different CNC mills. To help you choose the right machine for your needs, this article lists the strengths and weaknesses of each of the machines.


Anilam Crusader
           There are two crusader mills in the lab. They are both 2-axis CNC machines. The user interface is primitive and simple with limited capabilities. Canned cycles for simple shapes are available.

Advantages
  • Simple interface, easy to learn and master 
  • Since it is only a 2-axis machine, you need to specify only the feed rate and toolpath in your CAM program very reliable 
  • Some canned cycles available for various geometric shapes. (spirals, ellipses, etc.)

    Disadvantages
    • No 3-axis capability 
    • Tool changes and z feed must be done manually. limited bed width (max 12” Y movement). Spindle speed limited to 2800 rpm

      1100
      There is one 1100 series 2-axis milling machine. It provides an easier programming interface than the Crusaders.

      Advantages
      • Simple interface, more capabilities than the Crusader series 
      • Since it is only a 2-axis machine, you need to specify only the feed rate and toolpath in your CAM program The canned cycles provided are easy to program directly on the machine. The 1100 has a power feed Z-axis. (manually controlled)
