The CBM3 is a design by 3D Tech which is a upgraded version of the entry level OB C-Beam Machine.  This machine is available fully assembled only.  Several improvements have been made to the original design, including

  • significant increase in X axis rigidity using C-beam uprights
  • larger machineable area than its predecessor
  • improved X/Z axis using stock plates
  • integrated electronics
  • table support to increase rigidity
  • ability to use double router mount
  • aluminum table standard
The frame has been upgraded by using c-beam uprights that go right to the base of the machine instead of lighter uprights sitting on top of the base rails.  The X axis c-beam has additional rigidity by tying it to the secondary support rail.  Light duty Universal gantry plates are replaced by much heavier C-Beam XL plates with additional wheels.  Added wheels running in tracks on both sides of the moving table provide much better support for the table and eliminate table flex.  Mor wheels on the Y axis actuator strengthen the table.
 
This is a very stiff machine designed to machine wood,  light aluminum, and engrave on wood, metal, and plastics.  Also idea for making circuit boards.  The aluminum table allows for the use of a mist lubricator to facilitate machining non-ferrous metals.
 
All these modifications were done without adding a lot of cost to the original design.
