Sharp ATC

Full automatic CNC Router

Sharp-ATC is our top line router, full function 8 position auto tool changer. We use Italian Osai, flexible and powerful control system as the central control unit on the machine.  OPEN-XS is a modular system that offers both a solution for the control of servo-drives and I/O modules distributed on a digital fieldbus and also for controlling analog axes and integrated I/O.
The main features of OPEN-XS allow having high finishing quality and an optimized management of machining centers:

  • Gantry and dual axes management
  • Look-ahead with 256 pre-calculated blocks
  • Velocity Feed Forward (VFF)
  • Jerk control using advanced algorithms
  • Management of tool magazine, tool life, random tool, multi-pocket tool
  • Multi-axis electronic CAM
  • Cross Compensation

This CNC Machine is engineered to provide a smooth, vibration-free cut. Made of a 3⁄8 inch thick steel tube, the gantry is welded, stress relieved and precision machined.


Sharp-ATC Details580-SharpATC

Top of the line auto tool changing CNC router for fast paced production. SharpTM-ATC comes equipped with an 8-position tool holder, 35mm rails, helical rack and pinion, 12KW Italian made spindle and Osai-Open control system. This machine weighs over 2200lbs and is constructed with ½” thick structural tubing welded into a single piece. Gantry bridge is also made of steel, which suppresses and absorbs the forces created during cutting. To keep cost and maintenance low, we’ve loaded this router only with essentials needed for shops running nested base programing (cabinet makers, fabricators, millwork, furniture makers, etc.). With an automatic tool changer, Travel sensor, tool sensor, tool compensation, auto lubrication and graphical user interface – the SharpTM-ATC is the router to take your production to the next level.

Vacuum hold down pumps

  • RGB550 – 16HP double stage regenerative blower pump with 365 CFM airflow and 17 inHg. This is a high flow pump and only generate noise at 78db. Unlike rotary vane pumps regen pumps have no maintenance and work with high air flow which works great on CNC machines with multi zones and big inlet line.
