The CNC milling machines of the ML 3000F series will give you more freedom when milling any 3D objects or sculptures out of Styrofoam. But the ML 3000F mills won't stop there - they will shape any working material such as wood, acrylics and PVCs and eat into it like a hungry wolf. The kicker: a horizontally rotating axis (lathe) in addition to the three spatial axes. The computer controlled milling on four axes can create shapes and sculptures, which so far were only possible by means of casting, lathing or turning. This is what makes this ML 3000F so perfect to become your alpha wolf in your machine park. It's the ideal milling machine for the commercial trade, backdrop constructions and in the field of research.

A Styrofoam milling machine will open up possibilities that a hot wire cutting machine cannot provide - or only with extremely complicated efforts. Hollow objects, for example for model building, are easily milled and shaped out of the material. If you were to use a hot cutting wire, it would first have to be bend into the correct profile form and then hollow out the object by using a plunge cutter. Another way to create the desired form would be to glue several layers together and build up the object that way, but obviously this would also demand a lot of time and effort. However, the Styrofoam milling machine ML 3000F will get this job done in no time.
One invaluable advantage of the 3000 series is the horizontally rotating axis, otherwise known as lathe. This additional fourth axis allows the mill to create 3D spirals and helical shaped objects, which are usually manufactured on a turning lathe.Contact
With its sturdy machine table made of welded steel pipes, the ML 3000F is very much a professional device. The fast positioning of 6 m/min. makes this unit all the more suitable for commercial and industrial applications. As it is a CNC machine, the 3000 series literally works on its own: simply load it with the product, call up the shaping program and the computer will control the entire process. The ML 3000F series is optimized for the following applications:
The health of your employees is very important to us. Therefore we would like to point out the obvious: any milling machine will produce plenty of dust and particles as a waste product. To protect the health of your employees, these waste products should be extracted permanently and continuously. So, when you order your milling machine from us, we highly recommend to also add the extractor fan styro Vac 2000 to your order.
As the ML 3000F works mostly on its own and unattended, hearing protection is really only necessary when a worker is near the machine. The general rule of thumb: the harder the milled material is, the louder the process will be.
Our sister company Hartschaumzuschnitte Ilmenau manufactures foam objects from EPS, XPS and other materials on a daily basis. The extensive experience and practical knowledge continuously improves and is applied to our machines and software.
Hence the reason why our cnc-multitool customers receive only hardware and software that has been tested and used by our very own staff and operators - literally from practical use to user practice. We are happy to help with any queries and offer a free consultation to find out which ML 3000F milling machine is right for you. Give us a call right now.Contact
The ML 3000F needs intelligent and sophisticated software to perform at its best. Good to know: the ML 3000F generally comes with a 3 axes CAM software as standard, just like our CNC hot wire cutting machines CUT 3000S.
Within our group of companies, cnc-multitool uses the exact same software and with its huge variety of functions, we still very much focus on keeping the operation simple. Part of that is the easy import and export of your data via standardized data exchange formats. They basically provide the bridge to generally used well-known programs such as AutoCAD, Solidworks or Autodesk Inventor.
The setup of the CNC milling machine takes around 180 minutes. You will receive the ML 3000F ready to use: completely assembled and fully tested. cnc-multitool grants a warranty of 2 years on the Styrofoam milling machine. The delivery also includes …
The entire ML 3000F series was designed with commercial production in mind. It starts with the insatiable wolf-like hunger, with which the ML 3000F eats its way into Styrofoam and other materials, and it continues with the extremely fast positioning of 10m/min. and the milling with 4 axes. And the longevity of this unit just highlights the fact that this professional machine was developed and built in Germany. Here is an overview of the most important features:
The working bench and machine table of the 3000 series is made of welded and painted steel. On request, we will also deliver it as a vacuum table, which makes the loading and fastening of the raw materials much easier. Styrofoam blocks can be easily clamped down, whilst some other raw materials may be secured with double-sided adhesive tape.
The milling machine of the ML 3000F series can be equipped with a cutter of up to 300 mm long and with a diameter of up to 30 mm. For Styrofoam we also offer special rasp milling cutters.
Have you ever seen a Styrofoam milling machine with 4 axes live in action? Once you get to see how this ML 3000F series works, you will be very surprised. We will be more than happy to show you the seamless coordination and interaction between our high performance hardware and software - right here in our plant in Ilmenau, Germany. Do you have any questions? Why don't you give us a call! Or simply send us a quick message.Contact
