Introduction:

The huge 5'x10' (greenBull 5X) has the ability to mill up to 5'x10' sheets, so if you're milling sheets that come wider than 4 feet, the 5X has that little extra size you need to get the job done in no time.
Table Not Included

Description:

Bigger. Faster. Stronger.

The greenBull 5X Heavy Duty CNC is a fully equipped CNC machine kit that will allow you to mill full length 5' x 10' sheets. So if you're milling Baltic Birch that comes in standard 5' x 5' sheets, this is a perfect machine for you.

The 5X is designed to go well above and beyond what is usually expected out of a budget-priced CNC. The cutting area of 5'x10' is generally much larger than what you'll find in this target price range. The heavy duty gantry is designed to take a pounding day in and day out.

The greenBull series, like all our machines, is American-made in the great state of Texas. Whether you're looking to automate the process for general woodworking applications, cabinetry, sign-making, construction, or milling other material like acrylic or light aluminum, the greenBull has the power to significantly reduce your production time.

Like with the other greenBull machines, we give you the option to throw a 40W CO2 laser tube onto the gantry. This allows you to do milling and laser engraving on the same machine.

You'll be hard-pressed to find another machine on the market with this kind of capability at a similar price.

Technical Stuff

The greenBull 5X features a standard travel size of 5 feet by 10 feet. It can be equipped with a dual laser/spindle combo Z-axis.

  • Actual table dimension for the 5'x10' are 67.3587"x145.5" (the overhang in the illustrations should be 3/4" thick)
  • The overall design has increased rigidity for the new routing/milling area but still maintains the aesthetics that are common across all of the machines on this site.
  • To guarantee that the gantry doesn't flex at all, a series of ribs were added within the gantry box making the entire gantry very similar to a torsion box.
  • The motors selected for all of the axes are NEMA 34 with 1/2" shafts (driven by 6.0 amp drivers).
  • The dust shoe is redesigned to provide better dust extraction capability.

Important Things to Know:

  • The entire machine kit will take about 10-14 business days to produce and send out under normal circumstances. During busy periods this could increase to 15-21 business days. You can always contact us for an accurate estimate before purchasing. Assembled Machines will take longer as they have to be produced to order. Expect a lead time of 3-4 weeks for assembled machines.
  • We include a standard amount of 50 feet of motor cable for the greenBull 5X. The recommended length is for systems in which the computer will be placed right next to the machine. If you plan on having the computer further away from the machine you will need to purchase longer cable lengths. If you are unsure about how many feet of cable you need, please call or email us and we will assist you.
  • If you are purchasing a 2.2KW Spindle with Inverter, Laser Attachment, or both, you will need a water cooling system for each. This is a simple system using silicon tubing, a water pump and a 5 gallon bucket
  • The Spindle will require 12/3, 14/3, or 16/3 gauge cable for wiring from the inverter to the wall. You will also need 4 conductor wire for wiring the Spindle to the inverter as a 4th wire for ground is needed. It is important to understand the electrical requirements for wiring the Spindle, so for this reason we strongly recommend you check with a licensed electrician before attempting to wire it.
  • Table (Frame) Dimensions:

    • Actual table dimension: 5'x10' is 67.3587"x145.5" (the overhang in the illustrations should be 3/4" thick)
    • To determine the frame dimensions, first consider using the frame height shown of almost 3' (2.86'). The width of the frame should be 4" narrower than the dimension from rail edge to rail edge (5X rail to rail is 67.3587"). This will provide a 2" overhang on both sides (5X frame width should be 63.3587").

    • The length of the frame should be 4" shorter than the desired length of the rails to provide a 2" overhang on both ends. The travel length will be 20" shorter than the rail length due to the space occupied by the gantry sides.
    • Two long pieces of 3/4" material will need to be placed on top of the frame with the 2" overhang on the sides and the end. These long strips of material will receive the rails and the chain mounts on the ends.

Instructions

General requirements for the under frame of the cnc machine. Here we make suggestions on how the frame can be constructed. A torsion box is also constructed, which is optional.

1

The torsion box is completed. Note: The torsion box has been discontinued.

2

The four (4) corner chain mounts are assembled and fastened to the four corners of the bed.

3

The front of the gantry is fastened with the top and bottom supports of the gantry. The ribs are fastened to the interior of the gantry. The y-axis rail support is fastened to the gantry front. Use only the number of ribs that are provided in the kit. There will be space for more, but they are not needed. The gantry sides are installed after the ribs.

4

The z-axis components are assembled, which includes the structural components of the z-axis length and rail supports and the router mounts.

5

The y-axis rails are installed onto the y-axis rail support piece that is at the front of the gantry.

6

The X-axis rails are fastened to the bed of the cnc machine.

7

The v-groove beariings are installed onto the z/y plate. The anti-backlash nut support is fastened to the z/y plate. The z/y plate is slid onto the y-axis rails on the front of the gantry.

8

The y-axis motor assembly is installed onto the z/y plate. This includes the y-axis motor mount, the idler sprocket fore the roller chain, the drive sprocket on the shaft of the y-axis motor, and the y-axis motor.

9

The y-axis chain is routed under the drive sprocket and over the idler sprocket, and the chain mounts and fastened to each end of the gantry to hold each end of the chain. Instead of using the hose clamps to tie the ends of the roller chain, #4 screws and nuts are used.

10

The z-axis assembly is installed between the bearings of the z/y plate. The z-axis motor mount is fastened to the top of the z-axis assembly. The z-axis mechanical components (bearings, collars and anti-backlash nut) is added to the assembly through the motor mount and the bearing support. The z-axis motor is installed onto the z-axis motor mount. The gantry is slid on the table rails.

11

The x-axis motor is installed within the interior of the gantry. The shafts that extend to the gantry sides that hold the drive sprockets are coupled to the x-axis motor. The roller chain is routed below the idler sprockets and above the drive sprocket and tied to the ends of the table to the chain mounts. Instead of using the hose clamps to tie the ends of the roller chain, #4 screws and nuts are used.

12

Wiring from the motors to the drivers is explained.

13

This video shows the mounting of the router. We highly recommend the use of a water cooled spindle for four main reasons: there is no flow of air to blow the chips around the shop and vacuum is more effective, the noise that a spindle makes compared to a router is considerably less, there is constant torque throughout the cutting process (routers will bog-down when making deep cuts), and generally, spindles will last far longer than routers making the spindle a less expensive option in the long run. Check this video to see the spindle in action.

The machine is completed with the fastening of the gantry back.
