We named this CNC system the Maverick because we broke all the rules when we designed it. It comes with no opional equipment because everything you need is built into it’s one of a kind design.
THREE INDEPENDENT WORK STATIONS
The Maverick CNC features three separate work stations. The first work station is a 3-axis table that can easily be extended from 24″ x 60″ to 36″ x 60″. The table can be setup as a T track table for hold downs, a bench dog table with profile cam locking clamps or a vacuum table. The second workstation is Legacy’s exclusive 5-axis turning center that allows you to turn, index, carve and machine between centers, even on a tapered component. The third work station is the 4-axis vertical clamping table located on the end of the machine allowing you to work on the ends or edges of your work. The table is adjustable thru 90 degrees from vertical to horizontal and can be used to machine precision joinery including finger joints, through dovetail joints, custom interlocking joinery and mortise and tenon joinery. Both the table and fences can be adjusted allowing you to machine angled or compound angle joinery. You can instantly go from turning to 3 axis machining to cutting joinery without any tear down and setups.
LIQUID COOLED SPINDLE
This 220 VAC 400 Hz 3 HP liquid spindle is whisper quiet and provides excellent performance in a compact package. Features include: a water cooled high frequency 2200 Watt motor powered by the variable frequency drive.This spindle uses ER20 collet chuck. The Spindle has NSK bearings with run out measuring less than .005mm.
SMART TOOL TECHNOLOGY
The Maverick is equipped with an automated tool measurement system that measures each tool after the operator loads a new tool. The Smart Tool system can also be used to measure the thickness of stock, set the Z zero height and set the angle of the turning bed.
SUPERIOR TRAINING AND SUPPORT
Getting started with CNC Programming
On Mondays at 5 pm MST Legacy hosts a “Getting Started with Programming” webinar. This class is designed for the absolute beginner who has never programmed for CNC before. For 3 axis programming, the participants are encouraged to open up their V-Carve or Aspire Software and work along side the instructor. For 4, and 5 axis turning, we will be working with Legacy’s CCAM software.
Legacy’s Customer Training
On Wednesdays at 5 pm MST Legacy hosts a customer training webinar. These classes are project based and designed to help you get the most out of your Legacy CNC.
All classes are interactive and in an open forum style. Each class will begin with the planned training. One the class material is covered we open the class up to Q&A where participants are encouraged to bring their questions and have them answered by one of the Legacy training staff or class participants.
The Maverick is controlled by your PC or laptop computer using a customized version of Mach3 motion control software. Legacy utilizes an internet interface for system updates and diagnostics. Our support team can update your software, troubleshoot your programs and even operate your machine remotely. (Remote access requires wifi internet access.)
The Maverick combines a 24 X 60 X 8 inch flat stock work area with a 10 x 58 inch turning system and an adjustable dual angle joinery table to create the industries only 3 station CNC; Routing, turning, and joinery. The combined cutting envelope is unprecedented. 36 X 66 X 8.
Ruggedly built of welded 11 gauge steel folded panels and equipped with a 3hp liquid cooled spindle, this machine is a combination of beauty, power, and versatility.
The Maverick can be setup with toe clamps, bench dogs, cam level clamps, a vacuum clamp or even double-sided tape. The 4-axis turning system combined with Legacy’s CCAM4 software allows you to quickly program turned parts that feature beads, coves, flutes, reeds, joinery, rope twist, barley twist, hollow spirals and much more. The optional Vertical Vise allows you to work on the edges and ends of the parts for machining precision joinery. The Vise is adjustable in two directions allowing you to make compound angle cuts.
