Techno Venture CNC Routers with Rotary Tool Changer
What are the advantages in having a CNC router with a rotary tool carousel as opposed to a stationary tool rack? There are quite a few advantages: you now have unobstructed access to the front and rear of the machine for easier material loading and unloading; quicker tool changes which means faster processing of your sheet material. The Techno Venture Series is a great machine if you want to streamline your CNC production process. Routing is driven by a PC based Osai industrial CNC controller with an easy to use system interface. Your product shop benefits from high speed precision motion, a maintenance free and efficient CNC cutting system, and increased production and profit.

Venture CNC Router Testimonials
Techno Venture CNC Router review with testimonial by CNC programmer and operator, designer of custom furniture for high-end clients.
Hal from Uhuru Design in Brooklyn , NY, explains how the Techno Venture CNC Router has helped their custom furniture and interior design business. They manufacture a wide variety of very creative and high end furniture for residential and commercial clients.
Here you can see the Techno Venture CNC Router fabricating a welding fixture for one of their innovative pieces of furniture.
Hal Woodin— Uhuru Design
“We love our Techno Venture Series 5 ft. x 10 ft. CNC Router.
It has improved our production in so many ways. The speed in which we can produce our furniture has dramatically reduced our delivery times and lets us plan our production very accurately. The CNC has improved our material yields increasing our profits and has limited shop personnel cutting errors. Thanks Techno CNC for such a great, reliable machine!”

Venture CNC Router Detailed Features
The gantry is constructed of tubular steel with reinforcing ribs welded throughout the length of the column which results in a steady firm beam assembly. This quality engineering and workmanship result in smooth precision cutting.
12HP HSD High Frequency Automatic Tool Changer Spindle
The Venture Series machine comes standard with a 12HP HSD high frequency automatic tool changer spindle. This precision spindle requires no maintenance, uses industry standard ER collets and ISO 30 tool holders. Fully programmable speeds from 6000 to 24000 RPM, and comes complete with pneumatically retractable vacuum hood.
The base frame is fabricated from heavy-duty tubular steel that is welded, precision machined and stress relieved so that the foundation remains true and steady over the operational life of the machine.
Gantry Support (Uprights)
The Gantry uprights are cast iron with heavy duty gussets formed into the casting. Each support is machined for housing the various drive assemblies including motors, bearings, belts, and wiring harnesses.
The Venture Series CNC Router utilizes AC Servo motors powered by Delta Drives. These motors require no regular maintenance — therefore, reducing any maintenance downtime.
Drive Train Assembly
The Venture Series uses precision Helical gear racks on the X and Y axes. The mounting of the rack is inverted to help keep dust and debris from building up on the drive system, this assures smooth motion and long term reliability. The precision gearbox is directly coupled to the Servo motor and pinion. This eliminates belt stretch inaccuracies assuring high-speed machining while the system positions the spindle accurately.
CNC Tool Rotary Carousel
The use of an 8 Tool Rotary Carousel speeds up tool changes assuring faster cycle times increasing production throughput.
CNC Tool Calibration
Automatic tool calibration pad allows for easy and accurate “Z” zero position for single and multiple tool changes through the program.
Pneumatic Material Alignment Stops
The Venture Series CNC machine comes standard with three material pneumatic alignment stops. These pins allow the operator to bank the edge of the material against them precisely aligning the material to the machine origin.
Figure on the right illustrates the CNC Router material alignment pins pop open and close for easy sheet alignment.
CNC Router Vacuum Table
The Techno Venture CNC Router has a 1 inch thick phenolic vacuum table surface mounted onto the steel base frame, keeping a rigid and consistent platform for your sheets and parts to be supported.
The vacuum plenum table surface is multi-zoned which allows the operator to easily switch from full sheet processing to smaller part processing,
(which requires a smaller segmented area). Zones can be turned off easily via control valves on the front of the machine. Gasketing can also be routed to accommodate various material sizes and styles.
Venture Series includes a heavy-duty aluminum T-slot profile in multiple locations across the table surface. This T-slot accepts Industry Standard
Available in 230/460V, 50-60Hz, 3 ph or single phase
Comes standard with motor starter, vacuum gauge, primary and secondary filter, check valve and all necessary plumbing to connect to router
Rated for 173 CFM, 25” Hg, 81dB for very quiet operation
CNC Control Panel Functions
The main functionality for the Venture Series CNC Router is accessible on the front panel of the enclosure. Your tools can be placed right on top and the hand-held pulse generator conveniently hangs on the side.

Osai industrial AC servo CNC controller - the Electronics Techno Venture CNC Router
All the electrical components are housed and wired in a doubled-doored Nema 4 electrical enclosure. This allows for easy access and service when needed. All wiring is tagged so that when service is required, the customer can easily navigate the cabinet. In addition, the cabinet serves as a work bench for the tools required.
Hand-held Pulse Generator
The Rotary hand wheel, attached to the machine, will control the axis that is selected on the wheels dial. All other functions are disabled when this is active.
The Setup Introduction manual provides information that will have users cutting parts in minutes.
Comprehensive CNC program interface that is easy to learn and operate.
CNC Windows-Based G-Code Interface is included with each Venture Series CNC machine and is an
indispensable tool in any CNC Router application. It’s open architectural design accepts G-Code files from
any industry standard CAD/CAM software package. The jogging buttons, speed controls and run displays are
all visible on the main page. The intuitive single-screen design and functions are easy to use and remember.
Customers that are new to automation find the Techno CNC Systems CNC Interface easy to learn and operate. Most are
up and running in less than one day. Customers soon discover that just because the Techno CNC Systems CNC Interface
is easy to use does not mean that it is not a comprehensive CNC program.
Several impressive CNC Interface features include:
Built-in editor for shop floor modifications
Machine feed rate and spindle override control
Continuous step jogging, or convenient hand-held pulse generator can be used to fine tune positional locations
Mechanical homing location controls (at any corner of the machine)
No DNC link required
Allows for up to 10 fixture offsets
I/O machine status display
Skip function to return to program positions (in case of tool bit failure)
Convenient vacuum pump switches on interface

CNC Foot Print
Techno offers Becker Rotary Vane vacuum pumps which are quiet, clean, and require minimal maintenance. The standard size we offer is a 10 HP or twin pack, which incorporates two 10 HP pumps mounted on a steel frame. These pumps pull 25'' Hg @173CFM each. This level of vacuum is essential for holding the parts in place while being routed.
Micro-Drop Coolant System
The Micro-Drop Coolant System is ideal for use with the Techno vacuum table. The unit's microdispenser delivers a very small amount of high-performance vegetable-based lubricant to the cutting tool by atomizing the lubricant in a high-velocity air stream. The result is higher material removal rates, improved finish, tighter tolerances and increased productivity.
Techno understands your needs and keeps it simple, giving you the tools to produce your product, and most important providing a quick return on investment. Performance, software programming tools, ease-of-use, learning curve, support, and scheduled updates are the ingredients we looked for when selecting programming solutions to integrate with our equipment. With this stringent criteria, we researched the software industry and concluded that EnRoute, Vetric and VisualMill (RhinoCam) were selections offering the tools that support the majority of our customer needs.
